Tigers Game and More

Well, Tim and Jennifer were a definite lifesaver for me and Antonio on Thursday night. They took Tatum since I was sick and Antonio had just had his surgery, so I got to sleep and get some much needed rest. Then on Friday morning Jennifer took Tatum to daycare, so I took a sick day Friday and rested some more until I had to pick up Tatum. I didn't have much of a fever on Friday and I felt much better. I picked up Tatum and we all hung out at home and went to bed early.

On Saturday, Antonio said he was feeling good enough to stay at home alone for a while so me, Tatum, Ashley, Coleman, and Jennifer all decided to go to the Tigers football game. It was homecoming, so we hated to miss it.

Here is a picture of Tatum and Coleman loaded up in the car ready to go. Notice their matching carseats?

This is Ashley and Jennifer at the game.

We sat below my bro-in-law, sister(I think we caught Laurie in the middle of cheering?), and neices(Mckayla is not pictured 'cause she was too busy watching the game and cheering)
Next is Jennifer giving Tatum a sucker for the first time.
Needless to say, Tatum LOVED the sucker. Check out her little tongue.
A Memphis Tigers game wouldn't be complete unless Elvis showed up, and well, he did!

Tatum wouldn't take a nap before the game, so she got so tired during the game. I couldn't do anything to please her so she would go to sleep, but as you can see below, Jennifer has the magic touch. I am her mom and she won't do this when I hold her.....not fair!
I thought this was a cute pic of Ashley and Coleman.
Finally, skip to today. I dropped Tatum off at daycare and went to work. Her class was having snacktime at the table when we got there, so I put Tatum down and Ms. Carol put Tatum in her chair at the table and gave her milk. Tatum sat up at the table like a big girl and drank her milk and ate a snack. It was too cute and I was surprised she sat up there without trying to get down or anything.
When I went to pick her up, she was SCREAMING and I didn't know why. I could hear her before I even walked in her room. Her teacher was holding her and giving her lots of attention, but she was still screaming. I picked her up KNOWING she would stop, but she didnt. I put her in the car and gave her a pacifier KNOWING again that she would stop, but she didnt. I figured she was tired and would fall asleep on the way home, but once again, no luck on that one. So, the whole way home, I kept thinking that it was great birth control when she acts like that(which is not too often), but I couldn't help but giggle a bit. I turned up my music a little and just sang a little louder on the way home. Don't think I am a bad mom, just think I am a mom learning to cope with "not so happy" Tatum. I would rather sing over her than get in a bad mood and frustrated by it. Anyway, I know lots of you guys out there think that Tatum is a pure angel, and she is most of the time, but I bet you have never seen her like this!?!?!? Enjoy the video!
