Hooooo boy. This was a fun morning!
After not sleeping much the night before Fickle Junior decided to wake up well before either of his parents were quite ready. Today it was Mom's turn.
Now, Junior is a big fan of cereal. Cheerios to be exact. The first word out of his mouth after being removed from his crib is usually "Cheerios!" Only it sounds more like "Chew-wee-os!" And lately he's started to add extra syllables, so we get to hear him pleading for "Chew-wee-uwee-uwee-os!" It is quite adorable.
What's not adorable? When it turns out he's tall enough to reach the box sitting on the table, smart enough to carry it over to a bowl that he set out in the living room, and coordinated enough to open it up and pour it into said bowl, but not coordinated enough to stop pouring before the entire (very recently-opened, very very full box) is dumped everywhere around the living room.
That was when Ms. Fickle woke me up and told me it was my turn to take care of him while she went back to sleep.
Oh, rise up, Fruit Loop lovers
Sing out sweet & low
With spoons held high
We bid our brother, "Cheerio!"
