Somedays you have to improvise.
This sweet face may fool you but today was one of our toughest days yet. I'm still sick with a cold (thus, felt like napping and short on patience). Poor little girl is teething and wanted to nurse every hour, is chewing on every toy, blanket or finger nearby, and cried nearly all day. I felt so bad I could hardly find anything to comfort her.
In desperate need for some fresh air but too tired to pull out the stroller go for a walk, I improvised. I'm finding that's a common idea amongst moms. We have about 8 square feet of lawn in front of our apartment. I laid out a quilt and as the sun was going down we enjoyed a few minutes watching the birds in a nearby palm. It distracted her for about ten (blissful) minutes.
Then Kevin came home just in time to give me a few minutes to myself. Thank goodness!
