Why is my life so eventful lately? Or maybe it's not and I'm just overreacting. Either way I feel as though I'm slowly going crazy. Well, maybe not slowly since Mike said I've been acting strange for over a week.
OK, back to what's going on now - today I took Logan to get his Christmas pictures taken. I went alone. ALONE! Can you say crazy?? The appointment was at 11 am - we arrived about 10:50. They tell me they're running about 10-15 minutes behind. More like 20-25. Thankfully, Logan was very well behaved while waiting - he even managed to make a friend in the process. (And charm some ladies that were there.) Until he decided to tip his stroller backwards and fall into it, managing to give himself a nice bright red bump under his eye. Hopefully it won't show up too much in the pictures. We go in to do the photos and everything is going great.........until the photographer freaks him out. She accidentally hits a button that operates the background changes which scares the bejeezes out of him. From that point on there was NO WAY he was getting back up on the table for anymore photos. So we were done - which was not good because we had only gone through the Christmas backgrounds. We had not yet made it to the everyday backgrounds. Again, not good because we've only had Logan's picture taken professionally once a year. So for the grandparents and us this picture is displayed year round. And personally, I think it would be a little cheesy to have a Christmas picture displayed year round.
So on Sunday we are going to another store to get his pictures taken again. This time with a traditional background.
The afternoon went fine for the most part (largely due to the fact that Logan had almost a 3 hour nap). But then I had the crazy idea to go out for dinner. We decided to hit one of the MANY Mexican restaurants in town. Logan was not being that cooperative so we were trying to entertain him and keep him happy anyway that we could. He was having a good time putting some silverware into one of the water glasses (plastic) and occasionally banging the silverware on the table. If you've ever had a little one you know that they like to make noise. So he was banging the silverware but it wasn't very loud and definitely not nearly as loud as the music playing at the restaurant. After a couple minutes of this (not constantly) a man sitting in a table by us turned around and put his finger to his lips to SSHHH Logan. Can you imagine? I was so tempted to say something to him - something along the lines of "would you rather listen to him scream?" but thank God I am married to a rational husband. As soon as the guy did that Mike just stared him down and basically dared him to say something. The man did not.
So there was my day - how was yours??
PS - something BIG might be going on early tomorrow. Stay tuned and send good thoughts this way :)
PPS - thanks for the suggestions on the umbrella stroller. We do have one but right now it's more of a headache since Logan wants to push it around.
