Which in turn, changes all of my plans. Instead of spending my "free" nap time crossing things on the to do list, I find myself throwing the list away entirely. Ever had one of those days? Please, pleeeeeease tell me about it if you have. It would make me feel like so much less of a loser.
I mean, bed time has always been my home run hit. Ive struggled with everything but BED TIME. Tonight, I swore I would put an exhausted little toddler in her bed where she would lay peacefully with a smile.
Its been two hours of screeming. Screeming like never before. I never lost my cool. I stayed calm as I tried technique after technique ad naseum (however you spell that, like I care). I finally decided that it was me who needed a time out, and after two intense hours, I closed the door, got on YOUTUBE and watched videos as I tried to tune out the screeming. Half way through my favorite vbloggers videos I stopped to have a dialogue with myself.
Inner me #1: Did you hear that?
Inner me #2: Hear what?
Inner me #1: Exactly...
Inner me #2: Is it.... Is it silence?
Inner me #1 & Inner me #2: SHE'S ASLEEP!!!!
(inner me's hold hands and begin to river dance in rupturous celebration)
Basically, I could have won the lottery. But this feels oh-so-much-better!
