The good: I’m done with my class I was taking, yay! My class for next semester is an actual, real live class at the college which means I will get out of the house without my barnacle once a week, double yay! Speaking of my barnacle, since we went down to one nap, she is napping for 3+ hours! It’s cool because I’ve been able to binge watch sons of anarchy, I mean do lots of housework. I end up getting kind of bored by the end, and start poking around in her room hoping she wakes up. A year ago I never could have imagined that I would be doing that since I spent sooo much time trying to get her to go the eff to sleep, and more importantly stay the eff asleep!
The bad: So we are going to spend Christmas in St. Louis with Jen’s sister and her family. I guess it’s not that bad, but I like being home for the holidays. I don’t feel like I can really indulge in my cooking, baking, and candy making like I like to do this time of year since I will be in someone else’s kitchen. Aunt Lexi is a cool chick, but her kitchen isn’t as well equipped as mine. Think it would be weird to show up with a ham from my beloved butcher, my stand mixer, silpats, and candy thermometer?
The ugly: My sweet little muffin head has turned into a real butt all of a sudden. Tantrums and screaming and throwing herself to the ground over who knows what sometimes. Part of it is a communication problem, she is right on the edge of talking and it really pisses her off when she can’t express herself. Part of it is just being a toddler I guess. She won’t stay in the shopping cart anymore which is horrible since shopping is one of my pleasures in life, even grocery shopping :). So that sucks. She flails around during diaper changes, I probably have poop on me all the time from trying to wrangle her little booty. And then there’s the totally weird stuff like how she took her pants and diaper off and tried to go to sleep in the middle of the living room naked butt and all, and had a meltdown when I tried dressing her and putting her in her crib. Really kid?? Everyone told me that since she was a difficult baby, she would be an easy toddler. I think they lied…
Hehe, she’s lucky she’s cute!
