What a day. I think my sides still hurt from laughing so hard. It sure was fun emailing everybody. Unfortunately, I’ve come to the conclusion that I can’t multi-task any more. No more holding Baby Bug on my lap while I peck out an email one handed. She is at a stage where she requires my attention 100% of the time or she starts this edgy whine that works my last nerve and exhausts me. The more I ignore her, the worse it gets and I’m turning into this lousy mom who resents the child who needs her all the time.
So from now on I’m just going to have to shut the laptop and only check in during her naps and after she goes to sleep. Bummer I know, but I have to. Myspace smackdown is fun and I sure would like to zap all those hotlinkers but I just can’t. Today whupped me in the butt. I do not like a cranky needy baby. Even after she has been sleeping for an hour I can still feel the tension in my neck. It wasn’t until I strapped her into the sling and headed off to the nearest Mexican Food joint for dinner that I realized that I was just plain wore out. I thought about everything I did and it wasn’t more than usual. I think it was just trying to console her all day that zapped me.
But I’m not too zapped to post some cute pictures of Baby Bug playing with the cats. A couple of people emailed me saying they missed seeing the cats. I also got another email accusing me of never dressing my baby anymore. I know I’m guilty of that, but it has been hot in our apartment! So here you go, Baby Bug in clothes with cats.
