The Longest Day

I want to crawl back under the covers and hide today. I'm just having, "one of those days." My daughter is sick. She's got a cold. No big deal under any other circumstances, but she is refusing to sleep. I put her down for a nap at 2:00 and it took her 45 minutes to calm down enough to close her eyes. 45 minutes of screaming, crying, coughing. I really wanted to run away. The last two days all she wants is to sleep in my arms. When I put her down in her crib, she wails.

I called my husband for some sympathy, some words of encouragement. I should have known better. He actually laughed.

My 4 year-old is driving me nuts, too. She knows exactly which buttons to push and she's pushing them all.

Calgon take me away ....

What we all wouldn't give for those calgon moments. Mine was Tuesday while working with 18 children all between the ages of 2.5 and 5 years old.

Hang in there and lock yourself in the bathroom if need be.
