It’s been such a long day and it’s only 6:30 pm.
With both kids sick (yes, Nathan, has “it” now too), I am completely worn out.
Emily has been a complete bear and I honestly don’t know how I can handle another day of her acting like this. I miss my sweet little helpful girl. Please come back wherever you are!
I didn’t get as much sleep as normal (and as I needed) last night because Emily woke me up at 3 am, 5 am, and 7 am crying – no screaming – for Daddy. “MOM! WANT DADDY! WHERE DADDY AT!?!!!!” Each time, I would stumble to her room, tuck her back into bed, and explain that Daddy is in Alabama for work and he will be home in a couple days. She would nod ok and I would head back to bed, praying that that was the last time I would have to get up with her.
Today, Emily has:
*thrown her cereal on the floor – milk and all – because Nathan made her mad over something. (He really didn’t do anything but she has been in a mood)
*thrown a huge tantrum after flinging her Cheez-its out of her snack cup onto my clean kitchen floor because I accidentally gave her Nathan’s blue snack cup lid instead of her purple lid. (Oh the absolute horror!)
*only taken a very short 45 minute nap (normally she sleeps for 1.5 hours and now that she’s sick she needs the sleep even more. And so does MOM!)
*throwing her crayons all over the floor because I told her she couldn’t have Nathan’s markers but could use her own crayons. Then a major tantrum when I made her pick them up because Abby (our pug) will eat them.
*picked many fights with Nathan – everything from stealing his markers to ripping his paper to just smacking him
*taken the bathroom stool into my kitchen pantry, then stacking a box on top of that so she could reach the box of Wheat Thins and graham crackers. After which she proceeded to bring said boxes into the living room and dumping their entire contents onto my couch and then my floor where she enjoyed stomping all over the cracker bits and making further messes.
And that was just some of the results of my little girl’s lovely mood today. Throw in a lot more naughtiness and disobedience and I’ve had just a splendid day. She’s not feeling great, but she’s also not terribly sick either. I think this was the result of feeling a little icky and just generally acting out because she missed Daddy & just felt like being naughty. *sigh*
Nathan has been good today, poor guy just doesn’t feel well.
I am so worn out. I miss Nate, I hope he is able to come home on Thursday night…
