So, I had an I-can't-believe-what-you're-doing-but-I-need-to-take-a-picture-first-before-I-yell-at-you moment yesterday with my son. I believe it was the first one. As you can see in the picture, he got ahold of a green highlighter and went to town with it. Let me tell you, it was NOT fun cleaning out that belly button.
Aside from that though, we had a pretty fun day yesterday (and I'm sure if he could speak english, Hunter would tell you that coloring all over himself was fun, too.)
My friend Shannon invited us over to her aunt's house to go swimming. Hunter hasn't been in a pool this year yet, and I'm sure he doesn't remember last year. He enjoyed himself though. We don't have any floaty toys to hold him, so momma just held him the whole time and walked around in the pool. He loved splashing around though. He LOVES bathtime, so I was sure he would love the pool also. Sorry I don't have any pictures of the pool experience...no waterproof camera, and no photographer outside of the pool! After naptime, I decided to try the sprinkler I bought for him. It has been insanely hot already, so I thought a sprinkler would be a good idea to cool him off. I started the water really low so he could just see what it was all about. He was standing right next to it, and was fine, just staring at it, and telling mommy (in his own language) what was happening. So, I decided to turn the water up higher. He didn't like that part. I was spraying on his legs, and he was so shocked, he didn't even run away. He just stood there and cried until I moved him out of the water's stream. He was crying like it was mildly traumatic, but I must say I laughed. After I moved him, he didn't even want to walk anywhere, because the child still doesn't like the feel of grass, leaves, or concrete on his feet. I guess that shows me for not putting sandals on him beforehand. I want to try the sprinkler again to see if we can get an enjoyable experience, but I think I'll wait a while until he forgets about yesterday. I must say though, with all of our new experiences yesterday, he slept in 2 hours later than normal this morning! That's definitely seomthing I could get used to...so new experiences, here we come!
So every couple weeks or so, we've had a condo showing so our landlords can find new renters once we leave. I've spent all day today cleaning the house getting ready for it. It really is a pain getting ready for the showings, but I'll be honest that besides the showings, I have had no motivation to keep the house clean. I am getting to the "why does it matter, we're leaving soon" stage, so it's been really difficult to find the motivation. I have still been cleaning obviously, but the showings are keeping me on my toes and giving me a real motivation to get it done. So I guess I should be thankful for them, in a weird sort of way.
Thanks to Ellisa, I have a new layout for my blog. (Thanks, Ellisa!) I had no idea how all my friends spruced up their layouts until she helped me find my own. I, obviously, love the pink factor. Hope it's easy on the eyes to read!
