Today dragged on and as of now, 10:44 pm, I have finally received a moment for myself. No running today, no gym, no in-home workout, no bathroom break without a tiny voice going "pee-pee Mommy?". So instead of reading up on the Zone of Proximal Development and scaffolding for tomorrow's work, I decided to take a moment and blog instead :)
It took me every ounce of my being to stay awake long enough to cook dinner. Between the tantrums, meltdowns, explosive diapers, bruises, and the 27 spoons I have had to wash (MG loves to take spoons out of the silverware drawer then hide them around the house), I managed to find some happy moments that helped me get through this never ending day.
Happy Mother/Runner Moments:

#3: Chasing MG through the house while I rode his big wheel (it broke in the end, but it was fun while it lasted).
#2: Figuring out where MG has begun hiding his food (underneath his bottle... the bottom is indented in)
#1: MG reaching the point in his development where he picks out his own clothes (today it was Santa pj pants and a Mickey Mouse T-shirt) and there was no convincing him otherwise.
