. . . because I think she's a bit ornery, too.
Ahhh, I have not completely fallen off the face of the earth, but I have been victim to some sleep deprivation & a nasty cold. Yuck! I actually have a few blog posts rolling around in my head, but I need a few moments that I can make something coherent come out in words.
In the meantime, thought you might enjoy a little chuckle at my expense.
You see this sweet little pumpkin? We had her one month post-placement visit with a social worker yesterday.
But don't let all of that baby cuteness fool you.
This little one has tricks. And timing.
Yesterday was wacky b/c the social worker needed to see EVERYBODY. Yikes. Not an easy thing to pull off, so I decided the best time to accomplish such a feat would be right after school. Yes, the wildest time of the day. So, there was lots of
chaos activity, but we were all taking it in stride. But Kendi decided she needed to eat, so being the efficient mama that I am, I plopped down to make sure she had dry pants before partaking of her bottle.
I put her down on a blanket so that I could keep talking to the SW while changing her. In the midst of it, Kami is in & out looking for everything for her team pictures, a friend is over, Joe is just walking in the door...you get the picture. A bit of hustle & bustle. As I open up her diaper, life took a turn to complete insanity.
The child projectile pooped like someone stomping on a mustard bottle. I had poo up my sleeve, splattered on my pants, & even on my tennis shoes. Seriously. And did I mention that Kaya & K'Tyo were laying there on their stomachs with hands under chins to witness the whole thing?
They never even flinched. They thought it was completely awesome & hysterical all at the same time, & I'm sure it's the subject of sharing time at preschool today.
Maybe with the eighth child, I was getting a little over-confident. I thought I'd seen everything, but I am humbled yet again. It's these cute ones you gotta watch out for.
