Today was one of those days where I wanted to go back to bed almost as soon as it started.
Andrew woke us up at 6AM with a wet bed (because he’d taken off his pj’s and his diaper!?!) and he never went back to sleep. He’d gone to bed late last night and really needed to sleep longer than he did. He started whining pretty much from the moment he opened his eyes.
And then it was NO NO NO all day long.
I keep wondering if I’m doing this parenting thing right…it’s so hard. But it’s supposed to be, right? Am I being too hard on him? He’s only 2 and a 1/2. Do I expect too much?
But the open defiance and laughing when he does what he knows he’s not supposed to do? I know that’s wrong.
But he’s so sweet about so many things. He’s really a great kid most of the time so do I let some of it slide?
We finally made it to our make-up swimming lesson this afternoon and Caroline had a massive blowout diaper all the way up her back. It was the worst yet.
And guess who didn’t have a clean diaper in the bag? Much less a change of clothes. Poor baby. I’ve said it many, many times over the last two months: I’m so thankful she’s a happy, easy going little girl.
Andrew takes up so much of my mom energy…am I giving her enough?
And the Rangers lost the World Series tonight so I’m sports sad on top of everything else.
But the good news today?
– The weather was beautiful! I couldn’t have asked for anything better.
– Tomorrow night Brian and I are going out without children for the first time since Caroline was born. Our 7 year anniversary is on Sunday. I’m so excited!
Well, I thought I’d come up with a third, but, hmmm….
– My new iPhone arrived this week! I upgraded from the 3S to the 4S and it’s awesome. I really wanted it for the camera and I’m loving it already.
Here are some photos from the last two weeks. Some are the 3S and some are the 4S. I can tell the difference for sure. The 4S is so less grainy and much sharper.
Caroline in pink – I’m in red. :)
See? He keeps us entertained!
Finally cool enough for coffee…
I know I’ll look back at this day soon and think it really wasn’t that bad, but for now…ooof.
