2. Looked down at my son proudly when Equis sat on a black booster seat through the entire film, The Lorax, even though his light weight couldn't completely hold down the movie theater seat.
3. Excitedly thanked a salesperson for giving me an extra discount on a Brother printer after using a Rewards coupon - A $99 printer was suddenly $55! And, boy, have I really needed that printer for my Gotham Writer's Memoir Workshop!
4. Angrily slammed the bathroom door. After watching number ten in Equis' new Reality series called "Extra Large Tantrums for No Reason or Every Reason in the World." Yes, the bathroom is my refuge.
5. Chased two little boys around a huge park... up stairs, down slides and across bridges. Can you say EXHAUSTING? The plus? Besides them having SO MUCH fun, they were exhausted too.
7. Spent hours upon hours and days upon days revising a memoir workshop piece about Equis' conception and delivery. The process was agonizing and yet, oh-so-rewarding.
8. Blew bubbles in the Lower East Side and Battery Park City. The result was the same in both places: kids ran and jumped, trying to pop the bubbles, and asked if they could blow some bubbles too. Of course, they could. Bubbles have always been fascinating to me, but I've learned that blowing them can also be mighty therapeutic.
9. Got caught in the entrance to my building, the elevator threshold and my apartment door because I had way too many plastic bags from shopping at Fine Fare and Babies 'R' Us hanging off the back of Equis' stroller. This scenario recurs at least twice a week.
10. Played with Equis and his shape-sorter cube and stacking cups. He gets better at them every day!
12. Washed several loads of laundry - whites, darks, baby clothes - and folded them all over a few hours. Headed back upstairs and wondered, "Why are there still so many dirty clothes left over?"
13. Met my parents in the lobby of my building to pick up food they'd bought for Equis. The look of joy on my son's face when he saw them was priceless. Also the way he ran away from their hugs and kisses to explore the mailboxes.
14. Slept soundly on my grandmother's couch once Equis finally stopped hysterically fighting sleep and succumbed to dreaming in his play yard. Grandma recently had a mild stroke and can no longer be left alone, but she can still make awesome bedtime coffee!
15. Gratefully accepted my sister's offer to give Equis a bath. Just HOW does he get yogurt on his feet and rice in his hair?
