So Teigan took it upon herself to let me know that she is, in fact, an infant these past couple of days. The unrelenting crying as soon as I take her out of my arms is the main indicator. Exhibit A: my second day back in the office [yesterday] proved to be quite the challenge as she refused to go to sleep, even though she hadn’t slept all day and was clearly exhausted. The second I put her in the pack-n-play to take a little snooze, those vocal cords got quite a little workout. Stubborn like mommy? Clearly.
Anyways, as I got back home to get some work done that didn’t get accomplished in the office [I scooted home when she started to get fussy], she fell asleep in my arms and I took it upon myself to just put her on the couch in the TV room. Do I win Mommy-of-the-Year award for this [especially since she’s now super mobile on her back? You’d be surprised…]? Absolutely not… but I wasn’t about to risk losing out on 45 minutes of peace and quiet by moving her to her crib.
Now, if only I could somehow grow a go-go-gadget arm and discover the planting method for a money tree – I would be set!
