is my husband's 41st birthday. Whew when I write that I feel pretty young! But first, yes, you've guessed it. We had another tantrum episode. I think we can average them down to "2 photo" tantrums before he quits his nonsense and says cheese. Today I told him I was taking the photo to send to grandma to which he shouted, "NOOOOOOO!" "Then stop it", I said.
I sent him on timeout and he didn't like it one bit.
I have to tell you what led to this.
He was jumping like a madman on the sofa, ottoman and the chair. Rolling and tumbling. Back and forth he jumped
ME : Christopher stop jumping on the furniture
HIM : Sorry Mama
Yet he continues to do it
ME : Christopher do not jump on the sofa.
HIM : Sorry Mama
ME : Didn't daddy tell you not to do that?
HIM : Yes mama
He continues to do it and I think I gave him enough chances
ME : Christopher what did I just tell you? If I have to repeat myself again that's it Mr.
He sits on the sofa. His cheeks are red, he is so worked up. He starts back again. What am I a joke? I don't even warn him this time. The TV comes off and I tell him to march upstairs.
Ok like I said, today is the husband's birthday and it rained just for him, so his job cancelled! He was excited! I mean what are the chances of it raining on his birthday? Yesterday it rained and they made him work in the mud. It was a messy affair. He was quite the sight when he came home. I hope he doesn't get sick. His boots were soaked.
We went to lunch. Grandpa drove from Irvine to meet us. Before lunch we stopped at the mall. He was shopping for his present for himself. He wanted tools and tools is what he got. You should have seen these 2 men in the tools section at Sears. It was a sight. They were both so excited. He bought himself some close ended wrench set that, to me, was way over priced. "It's Craftsman", he said. Yeah whatever! His dad bought him a tool bench. Is that what they're called? Maybe cabinet may be more appropriate. Oh I just checked, it's a Craftsman tool center. The big ones with wheels and locks on them, because God forbid I try to break in there for a screwdriver.
We also got something for me. So goodbye 24 hour fitness. The monthly fees were a gift to them from us. I couldn't go regularly. 10 months this went on for. No more, we both agreed. So this was the present before I got to work on assembling it. It had less screws and pieces than that stupid desk so I was positive I could handle it.
But sadly I got this far and when I turned that back wheel something was rubbing on the inside. It's supposed to be really quiet and since this thing costed way too much money, it has to go back. Hopefully they have more in stock. I saw a scratchy mark on the wheel, like it got damaged in packaging. So Bill at Sears, we'll be calling you tomorrow and this baby's coming back.
