Days like this...

make me a little crazy. Does anyone else have them?? Of course you do, even if you don't admit it. Lauryn and I were just grating on each other's nerves all afternoon. I know that I should just take a deep breath and remember that she is 3 and I'm not, but sometimes I forget :-) Even though she only likes me to put her to bed, I asked Brian to do it tonight. I told Lauryn that it was because we had a rough day and I thought that we could maybe use a break from each other. She actually took that rather well, it is usually a fight if Brian wants to put her to bed and I'm at home. So, I got the sweet hug (and an extra kiss) and off she went. Sometimes that last 5 minutes of her deciding which bedtime songs she would like is 5 minutes too many. I love my sweet girl, but sometimes long for the days when I would give her a kiss, say goodnight, and close the door.

On a completely different note, I'm getting really excited to get the new siding on the house!!! Only one more month of UGLY dark brown paint and rotting siding. :-) Now I'm off to curl up with a book that is purely for fun and maybe a little bedtime snack!

Tomorrow is a new day and Brian's off work...so I get to go and get a pedicure just in time for Easter Sunday and my cute new sandals :-)

Thanks for sharing this post. I sometimes feel like I am the only one in the bloggie world that gets super fustrasted with my 3 year old. ALthough, I know I am not. Sometimes other bloggers seem to leave that out and every thing is smooth! I know that I need to not worry or compare and just go with it because we all have those days. EVERYONE! Thanks
