well, that's great. super. uh huh... yup. my son just yelled that from upstairs. HE'S 4.

what drove him to such strong words? i told him (after 4 days of NON-STOP TIME TOGETHER) that I needed some alone time. I suggest he go play trains in his room for 10 MINUTES. Just 10. Then he trashed his train set in order to get me up there to fix it. I beat him at his own trick by putting cartoons on for him (I'm a crap mother). I know what some of you are thinking: "poor woman, stuck with her adorable son for 4 extra-loving days straight, the HORROR!" I'm not a stay at home mom, okay? For good reason... I get really irritated with being climbed and goobered upon, yelled to, splattered with food, tripped, cried at, noodle-legs-ed at, candy OD'd upon and the like. Four days straight is a marathon for me.

Anyway, he's done NOTHING I asked him to do today and now he finally starts mouthing off.

And yes, HE DID HEAR THAT TYPE OF LANGUAGE FROM ME, I'm sure. (I said I was a crap mother).

Ugh, as much as I don't want to go back to the lab tomorrow, I think it's the safest place for me to be when my sanity is concerned.
