7am I wake up. None of my sisters are up yet so I make some noise until Amelia climbs down and gets me out of my crib. I make sure to take my pillow, blanket and 2 baby dolls out of bed with me and drag them around. I find my way to Mommy’s bed, where I make sure to wiggle a lot and stick my elbows into all of her tender spots.
My mommy sleeps later than usual lately because she has this baby doll that she keeps in her room at night I think. I don’t know much about her or where they got her but I like to poke at her eyes and see if I can pull her arms off. My mommy doesn’t like this.
At breakfast I eat some of the cereal that Daddy gave me, but mostly I dump it all over the kitchen island, bench and floor. Then I try to get all the milk out and I dump that all over my shirt. Then I climb down and get myself a cheese stick. When Amelia and I brush our teeth, I decide to also wash my feet. I climb onto the counter and sit with my feet in the sink and run a lot of water. I like to do this alot. Mommy scolds me and pulls me off the counter.
When Mommy takes a shower, Amelia and I get to watch Daniel Tiger. I like this for awhile, but then get bored. I don’t like to do anything for too long. I discover a bottle of baby lotion on my Mommy’s nightstand. I spread it all over every part of my body. Mommy takes it away. When Mommy is changing that baby doll, I pull the nightstand over. That means that a cup of water spills all over the floor and things crash to the floor. Mommy is not happy. While she is cleaning that up, I busy myself with unscrewing the top corner bedpost.
That baby doll is sleeping in her bassinett again. I want to make sure it’s actually sleeping so I poke her in the face repeatedly. I know she’s awake now because she cries. I tell her ‘shhhhh, shhhh’ but she keeps crying. Mommy is not happy. While Mommy is rocking her in the bassinett, I find a tube of lanolin cream with the diapers that I promptly unscrew and try to eat. Mommy takes it away again. She says this ‘no’ word alot.
While Mommy is brushing her hair, I find a new tube of deodorant under the sink. I take it into my room and put it under my arms and all over my belly. Mommy takes that away too.
Next we go on a walk. There are puddles everywhere and I make sure to hop and splash through every single one. I get to carry the mailbox key, but I choose to chew on it instead. At the bank I get a taffy, chew on it with the wrapper on, and the bank lady gives me a new one because she says that is ‘ucky’. I didn’t notice. When we get home I help myself to another cheese stick and make sure to leave the fridge door open. Mommy tells me no more cheese sticks. We play outside and somehow the hose is on! I spray it at my sister. Mommy takes it away. Now we all smell like old hose water. I ride my scooter, Mommy says I look like a Flinstone, whatever that is.
When Mommy is making lunch, I dig around in the pantry. I figure out how to take the lids off 2 separate parmesan cheese containers. While Mommy is putting those back on, I remove the lid from the lemonade powder and dump some on the floor. Mommy doesn’t like that. I try to get myself another cheese stick.
I don’t eat much lunch. Then I have to take a nap. I make sure to take all my pillows, blankets and baby dolls back into my crib. I also make sure I have a pacifier. Mommy and Daddy only let me have it to sleep anymore, what a deal.
When I wake up I yell for Mommy. She comes and gets me and we watch a little bit of a movie. I cuddle with her but then decide I’d rather bounce on her feet. We go outside to play and I make sure to get completely soaked in the rainwater sitting in the wagon. We go on another walk and I take a baby doll, Mommy says only 1, not the 3 that I want to take. I make sure to get distracted by anything and everything so that the walk is not as long as it should be. I find a container of string my brother left on the table and I make sure to tangle it even more than it already was. Mommy takes that away too. I try to get another cheese stick but Mommy puts it back.
Mommy feeds us dinner. She gives me a plate and fork but I don’t need that fork thing, I prefer to grab the food with my hand and shove it into my mouth while making sure it is smeared all over my face and hair. When I get out of my chair I make sure to touch all of the walls because I leave a mark with the lasagna all over my hands!
Mommy says we all have to take baths. Amelia and I take one together and Lucy washes my hair. I scream because I don’t like water over my head. I brush my teeth for about 5 seconds, toss the toothbrush in the sink and take off in my towel. Mommy brushes my teeth sometimes and I scream like a banshee. For bedtime I pull 18 books of the shelf to find the one I want. I do go to sleep without a struggle but those other 2 older sisters of mine like to fight at bedtime.
