I don't want to put this on FB b/c family will offer "help" that I don't want.
I'm having lots of BH today.
DH is having work problems and fish tank problems and has been taking the stress out on me.
DD didn't take a nap and really pushed buttons during quiet time.
DD spit chewed up banana on me.
Outside, dd fell and scratched her thumb.
After getting a bandaid she was sitting on my lap and I was sitting on the bottom brick step and she jumped off my lap and fell, scratching her arm (more like gouging it) on the brick in two spots.
I feel guilty and frustrated and angry with her all at the same time. She is now watching a movie while I'm crying. I just can't handle today anymore.
Hang in there, we all have those days. I had one of those nights last night. I ended up going to bed early.

Sorry DD is being such a handful. I've been struggling with my DD since we've moved and I don't get the break of going to work anymore. She has also decided that naps aren't happening anymore and she won't fall asleep until after 9pm. Unfortunately that means she is super cranky from about 3 pm on. I hate that I use the TV to get a break but some days I don't know what else to do.
I'm finding I'm not sleeping as well lately and things that I normally am able to ignore are becoming much bigger deals both with DD and DH.

I am so sorry you are having one of those days. I wish I could be there to relieve you of some of the stress, play with DD, etc. It's hard being mommy and being pg......

Awww Joni I'm sorry your day didnt go well. I think that having a 2 year old and being pregnant is probably the hardest thing i've ever done and it sounds like she is acting a lot like DS right now. Try not to feel bad when you reach the end of the rope, we've resorted to Blues Clues to get through the end of the day :-/

Thanks everyone. Unfortunately after I posted the contraxs got worse so I had to relax the rest of the evening. I think dh forgot what that is like b/c he kept trying to get me to do things with him and was not wanting to watch dd. But finally about 8 they calmed down. I went to bed at 9:30 but kept waking up again so I'm tired again today. But today I'd like to take it easy. We'll see how that goes.
