Ultimate Master Baby Crib Check List
Drama With a Capital I-K-E

Filler

So I took one day off — ONE DAY OFF — to barbecue and visit with friends and binge-watch Arrested Development (ANUSTART) and of course I have been running around like boiling spastic hot ham water all day trying to get caught up on all my various work-y things. 

Well, not running, obviously. Just...sitting at my desk typing V. V. FAST and trying to keep the number of open browser tabs down to a reasonable number. Like 42. Do this thing! Then that thing! Abandon that email mid-sentence to go to some other thing just so you can include the fact that you did that thing in your email, thus making yourself sound all capable and on top of all the things.

Meanwhile, in real life: AAAAAAAAAEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPMAHGERD NOTHING IS DONE AND EVERYTHING IS TAKING MORE MINUTES THAN I HAVE MINUTES TO SPEND GAHAGAHAGAHAGAHAGAHAGHAGHHGGH

You should hire me. I am not at all a complete freaking organization nightmare. Am bit of a liar, though.

SEGUE TIME. IT'S A BRIDGE TO NOWHERE.

I have a couple actual things I want to write about, but as it's definitely looking like I will not have time to write about them today, here are some random photos. Random photos! Yes. Classic cop-out. Old-skool style.

Here is Ike changing his baby's diaper:

I am annoyed that I missed the set-up for this, which included him carefully picking out like, four different cloth diapering options before settling on a pocket diaper. That's my boy.

He asked me to stuff it with a prefold for him and then added a bamboo doubler.

A solid choice, although I might have gone with a fitted instead of a one-size. This diaper was off that baby's butt by the time they got to the hallway. Adjust the rise, Ike! YOU GOTTA ADJUST THE RISE. 

Next, here is Ike again, about 10 minutes after I told him he couldn't go outside because he didn't have his shoes on, and also it was actually a little chilly out there.

Those are some impressive problem-solving skills, honestly.

Finally, here is Ike doing...something else.

YUP.

BONUS RANDOM PHOTO: Noah combed his hair all by himself and then demanded that I take a picture of it.

Lord help us all when this kid gets on Instagram.

Sounds like a great holiday. What exactly *was* Ike doing in that last photo of him? Love his hat, by the way.

I think he was doing Ike's version of planking. Or bridging. Or spanning. Whatever the kids are calling it these days.

Erin

I had that doll when I was a kid! And I was obviously WAY ahead of my time in regards to baby names because I named it Heaven.

Diary of Why

Eeeeee I have the same bathmat. I don't know why this tickles me so much, but, bathmat twins!

If the tv is on, what Ike (forces self to leave off the Baby) is regular old chillin'. And just so you know, I've very interested in the actual things you have to say, but your words have gotta work hard to beat a hat adorned, short sleeved, one croc wearing boy.

Heather

Oh, were there pictures, because I got stuck on Arrested Development! ERMERGERD, I love Netflix and the "semi original series"! Got in several on Sunday, so happy!

Cara

Ike's pre or post meal planking for sure.

kgal

My son (2 yr 4 months) does the exact same thing as Ike with the coffee table and couch! It happens just about daily.

Kate

I laugh out loud at most of your posts, but this one really had me searching for a like button. Too friggin cute.

Kim

Scuse me, lady? There is a hat EATING YOUR BOY"S HEAD. Thought you should know.

jody

Possibly the best laugh I've had all day is that one light blue croc on the wrong food. Love it!

jody

*FOOT. Wrong foot. Yikes. (Can I blame autocorrect?(

As a fellow WAHM/entrepreneur lady, I love when you talk about work, even in little snippets like this. :) Glad to know I'm not the only stress ball. Just spent 5 days in DC and now I'm catching up/freaking out like a mad woman.

kristin

#3 is my life. I'm glad somebody else's kid does it, too.

Luisa

Oh good, glad other people have already mentioned planking. Reverse planking? Ike is so 21st century.

Steph

Reverse planking was the first thing I thought of. Go go not-so-baby Ike!
