So, last night there was a minor monkey-mergency. Basically, he was too asleep to make it to the bathroom, so he peed in his doorway, stripped off his clothes and face planted back on top of his blankets. Naked.

This caused much panic from the spousal unit who was still awake. Which led to me being woken up and shoved toward the monkey room. I checked the bed for wet spots, got fresh jammies on the monkey, grabbed up his wet clothes, all while Jens was sopping up the puddle. Then I sprinkled baking soda liberally, because children and puppies are not so different no matter what most folks say, let's be honest here.

And before I went back to bed I had a chat with Jens, along the lines of, "Why did you need to get me up for that?" Apparently, the way I can't see what needs to be done when it comes to electronics and the fixing thereof, he can't see what needs to be done with a naked monkey and a pile of pee soaked clothes. That's MOM STUFF.

Fast forward to this morning, I'm juggling all the breakfast stuff to get a hot breakfast to the monkey and spouse. Eggs, maple bacon, croissants, and coffee for Jens and I. They're eating while I'm fetching milk for monkey and pouring coffee so that I can sit down to my considerably cooler breakfast of eggs, bacon, and croissants. And I come back in with the awesome mug my bestie, Liz, got me. It says, "I'm a MOM. What's your super power?"

Monkey reads this and immediately goes, "Being a mom is NOT a super power." And Jens pipes up, "UH. Yes it is. Last night when you were naked and on top of your covers it looked like one to me!"

And I am pointing out to this child that I do a lot that he doesn't notice, he just thinks things magically happen around the house (much like Oma's perma-stocked cupboards I had to educate him on the other day). And he, remembering what I told him before, says "Nothing happens by magic!"

"That's right! People do it! I do it! There's work that gets done that you don't notice!"

And Jens says, "A sufficiently advanced mother is indistinguishable from magic." <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

Some days, there are huge perks to being married to a geek. Also, I need this on a mug. NEED. IT.

Sammy comes back from Oma and Opa's living room for a refill on his drink.

Me: OK, do you want milk or tea this time?
Sammy: MILK!
Me: OK, do you want goat milk or vanilla milk (soy)? *holds out the two cartons*
Sammy: GOAT! That's a goat!
Me: Yes it is, you want goat milk?
Sammy: JA!

Half a cup full of goat milk is poured and handed over. Sammy is excitedly headed back to Oma and Opa's while drinking from his cup. He suddenly stops and holds the cup out to look at it.

Sammy: ... Goat. *walks solemnly down the hall*

Day 08.

Day 08. A song that you know all the words to: Dude. Sammy LOVES this song. I know all the words and sing it pretty regularly for him. I give you, I've Got a Lovely Bunch of Coconuts.

What to look forward to! )

Rammstein is touring this fall! TOURING! AND I CAN'T GO! :'-(

I told Jens we can go and take 6 week old Sam (YES IT'S A BOY). They can stay in a hotel and I can rejoin them after the concert. He said no, he wasn't going to go and stay in the hotel with the baby. Then I suggested that we take Sam and get him signed! Jens said, he's pretty sure he'd get custody, of Sam and the dog. And he'd ship me home to my mother and have them file crazy papers on me.

Got an early visit from the Jehovah's Witnesses today. They were standing well back from the door and looking rather apprehensive when I opened it. This was likely because the Frog was going berserk standing in the window before I got down there to open the door. (Frog was put in the laundry room, no chance he could jump out at them.) They gave me a pamphlet and seemed very happy to be getting on their way. A very short visit. I was amused.

Baby's First Mercy Killing. [livejournal.com profile] felisdemens post was metaquoted but the whole thing is hysterical.

And a few things off of Youtube: )
