Creative title, I know! ;o)
Well, today has been interesting. An odd mixture of things, I would say. I really dislike the start of Daylight Saving Time (is it with or without an “s”? I googled it and saw it both ways). Anyway, it is hard enough to adjust as an adult. But to be a toddler and not understand why nap and bed are earlier than you are used to… Well, that is just a joyous occasion to witness! ;o) But I am getting ahead of myself.
We woke up late this morning, plus Thomas was still sick this morning, and I woke up with a throbbing earache, so we (once again) missed church. I HATE that we miss so much. I really do. I am saying right now that we ARE GOING next week! Thankfully, Zeeva was pretty good this morning and we both were feeling quite a bit better by this afternoon. I am praying for an awesome night’s sleep tonight so we can both get fully heathy again. Zeeva has not been sleeping well lately and has been waking up many times during the night. It does not matter how deep your sleep is… If you are woken up every hour or two, you are never going to feel rested! She decided to play today instead of taking a nap (I blame DST!), and only ended up sleeping for about 45 minutes, so I am really hoping she will sleep great. She also got into a bunch of mischief during her nap time so I hope she does not decide to do that again! Thomas peeked in to check on her at one point, only to find that she was taking a “nap” in one of her dresser drawers. Talk about a terrifying moment! Thankfully, her dresser is short and heavy and unlikely to tip over but we definitely need to attach the anchor straps we bought recently. The cute thing about this was that she had put three of her stuffies in two of the drawers, so they could take “naps” with her! Lol! I love that she has started to do some of that pretend play. It is so fun to watch.
The rest of the day was fine… Zeeva ate more salad than mac and cheese at dinner! Woohoo! I even gave her a bowl of it just for herself this time because she keeps stealing it from everyone else. As bedtime drew near though, we could tell she was getting tired… Fussiness for no apparent reason, and she threw a complete fit when it was time to get ready for bed. Oh well!
I almost forgot to share the BIG news! After lunch, Zeeva ran up to me with her Dolly’s potty, yelling “Pee! Pee! Pee!”! So we ran to the bathroom, where she sat on her froggy potty for quite a while. Then she wanted to try to real toilet… Ad she actually peed a tiny bit in it! We had several more bathroom runs throughout the day, but no more successes. But I am so proud of her for actually letting us know! I think she was actually peeing in her diaper every time she told me that because it was wet each time I took it off. I may put her in undies tomorrow. We shall see.
Speaking of tomorrow… I am scared to weigh myself! I have not done too badly today with eating and I have gotten a little activity in so far (Just Dance), but I am still scared to see my weight. It is what it is, I suppose! Wish me luck!
