Before I signed off tonight....
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!
