I ran out two days ago and I was kinda ragin' over it but was holding out. In the meantime I drank water, usually with lemon or something to mask the untaste of water. That sucky untasteyness (see, it's MY blog so I can just make shit up).
And unfortunately I was giving thought to the decrease in the size of my ass that could result from cutting the obscene amount of calories the sweet tea has. I mean, I'm gaining weight like it's my fucking job lately.
I blame the sweet tea. So today instead of 2 gallons of sweet tea I bought 1 gallon of sweet tea and a 6 pack of Smart Water.
Shut up, it's progress. Rome wasn't built in a day! And yes I know buying plastic bottles of water will fill up the landfills and ruin Earth - I plan on refilling and I recycle so get off my ass, okay?
Alright, back to choosing Smart Water over Fiji or Sam's Choice. Am I really about to admit this? I chose it because I saw Jennifer Aniston drinking it. Well, I didn't see her drinking it, I saw a picture of her drinking it. And I'm on Team Aniston, not Team

If he doesn't like what we're telling him, he shouts, "Stop talking to me!".
When he's told to stop doing something, he puts his pudgy hands on his hips and says, "I'm just gonna do it anyway.".
There are so many other examples but it makes me angry and since I shouldn't go wailing on him while he's asleep...
So, one evening last week I was talking to Mr, trying to sweet talk him into going to the store for one badly needed item - sweet tea!
What? It IS a necessity!
Anyway, I kept adding things to his list when he interrupts me to say, "Okay, just stop talking to me!".
Okay, Aidan, Sr!!

Mama, what are you doing?
I'm making dinner.
Mama, you don't know what you're doing. Daddy cooks. Daddy knows what he's doing.
I can cook dinner sometimes, Aidan.
Okay, Mama, Daddy's gonna have to fix it when he gets home.

What did you do?
Don't lie, why are you back in here looking like that?
I don't know, I just didn't do nothing!
You better tell the truth, what happened, what did you do out there?
(mumbled) Well, I didn't crash into the fence with my
I just didn't crash into the fence with my truck
outside! Now stop talking to me!

I voted for the duct tape but Daddy overruled me so we went to the park by Lake Fayetteville to fly it today.
Meaning Daddy flew the kite while Aidan sat on the picnic table in the shade and complained about being hot, being thirsty (despite finishing my tea, Daddy's Mt Dew, and Asher's juice!), wanting to play his guitar, begging to go home, and so on and so on.
He's such a weird kid - as if the last post didn't prove that fact.

The Puffs phase is also over. He could always be quieted or pacified with Puffs. No longer.
Bananas for breakfast were a favorite for months. Now he throws them, bowl and all, on the floor - while he looks me dead in the eye. Punk!
So, what does a 10 month old with only 2 teeth eat you ask? Brisket, potato soup, pizza, french fries, entire pickle spears... basically whatever the heck he wants to.
Since he was about 4 months old he's been eyeballing our food, shooting us looks as if to say, "Gimme some of that steak, I can take it!".

Usually it's go scare the crap out of Asher and then come tell me he "just woked up".
Sometimes it's raid the kitchen like a starved lunatic.
Yesterday morning was a raid the kitchen day. I guess he grabbed 2 fudge rounds and took them in to show Daddy, who told him to only eat one.
Naturally, he ate them both.
Then, by count, Daddy realizes that somewhere along the way he must have downed a 3rd. Damned if he'd admit it though. Finally we badgered him enough so he admitted it, said he was sorry, and went about watching My Friends Tigger & Pooh.
Later in the day I get in the box - just to count, not eat, right? - and see that Daddy miscounted and Aidan hadn't eaten the 3rd one after all.
So after preschool, I explained to Aidan that Mommy and Daddy made a mistake and we were sorry, he was right and he told the truth and we didn't listen.
Aidan says, "It's okay for yelling at me, Mama."
I said, "Thanks, baby, you're a sweet boy."
He says, "But I wanna buy a new Mommy and Daddy."
Gee, thanks for the forgiveness, kid!
