Motherhood has taught me patience. I now know how to tone out those cries and screams. I've become a pro at it. Though I don't stay wandering around while my child is acting up in public. I'm the mom that is scurrying out the door of embarrassment. I see these moms at the mall all the time and I totally sympathize with you.
threw my cell phone into the toilet! Normally I would blow a load and get angry, but surprisingly a surreal sense of calm came over me as I reached into the toilet to fetch it out. I looked at my daughter and said nothing. I think she was expecting me to yell. I was so calm I felt like I was in a daze. In such a daze that when I went to put my contacts in my eyes, I had completely ignored the fact that my hands were just in a toilet and didn't wash them. I didn't even realize this until hours later driving in the car to work. You know how when something just dawns on you when your not thinking about it? I'm expecting to visit the eye doctor in a couple of days!
locked herself in her room. I don't even know how this is possible but yep it happened. I had to call the maintenance guy to help me unlock it. I also got a bowl full of cereal down my dress this morning over a fight with the spoon. She obviously won. I guess this means we have reached that stage. The terrible toddler stage! It's only up hill from here.
This coming Saturday we will officially attempt yet again the potty training! Can't wait!
