Before I signed off tonight....

I just had to share this with you guys out in cyber land.  We had a perfect day today...did we go to the beach and sip non-alcoholic margaritas?  um no, we had work, rushing to the Dr.'s office and the regular routine, however today was the first day there was NO tantrum.at.all.none! 

I just don't know what to do with myself.  I'm reliving the day.  I usually hear a symphony of whining and tantrum on the car ride home from work/daycare.  Part of it is hunger and sometimes the snack that I bring doesn't seem to be what she wanted, part of it is that sometimes she's not in the mood for the water bottle or sippy cup or juice box I have for her, sometimes she's just tired and needs to vent on the way home. 

Next, I usually have a hard time right before dinner and if I'm not fast or careful, I can get meltdowns there.  And Lordy, I usually have a major meltdown sometime during bath time....if it's not in the bath, it's right after it and sometimes I'm just tired of the daily crying/tantrum. 

If something doesn't go the way she thinks it should go, there is major meltdown (e.g. last weekend it was too cold for one outfit I tried on for church, so decided to change it....oh my.  It was a rough morning for a while because the world ended when I changed her dress)

For no good reason, today was different.  She was entertained on the way home in the car with her "books", we went to a Dr. appt. for her (which I thought was going to mess with her schedule) and she took it in stride, we went home and I did a quickie meal....sandwich and fruit and she loved it, she did cry a bit when I needed to put an object to "rest" after being told not to do something and a warning....however it didn't last more than a minute so that doesn't count.  There was no after the bath meltdown..

This has been a monumental day.  I enjoyed it, still am enjoying the feeling from it.  Wow....a drama free day!  I just am quite ecstatic that it happened.  And to top off the day...when I had the computer (itunes) on with her pre-bed songs on....during one song when I sing "I love you" she jargoned most of "I love you" with the same inflection back to me. 

All this to say....I am in 7th heaven.  I don't know if this day can be repeated or what was up, however, I will have this day as a lovely memory.  No matter what, I love my kid to death, just wanted to document this day!  Good night!

Those days always seem to come when we need them to refresh us.
