All black kind of day…

 So, I mentioned in yesterdays post that Maya had been a bit of a butt.  Well, the more I thought about it today, the more I realized that-

A) She hadn’t been that big of a butt.  She really never is… Did she want to run around the house in her diaper for an hour longer than I wanted her to?  Yes.  Did she want to make a mess out of things I had just put away?  Yes.  Did she cry for a few minutes when I told her she had to put some clothes on so we could go play outside?  Yes.  Did she demand to wear a “Princess dress” instead of the original outfit I wanted to put on her.  Yes.  Was any of that really that bad?  No.  Which brings me to…

B) It was me who was being the butt.  Lack of sleep and a few other things contributed to my mood/lack of patience, but basically she was mirroring my attitude!  And I needed an attitude adjustment.  For her sake as much as my own.  She is inherently happy, which I absolutely love and am grateful for.  Which I need to remember and not take for granted.

C) This, I honestly should have known.  She woke up the next morning with a hacking cough.  Then when she woke up from her afternoon nap, she had a 102 temperature, so…mother of the year?  Not going to me. :{

I absolutely LOVE that I get to stay home with her and hang out with her.  She makes me laugh, makes me feel more love that I ever knew possible, and really is my little buddy.   All that said, we need a break from each other sometimes.  My parents were kind enough to offer to hang out with her for a few hours while I went and ran errands by myself.  It was exactly what we both needed.

My mom got these next few pictures of me and of me and Maya when I dropped her off.Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-1 Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-2 Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-3 Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-4 Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-5I only got a couple of her as we were walking over to my parents house, because she is on a mission to get to Meme and BOPO’s once she knows that’s where we are going 🙂 Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-6 Blog Doma Leather Jacket DL1961 Amanda Born Booties-7   On me…
