Queen of No.

This week has been pretty Eh. Work is getting more busy, Rick and I go about about our daily routines. Get ready, drop off Ricky, work, pick up Ricky, dinner, play, bath, bed, sleep. Repeat.

Sometime in the middle of all this "Eh", I became the NO! Mommy. All day (ok, all evening since I work during the day) long I feel like all I say is "No No NO!". He hears me, he looks at me, then he keeps doing it. And the next day he does it again. And again, and again.

We have a playroom and it isn't 100% Ricky proofed. There are still blinds on the windows, although there are items in front of the windows blocking him from getting to the blinds. Even so, he somehow finds his way and starts crushing the cloth honeycomb blinds. And to the changing table which has baskets with diapers, wipes, bibs and other random crap. He absolutely loves to just grab a basket and put his hand on it and then he waits. Waits to hear me say NO!

I hate saying No. Some days it feels like that is all I say. I know I will have to pick and choose my battles, I was just hoping it wouldn't have to be so soon.

Tomorrow should be interesting. We are heading up to Baltimore to meet some amazing ladies. Ladies that I have only known on a Mommy forum. But these ladies, these are some of the most supportive, trustworthy, truly beautiful women I have ever met. I am kinda nervous ya know, but so super excited at the same time. It will be great. I think there are um - 6 or 7 Moms, a couple husbands (but they might hit the closest Home Depot - hehe), and plenty of widdle ones.

I hope Heather knows what she is getting herself in to.
