It’s been quite a day. Quite. A. Day.
In addition to his cold, C was having a bad teething day today. I don’t understand why I’m so tired, because we didn’t even leave home today. I think it’s emotional exhaustion and frustration. When C wasn’t whining, he was screaming. The only time that he was quiet was when I went against one of my fundamental parenting philosophies – we cuddled up in the bed and watched television. Don’t judge me! A mother needs a little silence! It’s not like I can just leave the room to get some peace when we live in a one-bedroom apartment. Maybe it’s okay to do that if the alternative is losing your mind? *sigh*
So now that C is in bed for the night, I have some brownies in the oven. This will relieve my stress in two ways:
1. Baking relaxes me.
2. Chocolate! Need I say more?
