|Trying to take the nappy off the teddy,|
patience very far away
All our plans for the weekend were cancelled because of sickness! Not because of our toddler who was sick, but because of the other parties involved. In the end it turned out to be a good thing. Toddler is “Miss Difficult” herself! Nothing seems to be pleasing or to her liking! When something falls on the floor, she goes into “Princess”-mode, and goes “Uh-uh-uh!!” until someone picks it up, or we suffer a MAJOR tantrum upheaval! (Not that we “dance” to her every whim...)
She’s not feeling well! We KNOW THAT! We FEEL THAT!
My Mom looked after her on Friday, and said that she kept them very busy. When she traced the outline of her hand on a paper, she had to do it again. And again. And again... Uh, uh, uh!
The fever has finally broken! We are only struggling with the blocked and runny nose. It had us up until 12 last night, because she could not drink or sleep properly. Hopefully she will sleep in her bed again tonight, because my back is broken, and Hubby’s back is broken. She sleeps on 90%of our bed, and we hang on to dear life! The double bed is way too small!
We went to the movies yesterday, and at one stage I thought that we did not fully think it through. The toddler was saying “Klaar!” (Finish) when the previews were showing already. She was walking around in the isle, and moving from my lap to her sister’s lap to Dad’s lap! Shrek is a very very very long movie! Luckily the storyline was not bad! We made it to the end! Huge achievement!
We have also been collecting a variety of containers with food. We try different kinds of food/snacks/tit-bits to get her to eat, but when Little Missy is sick, nothing seems to her liking! We actually got excited when she ate her first spoonful of lasagne!
We survived the last four days! Well done to us! (Huge smile of relief!)
exercises with teddies (going to the Teddy Bear Clinic)
