Sometimes it is so hard to just count your blessings and find the silver linings in things. That is what I am trying to do today.
Princess Fi has been a teething, cranky, drooly, needy mess for several weeks now. She has had a few good days mixed in there, but there have been a LOT of cranky ones. It has been difficult to accomplish much because on the cranky days, she wants to be held a lot and does NOT let me out of her sight without a major meltdown. It has been rough.
Today, I am making an attempt to change MY attitude, because the teething isn't going to go away and most likely the crankiness isn't either. So, here it goes.
I am grateful that my daughter loves me and still wants to snuggle with me and thinks I can make everything better. I am thankful that she has one tooth through, so that is one down. I am thankful that she is hitting appropriate developmental milestones, like separation anxiety.
Now to keep reminding myself of this when she doesn't want me to put her down so I can eat, go to the bathroom, or shower. I can do it.
