overlooking some of my latest posts i have noticed that i am a little bit of a complainer these days. which is funny because whenever i write in a journal i always only write the positive and never the negative. so then why, when it comes to blogging, i am ready to spew forth anything that is bothering me? and people actually read my blog, you would think it would be the other way around that i would only want to share the positive.
really last week was not that bad, just some of the events were annoying and i only blogged about them. this weekend, however, was a little patience trying. velz was a little less than the angel that i am used to. she has been super whiny. she would go to the kitchen and cry at the fridge because she wanted food, but i had her on the brat diet, she would go to the front or sliding glass door and cry because she wanted to go outside, she would just whine and do that annoying "uh, uh, uh" and point at nothing but everything and cry when we would take her away from whatever she wanted. needless to say i am so confused. should i take her to the dr's (they said wait 10 days)? is she still sick? does she have an ear infection? are her little teeth that are coming through hurting? does she have allergies? does she just not like us anymore? i have thought of a thousand things that could be bugging her and i just don't know what it is. i find myself in a constant state of confusion, parenting is a constant state of confusion. last week Megg hit the nail right on the head when she wrote:
Welcome to parenthood, Ry. You are about to join the ranks of people who 1) don’t have a clue what they’re doing 2) wonder how other people seemingly do it so well and 3) are constantly questioning what the “right” thing to do is. Come on, what’s not exciting about that?
but it is a new week, and i am bound and determined that it's going to be a good one. it's warming up some, so hopefully we can go outside and play a little more and hopefully velzy's throw up is a thing of the past along with any and all of her other physical ailments. yep, i can feel it, it's going to be a better week.
