It's not an "exposition" game. It's an "exhibition" game.
It's not "The Colosseum". It's "The Coliseum".
Of course, "Mommy Brain" is just something stupid people have coined because they finally have an excuse for their stupidity. I FINALLY HAVE AN EXCUSE!!
In other news, Garrett is pulling himself across the room and will probably start crawling any minute now. His very first destination? An electrical outlet!! Are babies really that cliche'? Luckily, he turned around with one loud, "Garrett, NO!" However, I have to start baby-proofing three weeks ago. I'm not going to go crazy with the baby-proofing. Just the basics: A couple of gates, a couple cabinet locks, and some outlet covers. Probably a coffee table bumper as well. I promised myself I wouldn't get a toilet lock. I'm hoping to keep that promise.
I'm still figuring out the nanny thing and it makes me sick to my stomach. Is it so wrong that I just want to be home every minute hanging out with my child? I mean, that's a little bit of an exaggeration. I'd like to leave occasionally. But the whole, "paying someone to watch your kid" thing really kills me. At least I made it seven months without it. And if I never work again, I might go a lot longer! Don't get me wrong, I'm not judging ANYONE who has someone to watch their kid... I'm actually judging myself for not figuring out how to do it. I just want to find a person who's totally flexible, can watch Garrett ONLY when I need to go to an audition, a job, or the supermarket, and can live on $30 a week. WHY IS THAT SO HARD TO FIND?
And with that, I am going to have a bowl of Cheerios and go to sleep.
