Anyway, I always find that the best therapy for days like today is to remember the good moments. The bring-a-tear-to-your-eye-wow-I-have-the-best-job-in-the-world moments. Because of course these greatly outweigh the crappy moments, both in number and in magnitude. So even on days like today there are plenty of these happy moments to reflect on. Like when Miss climbed up on Lass's crib while I was getting her up from her morning nap and said, "I yuv you sissur." Like the belly laughs from Lass when I tickled her chubby thighs during her diaper change before bed. Like the funny wave and "Hi Momma, hi Sweetie!" from Miss this afternoon when I went to get her from her nap. Like the fact that Lass finally took a whole bottle from her daddy this evening (hooray!). Like when Miss unexpectedly grabbed tightly around my neck as I was getting her in her seat for her snack and said, "I yuv you Momma." And just in case thinking about these and other great mommy moments from today weren't enough to brighten my mood (they were), I made a few fun video clips from the past few days that make me smile and occasionally laugh out loud.
Here is the sisterly love video that goes along with the photos I posted yesterday. Miss starts out singing to Lass and then gasps, and I love how she says, "She spit a little bit!"
Here is video documentation of my sweet, non-sleeping girl rolling over.
And here is my favorite video of Miss singing. She has really gotten into singing songs from her favorite show, Yo Gabba Gabba. The first one here is "I'm so, I'm so sorry. I'm so, I'm so sorry. I can fix it, I can make it better." When she doesn't know the words, she just wings it. And you can't really tell from the video, but she is looking at her reflection in the glass doors of our fireplace while she's singing this one. The second song I prompt her to sing, because I love the accent she sings it with, "Keep troying. . ."
And that's my movie therapy for tonight. Lass has already woken up twice (and only been in bed for an hour and a half), so this could be a long night. I'm going to go wash my greasy hair and try to get some sleep.
