It's five am. Jack has been talking up a storm for an hour now. The amount of energy he can have at what I consider the middle of the night is mind blowing to me. He was shaking me at four saying "mama, wake up, I wanna watch Thomas & Friends". I tried telling him Thomas was asleep but apparently he doesn't care if me or Thomas are asleep.
So now I'm up. Coffee, chromebook, and Friday Night Lights in the background. How is it that I can watch the same episode of Friday Night Lights twice in one week? It never tires and today is a season one marathon. However, I doubt I'll be watching much of it because I hope to be sleeping. Jack is going to daycare for awhile so I can rest and take care of a few things like showering and shaving my legs so we can hit up the pool later.
Clearly I can't even hide razors from Jack or he'll find them.
Here is his first shaving experience. Can you tell he is being raised by a single mama? Bless his little heart.
Honestly, I feel bad for even telling people because one might think I was being neglectful. I have the blade packs that just clip onto the razor. I get a big thing of them every Christmas. They are packaged indiviidual. I stored them inside a box and were hid in my drawer. During a commercial break he walks out of the room. He comes back in a few minutes later saying "it hurts". He hands me two razor blades. My stomach turned into knots as I went looking for blood. Thankfully, it wasn't too bad but I felt awful. I still wanted to share the story because sometimes things happen to kids because they are curious and fast. I hope no one judges me and I will be more careful with them. I'm thinking I need to buy me a lock box to keep some stuff in.
Jack has been obsessed with the family dog lately. He wants Lilly to be his best friend and Lilly ain't so sure of it. She isn't use to being picked up and hauled around the house. The other day Jack was quiet so my mom went to see what he was getting into. She found Jack and Lilly in the bathroom. She walked in and Jack said "Come on Lilly, let's go". I think it's cute how he loves her and wants her to be his pal.
Just now he brought the dog a book and said "here's a book to read".
I sure do love this crazy child of mine even if he wakes up at 4 am.
