There’s something in my house…It’s the reason why it’s Dec 1st & I still don’t have an advent calendar finished…It’s also why my husband & I had to cancel our special date to go see Michael Buble last night. We feared we’d come home to find the babysitter huddled in the corner of a dark bathroom mumbling some incoherency about the “bu-bu-buhbaby, wuh, won’t, st-t-t-t-t-top CRYING!”And it’s also why Daddy is cooking Mommy’s yummy enchilada recipe instead of Mommy…It’s my…
Don’t be deceived, she’s a cunning little temptress.I love my kids but they both seem to go through this awful phase where they scream their heads off EVERY SINGLE EVENING. My husband lovingly said during one of these fits that we make awesome toddlers but “bum babies”. Hmph. Don’t know what to say about that one, there are points where they make me want to check out their warranty.
I have heard other parents talk about this, they call it “the witching hour”. I do have to give Sophie some credit though, she desperately wants to be the happiest baby on earth. Really she does. So many times she’ll be screaming her head off & then she’ll look up at you & smile through her red, puffy, teary eyes. “I love you guys, I swear I’m happy…I just don’t know why I’m so upset?! Wahhhh!”
So that’s why you haven’t heard from me lately, it’s also why I didn’t get much sewing done over Thanksgiving. Peter & I are really the only ones who can comfort her. (or deal with the screaming) But I’m hopeful, from what I’ve read this phase only lasts until 3 or 4 mths & Sophie’s 3 & a 1/2 months. I’m so excited to get back on the blog bandwagon, I really miss this little time for myself.
Don’t feel too bad for me though, the evenings are hard but other than that we’re really having a blast with our little girls. I never did show you their Halloween costumes…And Thanksgiving was so much fun…(a certain father of my children thought it’d be funny to teach Samster to give a big lick when someone asks her for a kiss. Unfortunately that neat little trick is also what she did when asked to kiss her sister for our Christmas card photo)
So here’s the sewing calendar goal, I’ve come too far to give up now!
*Finish all pockets today
*Embroider all numbers tomorrow
*Assemble house on Friday & give Sam 3 days worth of candy to ease guilt about not having calendar ready on Dec 1st
*Take several weekend naps
