Spaz Attack

Thoughts from a big spaz who has lots to spaz about.

Wednesday, April 09, 2008

A couple of nights ago, Tyler woke up in the middle of the night crying and screaming, "Mommy, get on the train!" I guess he even dreams about trains. The boy is obsessed.

Yesterday morning, Tyler woke up and heard the garage door closing. He asked, "Mommy, what is that noise?" I told him that daddy was going to work. He then blew some kisses into the air and hugged himself. When I asked him what he was doing, he replied, "I'm giving daddy kisses and hugs." Ahh, too cute!

Yesterday night, Jason brought home a gift that a patient had given him. Tyler quickly grabbed the tin container out of his hands, opened the lid and exclaimed, "Oooooooh, napkins!" like it was the best gift ever! He didn't realize that there were cookies underneath the plain white napkins! Jason and I had a good laugh.

Yesterday, Tyler had a really hard time going to school. He kept crying and saying, "I really want to go home." Of course, it broke my heart to leave him there but I knew that I had to...otherwise, he would cry everyday! Anyways, when I picked him up at the end, he didn't give me the usual hug and kiss. When I asked him where my hug and kiss was, he said, "No, because I don't like you." This is not the first time he has said this to me and I'm sure not the last. Even things like this make me smile because it reminds me how cute children are...just saying how they feel at the moment.

This afternoon, while Tyler was playing with his toys and I was on the computer, he said, "Mommy?" After I asked him what he wanted, he said, "I love you." It was so out of the blue and caught me off guard. He went right back to playing but I just stared at him awhile and soaked in the moment.

Yesterday, I was looking through an old Parents magazine and saw a picture of an infant sucking on his toes. It's such a cute sight to see...a baby sucking on his toes. Anyways, then it dawned on me that I have NEVER seen Tyler or Chase do this. So, I actually laid Chase on the ground and tried to lift his toes to his mouth and his fat toes couldn't reach his mouth because of his fat tummy! OH! That is why I had never seen Tyler and Chase do this! Cause by ALL accounts, I just have the fattest babies around. Chase is now 8 months old, but at 7 months, he was weighing a good and heavy 23 pounds! Tyler was the same way. Crazy, right?

Speaking of being overweight. I totally understand how overweight people feel. Let me explain. I am a mom of an overweight child. (I'm speaking of Chase here. Tyler, thank God, is normal now.) I get stares. I get chuckles. I see people elbowing each other as they walk past us. I get "oh my god"s! I get "Wow...he sure is malnourished!" (Oh, that is so funny. yuh ka, yuh ka!) And sometimes, I feel kind of self conscious! Like, do they think I just sit at home and stuff my child?

This is totally not related, but just a random thought. Don't ever go shopping at Costco when you have PMS. Or, I will rephrase that: Don't let PMS go shopping! I went last week (The day before I swore off Costco.) and I bought three different type of bread: Miltons multi grain, cinnamon swirl, and french bread AND three different "chocolate" items: chocolate covered almond clusters, Kirkland chocolate chips cookies (24 in a pack!) AND Hershey 100 calorie pack. GROSS! What am I going to do with all this!? I gross myself out. So, the moral of the story, don't let your PMS go shopping. And for some reason, when I write that, I visualize a big ol' tampon walking up and down the aisles of Costco pushing a cart. Sorry! Can't help where your mind takes you sometimes!

We don't have cable at the moment. I won't go into details why, but it has to do with a husband who calls "fraud!" and threatens to write nasty letters to the Better Business Bureau and anyone else who doesn't really care. I just say the jokes on you when the report your ass to a collections agency and your credit score goes down. But, he is a man of "principles" and I'm just stuck at home with an useless big fat TV. My pleas that start with, "But Tyler learns so much by watching Calliou on PBS!" continues to go in vain.

So, what are my days filled with? Hmmm, I took Tyler to Disneyland on Monday. We had fun and I was reaffirmed of the fact that Tyler is scared of everything! I am so glad we have an annual pass so I don't feel pressured to do everything in one day. We stayed for only about three hours and then Tyler told me he wanted to go home. I was like, "Good, I feel the wrinkles forming and sunspots coming to the surface of my skin," and we jetted out of there.

Today I took both boys to a music class. There are very few classes that I can sign both Tyler and Chase up for since the age gap. When I saw this one, I immediately signed them up. I've been to different "music" classes for kids, but I was impressed with this one because they had the children repeat sounds and stuff. Anyways, the parents are heavily encouraged to participate in the dancing, and I left feeling winded. One of these days, I swear, I'm going to get my fat body back into shape! One of these days, I tell ya!

Have a happy Wednesday or Thursday or whatever day you're reading this! Heck, have yourself a great week!
