Is it Friday yet?????

Black Monday, 1929. The start of the Great Depression.

Even in my flair for drama I won't pretend to compare the difficulties of my day with the trials and troubles of the Great Depression. So I'll just call today "Very, Very, Very Dark Gray Monday."

Not sure if it's teething issues or just plain ol' crankiness, but M is one big ball of emotions today. What a way to start the week! There were a couple of meltdowns before breakfast and quite of few while we were visiting the Marburys and an extremely long, continuous one while we drove home.


On a much lighter note, here is M doing his new favorite trick: walking backwards!

The judge from Sweden gives that walk a 10!

Sounds like a fun morning. :-(

Hope tomorrow is better.

I couldn't get my two to bed fast enough last night! Hoping today is a better one for both of us! :)

we too having been having grey not so good days!!!! bright side is C has been taking two naps a day instead of one. He has also learned "NO" and yesterday mastered "MINE". He's not happy unless I'm carrying him around. I'm going to look like Popeye with my massive arm muscles!!!! It seems to calm down the more words that they master.
