DISCLAIMER: There is content in this post that some of you may find appalling. Please don't pass judgment on my motherly love. I really do love my son, even if I do put his life in danger.
(according to Phil his life was in danger, I didn't think the situation was quite as dire.)

This week has been both really great, and really busy and not so good, all at the same time. Thursday morning, my WONDERFUL friend Shawna took Orion over to her house to play. Once I had the house to myself, I didn't know what to do!! So, I did what I always do. I exercised for an hour, then started cleaning. No big change, but it was great to be able to do something, and have it stay done for a change. THANK YOU TO SHAWNA!!
Friday morning, Orion and I went to story time at the library. Once again, Orion didn't really get into it, but he loved playing with the train table afterwords. Right when we walked in the door, Philip called, and invited me to go into town and have a late lunch/early dinner with him. I just had to find a babysitter, last minute. So I called my other WONDERFUL friend, Jenifer and asked her if she could watch Orion last minute. Because she is so great, she agreed, and I dropped Orion off at her house an hour later. THANK YOU TO JENIFER!! Philip and I went to Quedoba (I have no clue how to spell that!) then went and picked Orion up. It was a good day.
Today I spent the morning reading my book. I was supposed to finish Halloween costumes, but I couldn't put my book down!! This afternoon, I cleaned the house in preparation for Sunday. Philip even helped by cleaning the basement and Orions room. THANK YOU TO PHILIP!!

Ok, if you have any concerns at all about my motherly capabilities, stop reading now. I don't want to tell you anything that would feed those doubts.

The other night, I was giving Orion a bath. We have a rule in this house, that you can't stand up in the bath, you have to stay seated. Philip even obeys this rule. If he is taking a bath, and the soap is too high to reach from where he is sitting, he calls me in to get it down for him. Anyway, this particular night, I didn't make Orion follow the rules. (And yet, he still lives!!)
The video is a little long, and there isn't really anything exciting at the end, so feel free to stop in the middle! :0)

That's too funny! He looks like he had a great time even though Philip thinks his life was in danger. Phillip walks around the bathtub all the time, and he's still alive. For some reason he won't sit in the tub.

I'm pretty sure there isn't anything that you could post that would make me think you are a bad mom. Orion was so cute though, I thought the video was funny!

We're happy to help any way we can. Glad you had a good date on Friday!
