Barney and Friends????
That's what Buck is doing right now while I peruse the internet... wow. I never thought it would come to this. It's amazing that I'm at all able to block out (at least partly) the cutesy songs and pay attention to anything else... Buck is not so lucky-- he is held captive... he is adding his 2 cents though, with the xylophone and the smacking of a DVD case...
We've been busy. Buck is quickly morphing into a little boy. I actually left last night to help out a friend and was gone for almost 5 hours... Buck was asleep when I got home, and Adam was very happy and a little smug. (He knew that I was worried that Buck would be screaming for me when I got home...) I honestly don't know how I feel about it. On the one hand, it was great to be able to take the time to help out my friend and have my undivided attention to give to something...
On the other hand, it's a blow to my mommy ego that things went so smoothly without me, even if it was only for a few hours...
Buck did make up for not seeing me by nursing pretty much all night... so I guess I'm not dispensable yet!
He has made sure to stay close to me all morning, keeps coming up for hugs and bringing me "presents" (which include chewed pieces of paper and cheerios he picked up off the floor, as well as shoes).
And Adam really liked being the primary caregiver for the night. He was able to soothe at least one big head bonk and got the boy to go to sleep.
Good job, daddy.
