She's Like the Weather
On Tuesday this week it was 80 degrees out. Today is Thursday, May 2nd and we have a Winter Weather Advisory until 6PM. Get with the program Iowa, May is your redeeming month of the year.
I don't care how many theories there are on global warming, I live in Iowa and it's May and IT IS SNOWING. So yes, I mock you global warming.
On another note, Lucy has been crabtastic since the moment she woke up. Crying and whining...non stop. I had one of those really great parenting moments where I said "STOP CRYING!" which of course made her cry and cry and cry some more. And then, for a moment, I sort of wished I worked outside the home so I could get her dressed and drop her off at the babysitters.
I'm kidding. It was waaaay longer than a moment that I thought on that idea. Because there are days and moments where I want to trade one set of trials for a new set of trials...
But either way, there will be trials.
So today I will endure the endless whining, and tantrum throwing. The demands, the time-outs, and the potty training. Because in between all that, she crawls up next to me and says, "Mom, I loooooove you." and "I snuggle you" and "Mom, your hair is crazy."
She's right, my hair is crazy.
And tomorrow...she'll likely pop out of that bed with smiles and giggling.
Her moods change like Iowa's weather.
