Tales of a mood-switching toddler

This weekend was HORRIBLE with Emily. She's in a phase where she thinks screaming for 45 minutes will get her what she wants. But I am *so* over giving in to her. So last night, I was bummed. One of those why-did-I-do-this-I-hate-my-life kind of moods. And I was dreading Monday. But it's like Emily woke up a totally different kid - and stayed that way all. day. I picked her up from school, made dinner, made Halloween cupcakes, played in her Lightning McQueen tent and then she went to bed without a fight. How can they be so different just overnight?

I'm getting a little bit of relief at work, which I desperately need, so that's good. Anybody that's worked in site start-up knows how crazy it can be, I guess. I try not to stress. But I still do. And I've been fighting off this damn cold for over a week now. I went to the chiropractor today and asked him what this huge lump on the side of my neck is. He said it's my lymph node. Greeeat. Here comes months of unending illness.

Tomorrow night is pumpkin carving... WOOT! I'm pretty sure that I won't be able to pull off any loxie carvings, but I'll sure give it my best shot.


Hahah..! I want to get a drummel kit (is that how you spell it?) I want to learn how they carve in 3-D. How cool would that be?

I think I like it because it puts a smile on people's faces. (plus, to be honest? I really can't carve faces on pumpkins. They come out the same, and boring)
Oh, and as for Emily? Welcome to 3's. They are worse than 2's. 4's get a little better because you can rationalize with them. MyEmily is a tester. BIG TIME! She knows how to push buttons. (you see my posts... I go home and cry many nights after hearing how she behaved in school) Every day is not a picnic, but those moments when they are so sweet? Make up for it. :)
