Woohoo for two posts in ONE week! I would love to say that this is the beginning of a great new trend, but I must admit that would be a bit for me to promise at the moment!
I also must admit, sheepishly, that today was "one of those days". One of those days where I seriously question myself and my ability to be a mom. One of those days where I ask myself what the heck I think I'm doing raising a child. One of those days where I find myself wishing to be anywhere but here. I know that sounds absolutely horrible & trust me it horrifies me to actually type that out and realize that is what I was thinking and feeling but it's the cold, hard truth.
Now, before you make any snap judgements and think horrible thoughts about me let me say that I love Elliot and Miss Cupcake more than anything else in this world and would give up anything and everything for them but toddlers can be so trying on one's patience! Plus, Miss Cupcake has decided to practice her acrobatics once again so when you add in Elliot's extra clinginess & screaming Mommy was literally "touched" out. I've never been so happy to see Petey come home before! He was awesome though and took over Elliot duty, made & fed him lunch which was his first PB&J sandwish!!!
Just getting that break for a little bit was fantastic, BUT it doesn't end there. I was having incredible pain in my back so I sat down with some ice water to see if it would stop. Petey not only entertained Elliot (for the most part) but he cleaned up a bunch of the kitchen AND all the toys in the living room. He even put Elliot down for his nap & I took one of my own :) Fortunately my backache DID go away which is good otherwise I probably would have ended up in Labor & Delivery getting checked out. My labor with Elliot started in my back like that so it sort of freaked me out.
