As far as little boys go, he's actually pretty good about not peeing on me when I change his diaper. If he's quite beside himself, he might start to pee (happened a total of four times so far) and a couple of times he's soaked his clothes because I haven't noticed it since I cover him with a little cloth while I'm changing him and I didn't catch it with the diaper in time. He also tends to pee while he's pooping, and I figure I'd better keep at least one of those under control :)

Being a mom is a great thing. There's been a few odd side effects - sleeping only for about three hours at a time has somehow resulted in me clenching my teeth while I sleep. If I concentrate before I fall asleep, I can make myself stop, but there've been some mornings when I woke up and could hardly move my jaw.
I'm learning some things about mom-hood too. I was always impressed when I was little with how my mom used her teeth - she could open any sort of package at a moment's notice with them. I now realize why - with three kids in four years, she always had a kid in her arms and had to use her teeth as a second hand sometimes - as now do I. Other than when Levi is joggling his head around (usually when he's hungry) I can hold him with one hand and use my other to accomplish whatever small task I'm doing. Other body parts have become more useful as well - I can pick up a lot with my toes, I've discovered, slam into things with my hips, hold things with only a finger, and so on.
This is getting long and as its quite random,I'll leave off until next week!
