(cue the music)

So I hope you have the music playing as you read, thanks for playing along...

I've got a serious problem over here.

That adorable boy?
The one who is about to turn one in a few weeks?
The one who has grown about 14 pounds of hair in recent days?
The one who brings love, laughter, copious snot and a newfound joy I've never known?

Yea, that one. The BHB.

He bites!!

It's brand new today. I'm kinda freakin' out.

You: Um, actually Jane, I know for a fact he's bitten you before, you whined talked about it here.

Me: No!...I mean, yes, you're right. He has bitten me in the past, but what I'm talking about now is the ole 'I've got him in my arms and the exposed tank top shoulder get's a chomp taken out of it', or the 'boy my neckline hem thing must look delicious but oops he got which a nice hunk of flesh out of the same milk providing mechanism but from a different angle'.

You: Welcome to motherhood.

Me: Dammit! I knew you were going to say that.

I mean, I know about the two year olds who bite. I know about the terrible terrible two's and while I was NOT judging you momma's who have the biters I was secretly, smugly convinced that my little angel would never bite me (he would love me too much) and while I'm sure your kid loves you...Uhm, well, I got nothing for ya, but I just KNEW it wasn't going to happen to me.

And here I am! And he's only not even one.
Not even one.

Slump. Sigh.

So how am I supposed to deal with this dear Momma's? How do I not drop him? I almost did tonight, I was so surprised when the sharp pain ripped through my consciousness, my hands unconsciously let go. Yes, I think it was a release and catch program, thank god for my cat-like reflexes. I have a very difficult time with gravity, the benefit is that because I drop crap all of the time, I'm really good at re-catching it. Which I did.

So I look forward to hearing your thoughts. In the meantime, I'll leave you with a few of the images that were captured tonight of the danger lurking in the water.

Don't be fooled by the sweet smile...

check it out! all of that hair even looks like a dorsal fin!

Needing a bigger boat,
