This morning, Jackson was up in a good mood--onery, but in a good mood. After his milk and some cartoons, Mommy had to go put her contacts in a go to the bathroom. Jackson hung out in the bathroom for a minute, then ran off. When I came out of the bathroom, this is what I walked up to find:
I guess Jackson wanted to help Mommy out with some of her processing!! And yes, he climbed up on that pub chair all by himself--my little monkey!! But right after that, my day went to hell in a a hand bag. I picked Jackson up from that chair, only to find that he had pooped, and it had come out the side onto the chair. So, I talk him in to change him, get his diaper off, clean him up, and he takes off! He runs into the kitchen, and while I'm throwing the diaper away and then proceed to grab the ChemDry to clean the chair, I hear water running. But it's not water--Jackson is peeing on the floor in the kitchen! Silly Mommy didn't put a Pull-Up back on him (we are officially in Pull-Ups!!). I yell, "JACKSON!" He grabs his penis, looks up and me, and I say "You DO NOT PEE ON THE FLOOR! If you have to potty, you go on the big boy potty!" And with those words, he hauls ass into the bathroom and points to the toilet. I put him on the potty, and of course, nothing at this point, as it's all on the floor of the kitchen. This throws a monkey wrench in my day, because now I have to Clorox the floor. Jackson gets to spend a lovely 30 minutes in his high chair watching Mommy clean up the piss!! The rest of the day was spent returning emails, playing with Legos, getting dinner ready, picking up EVERY TOY IN JACKSON'S TOYBOX that he decided to pull out and bring into the living room..........I'm tired and crabby now. Sometimes I think "I didn't sign up for THIS motherhood--I wanted the simple life with a Nanny!" But I still love him....
