17 Week Bump!

First off, I would like to say thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday's post.
It makes me feel better to know that i am not the only one dealing with this type of thing!
Of course I certainly hope it was an isolated incident, and I will be the first to say that I have never seen that little boy 
do anything like this before. He actually seems like a nice kid.
(not that I watch him all the time or anything, but I just might start : )
I know that sometimes in the heat of the moment kids get swept up, and when you're three you don't necessarily 
understand that what you are doing is wrong or hurtful.
He just really wanted to ride the car with his buddy, and I am not reading any more into it than that.

It was a bit of a wake-up call though, to the fact that I actually have to start PARENTING.
So far I have been coasting along on my laurels, thinking 'hot damn this mommy stuff is a piece of cake.'
(as if, but we'll just pretend.)  This is a game changer.  This is where making a silly face or singing 'you are my sunshine' just won't cut it anymore, and I have to start thinking about how to react like an ADULT in these situations.
I am so not an adult yet, and so ill-prepared for this!

Anyways, I'm sure the shoe will be on the other foot soon enough, and all I can do is hope that 
my eyes are open to see, and that I can teach the Little how to share and take turns. 

So, moving on to my other little bambino.....

I lost my little buddy again to the nap monster today, but this momma sure isn't complaining about that : )
The baby is the size of a red onion now,
and is definitely doing some backflips and summersaults!
