|Put down that stupid camera, NOW.|
She rotated through her toys when we got home, even her new jumperoo, but nothing kept her happy for more than a few minutes.
|Ok. This is fun. For about 5 minutes.|
|I have not forgotten that I am unhappy with you.|
My husband called at 5:30 to say he was going to happy hour - despite the screaming baby in the background. I jokingly told him not to come home too late or he'd come home to a carcass instead of a daughter. He laughed and laughed. I then clarified, that I was, of course joking about the carcass bit. He didn't come home until 7pm. My friend Amy got there before he did and witnessed my tears. I had determined that since I was at my wits end with Avery that day, obviously I was a terrible mother, yadda, yadda, yadda.
It was one of those days where I really wanted to look into daycare options and knew that I absolutely HAD to go back to work.
Today, for maybe the second time in her life, Avery slept in until 7:00am. She woke up happy and giggly. Around 8:30am, I started getting everything ready because I intended to go to a spin class at the gym, and get there early enough to warm up on the stair climber.
I dropped her off at the kids area, warmed up on the stair climber and had an absolutely kick butt spin class. I picked her up from the kids area, she was happy and smiling. I was happy and smiling. We played until her afternoon nap.
|Do it again Mommy, do it again!|
I am the world's best mother ever.
What a difference a day makes, huh???
How do you turn around those days when absolutely everything in the world is going wrong and you're ready to cry at every turn?
For me - I think it was my Relay Around Columbus team meeting that night. The people on my relay team are really just flat awesome.
How do you keep the awesomeness going those days when everything is going right???
