no going to minot after all -- the wee oskar has the beginning of an ear infection, so traveling isn't the best idea for him. or us. or anyone on that plane.

so, so tired. will have to write more later when i'm not ready to pass out.

a momont to breathe ...

sitting on the bed, the boy has fallen asleep while leaning against me post bath.
let me explain the past 20 minutes...

1. boy spits up a HUGE amount of liquid.
2. i clean boy up. he then makes a HUGE diaper situation, most of which -- b/c of how he was sitting in my lap -- squirts out the back.
3. i clean the boy up.
4. boy screams, indicating that, yes, i DID forget to put the butt-cream on his diaper rash, and his urine hurts it,
5. i remove diaper and while squeezing nearly-empty tube onto my funger..
6. boy pees all over his legs and my foot.
7. i put water in his lil' tubby -- but too much, b/c once i put boy into tub, water comes out by the corners (note: get better baby tub) of the damn thing.
8. i take boy out of tub and do-over tub process.
9. i clean boy up.

now he is snoozing.

am done with work for the week -- actually going back to ND this weekend for a couple o' days... anyone have ant tips for flying with an infant?
