Baby summer clothes are just so cute.  Our little munchkin spent the long Memorial Day holiday with us camped out in the air conditioned house.  It was sooo hot, and she was just soooo miserable in the heat, that we just stayed indoors where we could control the weather.  She even had a fan in her room to help out with the extreme stickiness. 

We did venture out occassionally for a trip into the sweltering heat.  We had a picnic with the godparents and god-dogger (who is just not nearly as amusing now that she is bigger).  She loved the barbequed chicken and Aunt Sara’s wonderful cornbread stuffing.  She even spent part of Saturday cruising up and down the driveway with her push car.  That little girl must have put more miles on the push car than Daddy did in the CRV. And all in a summer dress.

Day Care Baby

Category: Adventures in Parenting – Mommy Rimes – 10:23 am

I always have this feeling of abondonment as I drop off our offspring for someone else to watch.  She doesn’t care, but I do. I would much rather have my little princess with me all day and feel like a good mommy who raises her own child in a loving environment. 

The baby however, could totally care less that I am gone every day.  Her routine is as follows: we walk into day care and she immediately struggles to get out of my arms.  She crawls as fast as her little knees will carry her to the push cart.  Stands up on it and proceeds to zoom it around the room erradically for the 10 minutes it takes me to put her food away, and explain everything to the wonderful lady who is there taking care of my little punkin’.  I go to hug her and kiss her goodbye, and she flails wildly until I set her back down in front of the pushcart and resumes her wild trip around the baby room, not caring one iota that her mommy has to go to work and take care of a bunch of other people’s children all day.

I know the day will come when she will whine and cry and throw a tantrum every time I try to leave, so I should be grateful that she enjoys the place and the people who take care of her while I am away.  I still can’t help but feel a little lonely as I walk back to my car for the start of my day.

Grass stains

Category: Playtime – Mommy Rimes – 8:03 am

With the weather being so nice lately, we have taken a few excursions to the backyard.  Baby Rimes totally HATES the grass!  Daddy put her down on it in crawling mode, and she immediately lifted herright hand and left leg so that they wouldn’t touch the grass.  She refused to budge unless one of us held her hands so that she could walk-as long as she had shoes on her feet.

The one thing that redeemed us in her eyes was the most fantastic find of a tennis ball from the tennis courts that she discovered and chewed on for a solid 30 minutes while Mommy got the bikes cleaned up.
