- Today as we left the mattress store, Mackenzie enthusiastically waved goodbye to the nice man who sold us the mattress and called out:
“Goodbye. I love you!”
I do believe it made his day.
- My girl was so excited to sleep in her new bed, she opted to forgo a story and a song and skip straight to the tuckling in.
- Thirty seconds after I closed the door, she was desperate for me to return and wanted me to lay next to her because she was nervous about “such a big bed”.
- When she elbowed my stomach climbing out of my lap earlier, I reminded her to be soft with my belly and I asked her why we can’t push on Mama’s belly right now. She replied “From because I’ll push the baby out!” Ah, if only it was that easy.
- I told her we’d set the crib up again when we had a baby to put in it. She commented: “And when the doctor says Come out, baby! then I will hold baby sister in my arms, and her eyes will close, and I will rock her like this so she can go to sleep” (as she gently cradles an imaginary baby and gazes down at her empty arms). Mkay. A hormonal mama can only handle so much sweetness in one day.
In other news, I’m absolutely terrified that her panda days have come to an end with the introduction of a bed. She has been putting in sold 12 hour nights and 3 hour naps up until now and though I miss her when she’s sleeping away the day, those bonus hours have helped me keep working and helped her be a happy, rested little girl. I fear what the morning will bring.
