It has been a long day here at Chateau Cookie. The Boo sprouted yet another tooth AND also realized that his reign of supremacy may be over. Both things have been a difficult transition for him and for his mother.
For four days last week, a variety of relatives practically went to blows with one another to capture the attention and smiles of the Boo. I watched in stunned silence as the Boo held court, granting a small laugh here or a big smile there. Much to the amusement of his grandparents, great aunt and uncle and Derek’s cousins, he entertained all and heckled those that dared turn a back to him, if only for a brief second.
I spent four days in a panic, realizing that I was becoming one of those parents that is so happy to have someone else look after her child that she may even be deemed disinterested in him. He fell over–“ah, he’s fine.” He cried in hunger and lunged at someone’s plate–“yeah, you can give him crab. What the hell.”
Of course now he thinks he is entitled to be held 24/7. What do I look like? Am I here for your amusement? The kid is driving me crazy (cue Britney). I’m sorry to say, Mister, but you are NOT the center of the universe. At least not anymore.
