Don’t blink

I just saw somewhere a blog post that was titled “You blink and they’re five”. I didn’t read the post. Probably I didn’t need to…don’t we know already what it says?

But I would just like to say this to my five-year-in-the-future-self:

You just spent 45 minutes walking the Tiny Tyrant to sleep for his afternoon nap. He was tired.  He was cranky. He was rubbing his eyes. He was fussing. He was scraping at your neck and collarbone the whole time with his pointy little fingers because that is his idea of fun. Your neck and collarbone look like they met one of the cats in a particularly unfortunate encounter.

Oh, the memories, five-years-in-the-future-self, THE MEMORIES.

Look close. Can you see the scratches? (well, maybe you can’t. but they are there!)

    Blink might be an overstatement when it comes to five.

    It’s time to think about letting our little darling scratch the sunnyside of his mattress instead of his mommy’s neck while resisting naps…

    MRs G: I BELIEVE you.

    Mom: *sigh* you know how it goes. for some reason, tho, i think he thinks my collarbone ought to come OFF somehow.
