Ok, I’m going to preface this by saying I’m not 100% against some forms of CIO though I could never sit for an hour and listen to one of my kids cry. I’m just not built that way. JP is 3. And he’s upstairs screaming “MMMMMAAAAAMMMMMMMAAAAAAAA!!!!” over and over again. And I hate it. But he does this every few months. Just cries for no reason (now he’s on to DADDY!) and fights sleep. Hunter often has more success than I do. He can sit up there and talk to him for 2 seconds and come down with no tears. Me? I lay there for 5 minutes and then listen to crying for 20 minutes. I. HATE. IT. Hate it.
Does it get any better? I mean, seriously? Will it? And if JL starts this, I may fall apart. I can just lay him down and he’ll go to sleep so long as he has a pacy. God help us when we take the pacy.
Other than this heartrenching post, an uneventful day. We had a family day and did not go to church. Bad members, I know. But I’ve been traveling for 2 weekends in a row and I have to work next Saturday so I took a day. We went to Hancocks and I always walk out of there feeling like I’ve been screwed. Like I never get the deals I think I’m going to…kind of like Walmart. lol. Oh well. It was amusing to buy polka-dotted upholstery fabric for couch cushions and then 2 yards of camouflage fabric. And a yard of black girly trim for my mistreatment (that I plan to post tomorrow since I do have pictures now).
