As evidence, on Monday and Tuesday, Avery decided that 3am is a perfect time to wake up and cry/scream for a couple of hours. Literally. AND, she is still among the living! See - rock star mom!
|If Daddy would just hold me all night, we'd all get along great.|
To add to my total rock-star momness in this regard, LAST night, we neglected to flip the switch that turns ON the outlet where the monitor is plugged in. On accident, honest! I woke up around 4:30am because I could hear Avery screaming from down the hall and through two doors. I have no idea HOW long she had been screaming. I admit, I did sprint down the hallway. She stopped crying pretty quick when I picked her up though - SEE ROCKSTAR! :D
|I was inching around my crib just like this for YEARS before she finally woke up!|
|The scene of the crime|
What else? I replaced Avery's 3-6 month wardrobe with 6-9 month clothes, despite the fact that several of my most favorite outfits are not available in the new size. I could totally have made her keep wearing the smaller clothes, but I'm trying to live up to my Rock star mom title.
|Hey - this new outfit is pretty stinking cute too Mom.|
Instead of the bulb syringe ones, it has a tube that you SUCK through (yes, with your mouth) to provide the suction to remove the snot. It's worked fabulous up to this point. NOTE TO OTHER FRIDA USERS: Do NOT use the Nose Frida for "cold" snot - it's runny. And, well, the filter on the mouthpiece is not really designed to stop liquid snot. Yes, this particular experience involved a lot of coughing and gagging on my part. See, if you'll suck your kids snot, how can you not win mom of the year?
Are you convinced that I rock as a mom yet? (Let's not forget that I made the kid sleep in a closet while on vacation: Remember When)
I'm told by my other mom friends, that this is all pretty normal days for most moms, but a lot of mommy bloggers out there don't admit this kind of stuff....makes the rest of us fail to see our total rock star qualities!
|Some rock star, I had to resort to eating my toys.|
Which example most convinced you of my rock star mom nature?
