Before I forget...ashlantic I love the reading corner! So bright and cheerful! And yes, Leo has been picking about food. First, I think he was tired of the same stuff so I changed it up. Now he'll eat something one day and love it but won't want it the next. He's testing the limits. When do I start saying no treats until you finish your dinner or eat some veggies? And the treats are usually fruit so I feel bad saying no, but I hate that he won't just eat his dinner.
As for picky toddler eating... DD is my picky one as littlelion said she will eat something one day and then hate it the next. LO has nesr been picky, but I have noticed he doesn't have much of an appetite lately, I think it is because he has 2 teeth come in. I think it is just being a toddler and if you keep offering they will try it or eat it again. littlelion I shaved me legs for the same reason! I also did it the other day when DD came up to rub my legs and told me I needed to shave them (she's 3 😂)
Omg! I have lost all motivation!!!! We move Saturday and I feel like I still have so much to do. I finished the kitchen. Now trying to decide between LO's room or our room. Right now with no AC it is like 85 in LO's room because it faces west. My room has the window unit in it (LO sleeps with us). The movers told me I could leave all the clothes in the drawers and no need to pack them. So I'm going to rearrange them. Thinking that might be the winner. Anyone find that magic wand I'm looking for! Oh and hard to pack when LO wants to snuggle.
littlelion thanks! Leo sounds exactly like my lo about food. We'll just keep rolling with it I guess. nemomof2 I think teething is a factor in his pickiness too. babyw15 if you find a magic wand let me know, I want one too! Lol ourcrazynavylife I was going to suggest a baby gate like we have for our cat's dishes... but duh, a dog can't jump the gate like a cat can. I don't really know except for lots of redirecting and reminders not to touch the dog's stuff. Maybe a little corner you can tuck it so dog can get to it but it's not as noticeable/enticing for a curious toddler?
Took lo to the park this morning before it got too hot. There was only 1 other kid there, a 5 year old girl. Her grandma was just sitting there reading a book, and I think the girl was kind of lonely/bored so she spent the whole time playing with lo. She was really sweet and lo liked trying to imitate her. She even gave lo a picture she drew when we were leaving!
Poor lo has pooped 4 times today. I even put him in a disposable for nap so I could put some Desitin on. His little booty was looking so red.

@ashltantic Poor little guy! Diaper rash is the worst. Fx the desitin helps a bunch. ourcrazynavylife I've just given up completely and out the dog dish on the counter when LO is around. I sneak it back on the ground when he's sufficiently redirected. babyw15 GL finishing up packing! You got this! littlelion & nemomof2 I'm down to shaving my legs like once a week. Even though it's summer. Even though it's 100 degrees outside. Because I officially DGAF. And I don't even have being KU as an excuse!

AFM - long day. LO was cranky again after DC but it was nothing like yesterday or Tuesday. I was supposed to have dinner with a friend tonight but she cancelled at the last minute and I was super disappointed because I really, really wanted to get out of the house and have some regular person time (i.e., not work time, not mom time, not wife time, not alone time). Oh well. Going to my sister's house this weekend with my mom to be on baby watch! She's scheduled to be induced on the 15th but of course no guarantee she'll make it that long. It's her third, all girls, and no name picked out yet that she's sharing, so we're all super excited.
Hi guys! Internet hugs to all of you and your LOs. We're doing well, just very busy lately. I really want to go on a vacation and thinking about doing a weekend getaway this weekend. My parents visited last weekend and that was really stressful. Work is super busy. Need some major chill time. ashlantic that reading corner is SO cute ourcrazynavylife hope your reno is coming along nicely! littlelion hiiii Leo! Hope you're doing well. laceysbryan I'm still in the interview process- one final interview to go which apparently could take place in Madrid... Or over video conference. But the recruiter said it might be a while until the interview bc everyone in Spain goes on vacation all August. (Which is exactly why I want to move there so I can't hate ) so just waiting around for now. Still not sure how they will react to me being pregnant, that's a major stress point for me. Legally they're not supposed to, but. You know, people do.
