What a way to start the day

Some mornings are just crazy. The kind that makes you want to climb back in bed and just stay there. Today was one of those mornings.

My son is funny. Or at least he thinks he is funny. Or at least he does funny things. When he wakes at night, he doesn't cry. He just lays in his crib, talking to himself and playing with his pacifiers. Last night was 0ne of those nights. Camden decided to do that "talking to himself" thing from 3 am to 4 am. He was fed, warm, and comfy, but didn't want to go back to sleep. Of course, as his parents, we try to sleep, but those little giggles keep waking us up and almost make us giggle. Almost.

That wasn't funny enough for him. Next he decided to start the day at 5:45 am (I was up already). Not really a problem, but it does throw off the rest of his schedule and means Mark has to be awake to watch him while I get ready.

To add to the fun, he then he refused to nurse, which meant I had to make him a bottle. Again, not a big deal, but just enough to throw off the schedule a bit. Plus it snowed last night, so Mark was out shoveling and I was preparing to take Camden to daycare on icy, slippery roads.

Just as we were ready to leave to daycare (mind you, I was already running a bit late from the nursing refusal and the snow), Camden decided to have one of his famous poop explosions - one of the worst yet. It was all up his back and all over the cute outfit I had him in. So we had to change him. I had the fun task of washing off his back and his bum. Mark had the fun task of washing the chunks of poo of the clothes (hope you are not eating breakfast as you read that).

Finally, I had him ready again and we headed out the door. The driving was slow because of the snow, but we made it to daycare safe and sound. I dropped Cam off, gave him a BIG kiss, and headed back to work. I made it to work just as the 2nd bell was starting to ring. My 1st hour class was waiting in the hall and hoping I wouldn't show up (Poor kids - get their hopes up and then I DASH them to pieces! Muhaha!).

It can only go up from here right?
