This was the question I was asked by my 2 1/2-year-old yesterday thru her historical tears. And the answer was NO I was not happy. Tuesday started out to be a good day. Got up early got ready for bible study and to take Savannah to pre-school. We had a good morning she was happy to go to school it was going to be a great day! After dropping her off at school I headed to bible study. Today was my day to lead. Now why I volunteered for this I do not know. Well I do know. I am trying to step out of my comfort zone and do something I am not comfortable doing. Speaking in front of people is NOT something I do well or really enjoy. Unless of course we are talking about kids then I’m right in there. But leading the conversation ugh not my strong point. So off to bible study I went and it went ok. I think I should have prepared better but that’s the thing I really didn’t know how to prepare for this. So I just kinda winged it. Maybe I will get better with time. So after that was done I headed to pick up priss. She had a great day at pre-school so I thought it would be a good idea to stop at the park on the way out and let her play for a little while before nap. What better way to kill and hour. So I called my friend Heather, whose son Adam goes to pre-school with Savannah and they also share a swim class together, and told her we would be hanging out if they wanted to stop by and they did. It started out great and it seemed that everyone else had the same idea we did because the playground became full quickly . Savannah was playing having a good time then someone brings candy and that is what the whole focus becomes and if it wasn’t that it was wanting to do something someone else was doing. Typical 2-year-old. So needless to say we left. Kicking and screaming. UGH. Yes I had THAT child. Lord help me. I got her in the car and tried to explain to her that when she acts this way she will have to leave. Mommy doesn’t play that. lol. She cried all the way home. At one point she screamed so loud I was in shock.. She had NEVER done this before. So I turned up the radio and practiced my yoga breathing. I knew that yoga would come in handy. So we got home and she went straight to bed. And she was out like a light. So the lesson learned here was no more play ground after pre-school. So after nap she wanted to go to the play ground again and being the good mommy that I am we headed out. She was a little better this time and on the way home I called daddy to see what time he would be home because mommy definitely needed a break. He met me at the house and he and Savannah took off to have dinner and see his parents. I sat at home and stalked my local obsession Matilda Jane website to see if they would be releasing anything new and made Valentine cards for Savannah’s Class.
This is our first Valentine’s project and I was so excited to find such a cute idea. Hope the class likes them. Savannah and daddy arrived shortly after I finished and then it was a cry fest again. Didn’t want to take a shower, didn’t want to brush her teeth, didn’t want to potty, didn’t want to do anything..ARGGGGGGG and thru her tears I hear ” mommy are you happy”? No Savannah mommy is NOT happy we try to do everything for you to make you happy and typically you make me happy but today is not one of them. So off to bed she went. Night Night.
Needless to say she didn’t sleep very well and of course as mad as she get’s at me I’m always the go to in the middle of the night. MOMMY… and of course I go to. Between the dogs and her it was a long night.
Morning came and I received a text from Miss Mercy NOT going to be here today.. NOOOOOOOO.. So I’m thinking no yoga today but daddy was sweet and stayed with priss for me to go. YAY daddy. After yoga we headed to swim class. So far the morning is going GREAT!! Swim class with Mr. Stewart only last 30min so we get there with 10min to spare get ready and head to the pool. We are doing our little stations and Savannah say’s something about Poop. OH LAWD nooooo not in the pool they will have to shut the whole thing down. So we jump out run to the bathroom and thank goodness no poop in swim diaper. Sit her up on the potty and she poops. YAYAYAY.. After she finishes I look at her with a big huge smile on my face and say ” This makes mommy VERY happy” praise praise praise. You can have whatever you want!!! We head back to the pool and finished out our class. After swim we went to lunch at Chic-Fil-A with Miss Heather & Adam it was great! After lunch we headed to their house for a little play time. I have really enjoyed getting to know Heather and Adam. They are such sweet people and I really love when Adam calls me Miss Brandi. lol
After our visit we head home for nap she slept for 2 1/2 hour’s (thanks swim class & Adam) then we hung out till daddy got home then bed time. Can’t wait to see wheat tomorrow holds. Night
