What a difference a week makes. I got a new boss this week. Thank God. I just didn't think I could take one more day with the other one the way things were. Things have gotten a little better this week. So far.
Little M was off schedule all week. She didn't get her naps in again, at daycare. Well, except about an hour (50 min), or so. She seemed a bit distant this week (not as much eye contact and definitely more cranky...which she is usually never). I imagine it is mostly due to the being off schedule. I'm really hoping this weekend gets us back on track.
So, back to her birthday. People showed up about 2pm. Before that, I tried to get the house ready (for several days, actually). I ended up laying down for about an hour before Ellen came over because I had *yet another* raging headache. I took some migraine meds and thankfully it went away.
Sis was a bit late, but it was 'cause she went to get our grandmother! That was very cool. My brother also came. It was the first time he'd ever been to my house. So, that was pretty great, too. We just hung out and had snacks until about 4pm and then I opened Little M's presents. People wrote some fantastic tips and ideas for 'mommyhood'. Ellen had them put their ideas on a piece of paper and share them with me. So, I read them out loud. It was great.
Then came the cake!! Well, I imagine you saw the pics. :) That was just Awesome! And I'm so glad my brother took the pics. I can't wait to print them off and keep them for her! It was a really good thing to get her her own cake. That way she could just go at it and everyone else could have some of the big cake. Overall, it was a fantastic day! I couldn't have asked for better. And I know Little M had a great time!
So, let's hope this weekend gets us back on track.
