Three times a day, every day

Gregory is getting to that age where he doesn’t want to eat in the highchair much anymore. He’d rather sit at the table. Half-way through every meal, he starts to leap out of his chair (his feet on the tray), diving straight at me, food on his every limb. I attack back with wipe in hand, trying to cover as much ground as possible before he actually lands in my arms. Lately he’s taken to growling and roaring as loud as he can when he’s getting ready to leap. It’s really cute.

Things I need

  • another chair for the dining room
  • a new camera
  • child-free time to paint walls & baseboards
  • Ben to sleep in his own bed (scared of dark)*
  • David to sleep in his own bed (scared of heights)**
  • Greg to sleep in his own bed (scared without Mommy)***

*sleeps in my bed

**sleeps on the floor in his room

***sleeps on the couch in my arms while I’m upright
