rough couple of days..

for starters....

the babes is teething.
which, I'm embarrassed to say
gets me down.
She is such a content baby that after
a couple of days of a very 
moody baby, 
I turned to the hubs with my arms in the air
at a loss. 
He suggested teething.
Once the words came out of his mouth
I was certain that was it!
People have said forever that she must
be teething because
-she gnaws on anything and everything
-drool master to infinity and beyond
(yeah...that sums it up)

and THEN...

tragic story.
I had been cooped up in the apartment all day
and was slightly blue and desperately
needing groceries.
the babes was crabby so I hadn't felt like dragging her 
to the store during the day.
SO Isaac came up with an ingenious idea
when he got home from work.
He hang with the babes...while I go to the store.
Easy enough.
I went to the store. On my way back, I call Isaac
he answers, 
Isaac-Al I'm not sure if you can hear me
but...I can't hear you. My phone 
may be broken.
(we bought I phones a couple months ago)
Me- too upset (sad) to even really talk.

When I got home he told me the story. 
We have a had a puj tub 
that we bathed Reagan in until she was 6 months.
So very recently I have been bathing
her in the tub.
Also very recently she has been sitting up.
So for about a week I have let her sit up in the tub.
Well Isaac being a total DOLL
decides to give her a bath while I'm out so she is all
ready to go to bed when I get home.
(This was his first time in the grown up tub)
and naturally it made him very nervous.
But he had watched me and he is a big boy and knew he could handle it.
he decides to take a picture for mom 
and just as he is sending it Reagan tips to the side and slides and ends up falling
face first in the water. (a parent's nightmare)
so in turn Isaac tosses the phone and grabs baby girl.
He takes her to the rug and makes sure she's okay.
and she is totally fine!
Then he thinks about the phone (like a GREAT parent)!!!
Which had been sitting at the bottom of the tub....................................

after checking out the phone, most functions worked fine...
-he was able to play a game (the man's most treasured feature)
-send texts...
-basically any app on the phone was working but...
to make phone calls, the person on the other line could hear him fine...but to hear them he had to turn it to speaker! LAME. like you always want people hearing your phone calls. NOT
oh...and the music wasn't working. 
wait what the the main reasons for an I phone. Oh yeah...the phone...and the music.
I was soooo bugged. Ashamedly more bugged than maybe I have ever
been in my life. NOT at Isaac, quite the opposite.
I was sooo grumpy that my hubs that
works he bum off for our little family,
day in 
and day out, 
and HE has HIS nice thing ruined.
And it happened to be WHILE he was trying to be good to me
and offer for me to get out of the house for a bit
AND give her a bath.
Then on top of everything else, he was being SO great about it.
actually apologizing to me for upsetting me...

this is why I do not deserve the guy.

BUUUUUUUT....happy ending.
after a night sitting in a bowl of rice,
today all is well and the phone has recovered.
talk about a blessing.

I really try not to be dramatic.
And more importantly worldly. It is a phone for crying out loud!
But it makes the guy happy.
Which in turn makes me a happy girl.
