Okay, so today, has been an interesting day. K was up at 4-5am this morning after only about 5.5 hours of sleep and both DH and I slept through our alarms, so V didn't go to daycare. K refused to nap in the morning, despite his early wake-up and V only slept like an hour at naptime.
We watched some TV, did some colouring, went to the park, we made some muffins, we played cars, read stories, you know, all the regular daytime stuff. DH is working nights, so I just did dinner and bedtime by myself, which is always stressful. K refused to be put down and cried the whole time I was getting V to sleep, V tried some of his nightime antics, but they are now both sleeping(well K is in my lap, but asleep, so I'll take it) and I'm embracing the quiet because, that was the one thing that got my nerves today, the constant chatter!
V doesn't stop talking, EVER!!! It's non stop, all day long. He's very verbal, has a great vocabulary, surprises me everyday with all the new words and sayings he's aquired. But there are times when I wish the kid would shut the eff up!
Like during storytime, he's all like "Hey Ma, what's that?" "Hey Ma, look at his feet." "Hey Ma, it's an owl! Hoo!Hoo!" "Hey Ma, doggy, chien. Woof" Or the constant barrage of questions, What are you doing? What's that? Who's that man? Where's the train/firetruck/police car/tractor?
It makes me crazy! Am I am bad mom? Is that bad to say? I can't wait for K to start talking so they can chatter together and leave me alone
But knowing my kids they will both me vying for my attention and there will be two little voices going "Hey Ma!"
Feels good to get that out....where's the wine?
