The High Points
First and foremost, Dr. Merideth Grey cannot be dead. After all, the show is called Grey’s Anatomy. What are they going to do, have her walk around as a ghost for the next several seasons? Stupid.
That being said, let’s move on.
A couple of days ago I thought I would pick a day and keep a log of everything Tank Boy does so that, one day when he’s older, I can hopefully send him on The World’s Most Scenic Guilt Trip. I decided that would be too difficult and too tedious. For example:
6:30 a.m. — Tank Boy wakes up. Slams his door on the way out of his room, waking up Midge.
6:32 a.m. — Tank Boy is screaming and thrashing, trying to pinch me and kick me, because I am changing his diaper.
6:35 a.m. — Diaper change done. Tank Boy just threw chair across the room because he’s mad that I changed his diaper.
6:40 a.m. — Tank Boy sits in his chair for breakfast. Screams that he doesn’t want his cup. I take it and, as I’m putting it in the fridge, he screams that he does want it. I Tell him to get it himself. Screams some more
6:42 a.m. — Realizing that I won’t respond to his screaming he knocks his breakfast on the floor, toddles over to the fridge grabbing random object off the counter on the way. Hurls random object across the room, then gets his cup.
6:43 a.m. — Tank Boy standing in the corner for first time of the day. I’m am quickly leaving room. Fleeing temptation. To strangle him.
Oh, to be sure, there would be good parts to the day as well. You know, the times when he snuggles on my lap and asks me to sing songs, and then starts kneading my boobs.
Anyway, I don’t have the time, energy or drive to actually record an entire day of his antics. So, instead, for your viewing pleasure (unless your a photo critic) I have recorded some of the high points.
Elevated Places From Which I Have Recently Extracted Tank Boy:
The counter/dishwasher The piano
The dining room table
Family room T.V. (on top) Rec room T.V. (on counter top next to television)
And what have we learned from all of this? That, yes, our rec room is ugly. It’s on the To Do List, along with the kitchen. Someday.
And George, if you’re out there, Tewt the Newt says hello.
