...He's also a non-eater and an insomniac. Hmmmm. Something happened and I missed it. For the past (almost year) il postino was coasting on 12 hour a night sleeps (with the occasional midnight jump-on-bed-giggle-a-thon) and then rather recently it's "I'm an all night party person, and I'm so emo I'm going to cry-sing in the pitch-darkness until you rescue me from my prison of despair" which of course I do because Archer's scream is the loudest, most high-pitched radar-esque noise I've ever heard and I'm afraid he will somehow bring down the ghetto-birds that swarm the 'hood (perhaps in search of the character actors? They* seem to be multiplying** all over the mile radius, some a little crazier*** than others)
Poopa Loompa's eating habits have changed suddenly as well. Dude's interested only in cookies, (which I accidentally introduced him to) those little Gerber-cereal-things (that are delicious by the way) and meatballs (thank you whoever recommended them,the boy's diet would be in serious jeopardy if it wasn't for you.)
Little Boy Blue has also found his ability to "swat." He swats unwanted water, milk, and me when he wants to be alone. Er, not really alone because he's still clingy-man, but he doesn't want me when I want him and blah, blah... Typical boy/girl stuff.
He's also a stripper which is cute and I appreciate European openness and comfort with one's body. Nakedness is fine and fabulous and if it wasn't for the squirt-gun- pee-extravaganza that occurs in the prison of despair, I'd be all in favor. But alas, the pee everywhere thing makes it a little difficult to be supportive. I know diapers aren't exactly "cool" Archer, but come on and be a sport and WEAR ONE for I don't know, TEN MINUTES?
And beside the non-stop laundry, no sleep and no-no-no-no food protest, he's the most adorable little pirate of the snails. He is. He really, truly, totally and completely seriously is.
P.S. Thank you, Uncle Frank for babysitting so we could get air-trashed and air-rock out on our Mother's Day eve air-date.
*This dude is always the nicest guy ever. He's the neighborhood friendly guy.
**All I can think of when I look at this duder is full frontal.
***This dude is ALWAYS angry. Yelling at his dog, his kids and making an absolute scene wherever he goes. AND he wears his butt cleavage like a fashion accessory. Hello, 1993!!!!
