Have you ever read, "Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day"? Well, I had my very own version today.
First, I pitched a few fits that were so bad I flung myself backwards and screamed (I was already sitting so it wasn't too bad, and mom helped break my fling back with her arm)… I was REALLY upset I didn't get my way. I guess it is good to learn early that I have boundaries and don't always get my way, but it sure is a hard lesson to learn!
And then I fed myself breakfast and got REALLY sticky! Here I am eating food that I previously spit out and stuck to my tummy. YUM!
Wow, it sure is hard to get the food to go in my mouth (and stay there)!
I was such a mess Mom decided to give me a bath in the kitchen sink- what fun to splash and play!!
Afterwards I was crawling around and found a bottle that Dad had left out from the night before…good thing it was empty! Why did Mom take it away so fast? I love bottles!
Next, I found one of the coasters that Mom made at one of her bridal showers. They're very special to her, but I thought they would make a fun toy, so I carried it into the kitchen and threw it against the tile floor. What a cool sound it made when it broke into a bunch of pieces!
Mom came running, but not before I could pick up a piece to put in my mouth and cut my stomach and cheek. It didn't hurt but Mom felt HORRIBLE and was VERY MAD at herself for leaving the coasters within reach!
Now I'm taking my morning nap, and I'm sleeping really good. Just like Alexander's mommy told him, my Mom told me, "Everyone has a bad day sometimes." I think she was telling herself that, too!
