Mr. Mommy

So I’m home for a couple weeks with my new daughter while her mother goes back to work. And I have to say, I’m pretty disappointed in my child for not being a better listener.

She doesn’t eat when I tell her to, she doesn’t sleep when I tell her to and she refuses to answer my questions or do any chores. In fact, not only is she rebellious, I’m starting to get a bit frightened at how she doesn’t even answer me when I ask her to do something. She sits in that swing-thingie in the corner, that plays the creepy lullibyes, and just looks at me … and looks at me … and looks at me.


This kid is cold-blooded. Thank God she doesn’t know how to use her hands yet.

I had all these plans for doing things around the house this week, but a slight lack of sleep, and all this wonder 24/7 coverage of the Life and Times of Sarah Palin, has me parked on the couch. It’s a good thing I’m exceedingly skilled at laying on the furniture, which will come in handy now that football season is almost here.

    Try not to pull a muscle with all that vigorous slouching. Oh, and enjoy the time “off,” if you can call it that.
