Hunter had a good day!

I write such bad things about Hunter so much on here, that I am actually pleased to write that Hunter had a great day today! I don't expect it tomorrow, but today was great. I never thought I would ever achieve this but....HE PLAYED BY HIMSELF ALL DAY!
Now for those of you who don't get why that is so great, have you ever had a two year old follow you around the house and torment you at every turn until you play with him? I put something away, he takes it out. I try to hang up pictures, he takes my hammer, I take a shower with a two year old's hands and nose pressed up against the glass watching my every move (I tried to lock him out today and he spent the whole time banging on the door shouting at me to let him in. I didn't have a relaxing shower that way either.), ect, ect, ect. I don't want to hear, "OH, DON'T YOU WANNA PLAY WITH MY TRAIN?!" ever again, though I know I will a million more times. I'm sick of his trains, or "chuggas" as he often calls them. He has followed me constantly from the day I got home from the hospital and Ainsley is 2 months old now. This was the first day where I quietly left the room, and he kept playing. It was beautiful.
Not that I don't enjoy my son. The other day, I blew bubbles with him, played in the kiddy pool, and then we quietly sat on our front porch eating popsicles and watching the airplanes fly into the airport (we have a direct view of the flight approach from our house.) At the time, I thought, this the best, and why I became a Mom. We had so much fun. But most days I have things to do, and can't be entertaining him all day. He is soooo persistant and stubborn about not letting me out of his sight in another room. I leave him and usually he cries for me or freaks out. He should be a Daddy's boy I think.
