I have an addiction to reality TV. The Bachelor, Project Runway, Dancing with the Stars....you name it and I love to watch it. Thankfully we have TIVO so I can feed my addiction. Mallory's 7:30p bedtime also helps because I have lots of time after she begins her beauty sleep to develop my deep dark eye circles from staring, glazed-eyed at the TV.
Most parents worry about their child developing a reputation when they reach their teens. And I'm not talking about those children who have a reputation for doing their homework, doing their chores without having to be asked or just generally being a perfect child. No, I mean those that have a reputation for being bad....staying out past curfew, carousing with the "wrong" crowd. You know what I mean.
Horror of horrors, I've been let in on a secret: Mallory has developed a reputation at the wise old age of 15 months. I learned of this in passing while talking with a friend. "Mallory and (insert name of other child) have a reputation at daycare for biting." Well no one told me!
How did this come about? Is this just a product of plain `ol bad parenting skills? Or, is this just a glimpse of her personality to come? Who knows....but until this phase is over mommy and daddy are making sure to wear multiple layers of clothes so we don't get scarred!
It seems like everyone is doing it, so why shouldn't I start a blog? I love to take a moment to peek into the lives of others....so why should I deprive others of being able to peek into mine? Just a quick warning, it's pretty boring!
Hey! Just me checking in with you. I'd like to think I'm a plain-jane girl with all my priorities straight but those who know me know differently! I'm a work in progress. Mommy to two beautiful kids and wife to a wonderful man who puts up with a lot of my, shall we say, difficult requests. Will you join me? I'm working on my point-of-view. It just takes time to find the right picture.
