Do you make them feel good and say he’s an angel? That he naps like a champ? That he doesn’t scream for hours a day? How about how he refuses to sit in any one of the thousands of dollars in baby gear you’ve purchased? Or, better yet, how he shrieks if you try to rock him instead of swaying back and forth?
Real talk, ya dig?
I could have answered with any one of those statements, but I didn’t. I surprised myself with a forced smile (my attempt to brighten up my dull, sleep deprived eyes) and went with, “all babies are good in their own way.” To which she replied, “at least he isn’t colicky.”
Yes, at least he isn’t colicky. Color me fortunate.
So, I rock my extra cuddly baby as I write about my extra cuddly baby. With my thumbs, mind you. And anyone who knows me knows I have a gimp toe thumb. Which is why 7 inches is plenty big enough. (That’s what she said!)
But you know what I’ve come to realize? Seeing how Maverick is my second child, I was aware I wouldn’t sleep for months. I knew going into this that he would cry and need me for everything. I get it. That’s what happens when you pop out a baby. What I wasn’t prepared for was my toddler’s demands on top of that. I find myself riddled with mom guilt as I hand him the tablet so he can watch Lightning McQueen. Or when later doesn’t happen. Or when his nap snuggles are cut short because his brother woke up. Or when there isn’t enough room in the recliner for him to sit with me as I feed Maverick.
The struggle, guys! The struggle.
We might gravitate towards Intel Tablets, but you know I don’t like to endorse technology until I have used it for more than a minute. Shoooott… you can find unboxing specs any ole place.
Just know that it was introduced in the summer of 2014. It looks to be priced around $150, and can come in fun colors like yellow, red, and what looks like aqua. I dig the look but will it hold up to hours of videos and rocking back and forth?
Find out next time on Talk Nerdy to Me! <Said in my best TV person voice.>
Okay, so I’m lame. And I watch a lot of TV. And most of the time things sound better in my head because, mannerisms. You don’t get the full effect via text. Now, if only I could find a tablet that helps me get more showers in so I can film more videos.. hmm.
