Oh man, what a day.
This post is for everyone who frequents this blog and may be under the impression that my bubba is constantly happy 24/7.
Bubba’s dad wont like this one – he hates any photo where she isn’t smiling, especially if she’s upset. But this one pretty much sums up my day today.
Bubba has been very moody lately. And by moody, I do mean non-stop grizzling, fighting sleep, just generally challenging. Today she got up at 7:30 am and didn’t finally FINALLY fall asleep again until 4:30 pm. She grizzled and grumped and screamed all day. There were tears – and not just from bubba.
It’s now 6:45 pm and she’s still asleep so I don’t know if she will sleep for the night now or wake up at some strange hour.
Let’s just say today was one to put on the “forget” pile.
I do have to finish with a funny story though… At 4:30 pm, after a big screaming session and a desperate vent phone call to my partner, I gave her a muesli bar and sat her on my lap. She started eating it and then all of a sudden fell back against my arm with her eyes closed. She was practically asleep straight away… but her arm was still going up to her mouth and eating the muesli bar!! After how I was feeling all day, I couldn’t believe I was laughing but it was so funny! Oh good lord, this parenting thing’s a caper, isn’t it?!
