well, I am NOT superwoman today! I was miserable and sick and I had my housecleaner come tonight- wow, she did a beautiful job, I finally feel CLEAN! What a nice way to start the week!
barf, I just ate a huge peice of cake. woops.
So I think I forgot to mention last week, EVANGELINE GOT A TOOTH! woo hoo, actually she got two! perhaps a reason to all that nightwaking- and I should correct myself about the magical baby part- she's only magical when I put her down for naps or night, not in sleeping through anymore. This is her routine: rubs eyes, I bring her to her crib, soother and cover her up, she turns her head to the side, and she's alseep. Or the more complicated route, mmm, not quite tired, I'll play with this neat blanket for a bit'. I'm not bragging, in fact I find it almost eerie how easy she goes down, how many times have I stood there watching her and wondering if she was real? But the recent 3x night waking has made up for it!! Both Axel and I are sick, sick, sick, and I blame it on a comprimised immune system from lack of sleep!:
Poor Axel, this is him tonight, after we put him down to sleep. And keep in mind, he has adorable pronounciaton yet, like 'problem' is 'pwobwum' and 'scary' is 'stawy'. he says 't' for hard c's.
'Mommy, I want daddy' ( I was getting tea in the kitchen)
'Why do you want daddy, Axel? You need to go to sleep'
'Oh, I want daddy to come down'
'Ok Axel (I go into his room and sit on his bed), I'll get daddy, but tell me what's the matter'
'Oh, mommy, there was a big scary monster and I was scared'
'Oh. really. Well, Axel, I'll get daddy, but let me tell you something, monsters arent' real, they're just pretend'
'well, there's just one problem mommy'
'there was a monster'
'oh, really. ok, well, where was the monster?'
'in the kitchen'
'and what did the monster look like?'
'a frog. big and round. it was scary and I was scared when I was sleeping'
'oh. well, are you sure you weren't dreaming?'
'wellll, maybe I was dreaming'
ok, so maybe that doesn't translate well into type. sometimes I think things are funny and no one else does.: but it was cute that he was so sure he saw a monster, and he knew what it looked like. in a way I feel sad, though, I don't want him to be scared of things. and i liked, 'wew, deh's just one pwobwem mummy' he's not even 3!
ok, so anyone else have some awesome stories?
(i was wondering where montanamama was too)
