Nope, I don't get paid, but I wish I did to do this. By this, I mean blogging not daddying (Not a real word, deal with it). I apologize for not getting this out earlier as It has been a hectic week, but things are moving along. Lets get into what has happened in another jam packed exciting week of stay at home daddy world.
NO! Don't drop it!
Yup, its official! My son took a toy and dropped it on the ground. Only four months old and he has started the endless pick up battle. I can see myself in the near future bending over too many times to pick up a toy that will be on the ground only milliseconds later. If the saying "necessity is the mother of all inventions" has a small ounce of truth I think I can win the war . Trust me, I've thought of different things that might work so that I don't feel like the Greek mythical character Sysiphus (This character was compelled to roll a huge rock up a steep hill, but before he could reach the top of the hill, the rock would always roll back down again, forcing him to begin again). I've thought of stringing rubber bands together, but I'm not sure how that would help. I think it would be faster picking up the toy or whatever is in his hand, than spending time making the rubber band contraption. If anyone has any suggestions please let me know! Its for a good cause, MY BACK!
Venus fly trap
FEED ME SEYMOUR!!! Yeah, my son now knows how to grasp things and vacuum them into his mouth. He grabs, conquers and licks. It was cute when he didn't know what he was doing and just trying to grab, but now I have to be more conscience of how dirty my hands are. It means they'll get even more dry then they already are; not that I mind it because I'm a man's man, although my wife would say otherwise. He reminds me of a Venus fly trap where anything in close proximity of reach is HIS! He is extending, grabbing and pulling in! Its a work of art and he does it rather gracefully. I'm excited how fast he is developing, but like I said last week, sad that it will be but a memory that I will soon forget.
Its been a great week so far and things are just dandy. I thank the Lord everyday I get the opportunity to be with my son. I don't to take him for granted or ever want to. I know it is a privilege and what I do with him at home is just as important, if not more, as if I brought some some bacon. Peace out and until next time!
P.S. This snow fall has to stop!!!
