The past two days I was in a bit of a fog. I am not sure why. The past couple of days seemed like a morning when you just cannot get going. But it lasted for days. I couldn't figure it out. Am I just pregnant? Or a little sick too? or sad? or bored? And why isn't it more clear?
Well, despite my best effort at bad days, Andrew would have none of it. Usually I make bad days worse by worrying about the affect my bad days have on my kid. But yesterday in particular Andrew took on the full responsibility of the Cheer Up Crew. He was sweet and snuggly (!) and funny. Laughing and smiling, making me laugh and smile. We played an apple game where I would ask for a piece of his apple. And then I would pretend that I didn't know how to eat it. He graciously provided step by step instructions to this, one of life's greatest mysteries.
"ok, now eat."
He used a teacher voice and everything.
I think he sort of loved that I was out for the count and sitting on the couch more. Easy access mommy. So maybe my stinker days are his best days. The days I slow down and sit down and watch him put Mr. Potato Head together and eat his apples.
I still hate my stinker days and need to figure out how be more patient with myself during them. But I think I can forgo the guilt angle at least.
And that seems like the bulk of the battle.
