Hello again 🙂
This blog is a bit of a moany one I guess. It’s just been one of them days!!!
I’m the sort of person that is cranky with zero energy if I get less than 6 hours sleep. I need my sleep and that can be a difficult task when you have a two-year-old.
I knew from the moment I woke up it was going to be a “bad day” as I was exhausted from Alexa keeping me up half the night, and I just felt down in the dumps.
I dragged myself out of bed, shuffled into the front room (my mum was kind enough to take Alexa for a couple of hours) and was instantly greeted with a tantrum. Greaatttt. Looks like I’m not the only one that’s cranky today.
Alexa ran up to me, hit me and screamed “SHOEEEEE” in my face. She was having a meltdown because she couldn’t find her pink wellies. I instantly thought to myself “this is going to be a loooong day”.
It was really difficult to keep Alexa awake throughout the day with her having such a disturbed sleep last night. I took her for a walk, which she enjoyed, but as soon as we got back she immediately had another tantrum because… well, because she COULD I guess. I have no idea what goes through her mind half the time. What I do know is half the time she makes me want to smack my head against a brick wall.
Anyway, Alexa was happily playing with her pencils (drawing on everything BUT the paper I gave her… *sigh*) so I thought I’d get some stuff printed off for tomorrow. I lugged my printer into the front room and placed it on the coffee table, plugged it in and set to work. Not the best idea considering Alexa is obsessed with pulling wires out of things because she knows it winds me up. Whenever I’m working on my laptop or trying to print something, even just trying to charge my phone or dry my hair, Alexa will come running up and unplug whatever I’m using at the time. ARGH.
I spent most of that time lunging over my printer to stop her from unplugging it while it downloaded and updated (I haven’t used it in a LONG time). It looked like I was doing complicated yoga. Very uncomfortable considering I’m as flexible as a plank of wood.
Finally 8pm came around (THANK THE LORD) and I gave Alexa a warm cup of milk to help her sleep, as normally it sends her straight off. Nope. Not this time. Its 9:45pm and she’s still awake, causing havoc and throwing a tantrum every 5-10 minutes. All I’m thinking right now is “SOMEONE HELP ME PLEASE”.
I’m going to leave it there, get back to little miss trouble maker and GET HER TO SLEEP. I’m determined to do it before I have a mental breakdown. There’s only so many tantrums one can cope with in a day, and she passed that limit this morning.
Oh and in case you haven’t noticed, I am a bit of a moaner. Moaning does you good once in a while 🙂
See you tomorrow!
Lots of love,
