I don't feel like yelling this right now (DD just finished nursing and has run off to DH
) but I'd like to say two things:
PLEASE, PLEASE PLAY by YOURSELF for FIVE minutes. FIVE minutes. That's all I'm asking . . . NO, you don't need to nurse or watch TV . . .you REALLY are capable of entertaining yourself for FIVE minues. (I especially wanted to yell this after Christmas-- even with new toys she wanted to nurse constantly!)
GO TO SLEEP. I'll give you $50 if you go to sleep! Note: In a moment that I lost it a few weeks ago, I really did yell the go to sleep part
(several times) but I've been known to offer her the $50 as a way of saving my sanity . . . the humor helps. She's never accepted, though!
