The Fun We Have Around Here, You Have No Idea

Today was a pretty shitty day weather-wise, which meant that it was also a pretty shitty day Cubby-wise.

Cubby, as you may have gathered by now, does not appreciate significant amounts of indoor time.  It results in a specific shriek of a pitch and decibel level that I particularly abhor.

Luckily, we received in the mail today a package of newborn-size cloth diapers as a gift.  So several precious shriek-free minutes were devoted to an absolutely hilarious game of, "Does Beaver have a poopy diaper?"

He never did, in case you were wondering.  Those beavers have impressive bowel control.

As entertainment goes, it's a long way from a good book, but it sure beats the hell out of the shrieking.

You surely won't lose that beaver in the woods.

Dude. I know the shrieking. It goes straight to the center of my brain and then causes pieces of it to implode.

And it DOES get worse when we are cooped up inside and/or the Tot has spent excessive amounts of time with adults. I never really put that together until just now.

Are you doing a home delivery or going to the hospital?

It just occurred to me that where you deliver is precisely something that is none of my effing business!!

Blogging is so funny....

One gift down, one to go. The green shows up nicely in your picture. Would have loved to be a fly on the wall to take in that whole game time. Creativity at its finest; your forte!

As usual, I feel for you being locked up inside with an active, vocal Cubby. Hope the weather's accommodating today.
