I am Mom. I am tired.  

Sunday, March 9, 2008

This weekend Roland hurt his back and has been very sore and uncomfortable. Michelle isn't feeling great either. So, I've been trying to entertain Paige all weekend. I do have some pictures of a fun project that we did, but I'm too tired to work on posting them right now. Let's just go for cute comments, ok?

Yesterday Paige put a tiara on my head and said, "I command you, Princess Momma!" Roland and I thought that was too funny. Then she wanted me to do the same for her. So I put the tiara on her head and commanded her Princess Paige Girl.

Today in the bath tub, Paige said, "Momma, I want some scream." What?! I looked toward where she was looking - at Daddy's shaving cream! I often let her play with shaving cream in the bath tub, so I said, "oh, you want some shaving cream!" (You know, sometimes I don't like to correct her - I think her way is cuter.)

Today we had quite the temper tantrum. Lately she's been putting EVERYTHING in her mouth. I think it is partially because I'm slowly trying to ween her off of her pacifier, and also because she knows it gets to me. So this morning we were doing a puzzle, and she put a piece in her mouth and looked at me. I told her to take it out, and that if she put it in her mouth again, I was going to take the puzzle away. Next thing I know, she's sitting with her head practically on the floor, with a piece of puzzle in her mouth - all hunched over so I "couldn't see her" and with a mischievous look on her face because she knows I'm mad. I had to tell her, "ok, I'm taking the puzzle away." I pack it up and she is screaming. I eventually have to take her down and put her in bed, and she's freaking out. Much later, I hear a little voice, "Momma? I'm sorry about the puzzle piece. I won't put it in my mouth again." I told her it was ok, and I loved her, and figured I'd done a good job. Fast forward to after her bath when I am juggling a bunch of things and put her comb in my mouth. "Momma, you shouldn't put the comb in your mouth. It isn't food." Damn. Sometimes they learn the lesson too well! But I guess that means I made an impression today. That's good, right? So why am I so worn out??

    I wonder if I put a tiara on my head and command people . . . will they listen? So worth the effort.
