It's almost four and Emme finally fell asleep for a nap. You might be saying, "why not let her stay awake by that point?"
She's three I know. Most three year olds don't nap. My Emme needs one. I need her to have one. Yesterday she wouldn't nap so I finally let her stay awake. BIG mistake.
The more tired Emme is the more wired she becomes. If it wasn't for my sister being here on a whim I would have lost it. But instead I saved that for today.
I'm pretty sure my neighbors are getting a kick out of watching me chase Emme down the street on a regular basis. Who needs a gym?
Oh, to have a child that could watch a movie. I just want to rake the leaves or clean the floor.
I tend to day dream about what would make life easier....
Living by my family. Getting rid of the dog. Having the perfect babysitter. A housekeeper. Being richer (everyone's day dream). Gregg being done with school. A nap.
It pointless to dwell on what I can't change and chances are...I'll feel better tomorrow.
Today though? Today was a cry it out till you feel better day. And I feel a little better.
****UPDATE let me just point out...before you start to recommend medication....that I am sleep deprived, putting a salon in my home, alone more than normal this week, and just plain stressed. I feel it deserved a cry. We were all much happier once Emme woke up from her nap and daddy came home.
