So I haven’t talked about Seth in a while. So how about an update on him? Sound good? I thought so.
For those of you who don’t know, Seth was born on September 27, 2012. This makes him 1 year, 2 months, and so many days lol.
He’s been walking since 8 ½ months. He started running not to long after that. Now he’s “faster than a speeding bullet” and hard to catch.
He loves to get into things (What kid doesn’t? lol.) Plants, food, bowls, lids, pots and pans, laundry, the litter box(Eww, eww, eww, eww!), you name it.
He has 8 teeth. He’s had these teeth for a while now and I see no signs of any others popping out soon, but all babies are different so we’ll see.
He loves potatoes; mashed, baked, fried, etc.; Daddy, mommy, Grandma, and Grandpa; Waving to complete strangers as if he’s seen them every day of his life. He loves to be held, hugged, kissed, and cuddled; watching TV, playing with cars, books and in bath time. He loves to be loud and strut his stuff, yes he’s 1 and he struts. It’s adorable! He loves to chase the cats and be around any animals that are near. He also loves to snack ALL DAY LONG!
He hates beans; refried, ham and beans beans, etc. I can’t say I blame him for this I didn’t like beans so much as a kid either. He hates when Daddy is home and isn’t playing with him. The boy LOVES his daddy! He hates that the cats won’t let him pick them up. He HATES leaving Grandma and Grandpa’s house or them leaving our house. He cries and screams and it’s sad because he’s sad, but adorable because he loves them so much. When they come over he points out the door as if to say “Ok, let’s go. I’m coming with you!” Lol.
He is definitely all boy. Tools, cars, machinery, vroom vroom sounds, wrestling with dad, action movies, sports, etc. it’s his thing.
There is rarely a day that he is shy. He flirts with the female cashiers at Walmart, waitresses, random women. It’s adorable, for now. I’m sure I’ll have a hard time when his flirting might actually result in a relationship. YOU CAN’T HAVE HIM HE’S MINE! I’m keeping him forever! Lol. I wish.
Today for the first time we gelled his hair into a fo-hawk (whatever the correct spelling) It is so adorable, but I’m wondering how long it will stay that way.
Well, I can’t think of anymore to say at this moment, but feel free to ask me a question if I forgot something that you’d like to know. (Comments below)
Hope you’re all having a great day!
Most days at work the day just drags on. I’m talking about work on Fridays at the Motel. I have people coming in and out to pay rent, fill out applications, ask questions, a couple people that come in to get their mail, people filling out leases, etc. It’s never the same amount of people. Some days I’m swamped with people all day long with only minutes in between and other days I might as well be sitting in a cemetery.
Today I didn’t have a lot of people coming in, but it still seemed to go by quickly! Thank God!!
It’s not a hard job by any means and most of the time I like working here.. Well, as much as you can like getting up out of your nice, warm bed and going somewhere besides the recliner at this “early” in the morning. My early is like10am lol. I don’t seem to function right until sometime after 10. But I get up on Fridays at 8:30 and get to the Motel around 9:45, open at 10. 5 hours of work like this really isn’t difficult most days. As long as I’m not swamped or as long as the day isn’t dragging it’s “a piece of cake” I’ve got a great boss *wink* (For those of you who don’t get that my stepdad is my boss lol) (And he is a great guy)
You know family owned and operated businesses really are great, it’s a shame that you can’t find many family businesses anymore. Just saying.
My job consists of filing things, dusting, vacuuming, taking out trash, doing dishes, doing laundry (wash, dry, fold, and put away), receiving rents, complaints, maintenance issues, signing leases, delivering mail, some computer work, trying to keep things organized (Not an easy job around here!), etc. None of it is hard. Although filling out a lease when you can’t seem to keep track of what you’re doing and having a hard time remembering things is complicated. You have to fill it out, explain it to them, have them sign, go over some rules, tell them where things are, make sure to copy their ID, get their rent and deposit, and give them the keys. It doesn’t really sound that hard, but when your head is pounding and your mind is on 50 different things it gets a lot harder. So now you know basically everything that my job consists of. Jealous? Lol. I’ve been working here since December of 2010. The longer you’re here the more things you have to learn, but there’s only so much you can do in 5 hours with people coming in and out.
I had a great day. Hubby brought me Chinese! He’s so great. He can be a butthead, but he can be really sweet too. I got to see my sister for like ½ a second lol. I got a break from my adorable, but frustrating little boy. Sure did miss him while I was working. And I felt like I accomplished quite a bit while working, but most of it is unfortunately not in noticeable things :/
Well, I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. Do something fun for me! LOL.
