I just looked at her, totally dumbfounded, and simply said, "what?" although in my head, it sounded a lot more like WTF.
She looked at me, again, this time totally calm, and said, "Myra necklace please."
Yes. She woke us at 3am, screaming and crying because she wanted an f'in necklace. Are you kidding me?
I just looked at her, wanting to cry myself now, and said, "it is time for night-night. We can have a necklace in the morning." Of course, because she is a toddler, this was not satisfactory to her, so we were up, in heavy negotiations, for the next two hours.
Rockin' her necklaces! Please excuse the
background. It was sheet changing day.
Everyone warns you that newborn babies don't sleep, but what no one tells you is this: once you have kids, sleep is never again guaranteed. My sweet little Moose started sleeping through the night at 6.5 weeks old and by through the night, I mean 12 hours at a time. (I know, you hate me. I don't blame you. I am realistic though. I know that it was just dumb luck and that I should count my blessings. Trust me, I do).
Even with her being a good sleeper though, a full night's sleep is never a guarantee. Sometimes she wakes up because she isn't feeling well or because she has a bad dream. Sometimes she is thirsty. And sometimes she just wants some accessories. Is that too stinkin' much to ask?
Nothing is sweeter than a sleeping baby.
