Well, we survived

It wasn't pretty, but we survived yesterday. Paige was very cranky, and spent some good quality time sitting by herself in the bathroom. (Works better than her room since it has so many toys.) Paige decided to play on my rocking chair, which is usually fine. But she started to get very rough with trying to stand and jump from it while it was rocking. I kept telling her to stop or she would get hurt. Well, Mommy caught her. And now I have a really nasty bruise that covers most of my pinky on my right hand. Really not pretty.

She didn't take a nap at nap time. We could hear her playing. We each went in once, and put her back down. About an hour into what is usually a 2 hour nap, she called for Daddy. She had wet the bed. Ronnie showered her off while I changed the sheets. That one I don't get since she pottied just before nap time.

Ronnie still wanted to do something special with just the 2 of them. He packed her up and headed to the Exploreum. She loves it there. So much so that she didn't want to stop playing to go potty. She peed on herself. Ronnie had repeatedly tried to get her to potty, and she refused. As a result, she lost TV privileges yesterday afternoon and evening. They had to leave early to come home & get cleaned up. (Paper towels in the mens room doesn't really do much.)

She argued & acted up more during the afternoon. She pretty much refused to eat dinner. We refuse to cook 2 meals, so she may have gone to bed hungry. (And it was her fave meal anyway- fish, cous cous & green beans.) We did put her down to bed early also. Usually bedtime is 7:45. Last night we put her down at 7:15. We didn't hear a peep from her. She was so tired she was instantly asleep.

Congratulations on getting through--here's hoping she woke up on the right side of the bed today.
