A day in the life...

What Scarlet wants for Christmas; a crown and a pink bike. What Scarlet needs for Christmas; a little bit of PATIENCE! She is very demanding and if I even hesitate getting her what she wants she says "MOMMY you are taking a LONG time!!" I try to explain to her what patience is and that mommy has things to do and can't always stop what I am doing to get her something...and then I trail off because she's not hearin' it. Its like explaining math to me...don't get it...not yet anyway my brain just isn't ready in its pre celestial form. Lets just HOPE it doesn't take Scarlet as long to learn patience as it does for me to learn math.

While we are on the subject of Scarlet she is walking into my room at this moment explaining that her hiccups don't want to sleep. Yesterday it was her arm, the day before her head. The last few nights she has cried herself to sleep telling us over and over again "I don't like to sleep, I don't like to." Again, I try to explain that I know its hard but our body needs rest to be happy. So she repeats herself again thinking it will make sense to me this time"but I don't LIKE to." Oh, now she is telling me that Rosie was crying and it woke her up (she was laying in bed for 5 min. max) so now she can't sleep. She just asked me "does that make sense?" No Scarlet darling, it doesn't BUT neither does forcing her to take a nap these days because it just doesn't happen. I told her Rosie stopped crying so she can go back to sleep, and she said " mommy you are making me nervous (I assume she means frustrated)." Of course I have to laugh and hug that little body and it's sophisticated little spirit.

I just put her in her room for being naughty to Rosie and she is pounding on the door saying "let me out of here Heidi, are we friends?"

There it is, a snippet of what its like being Scarlet's mom. So what am I getting at...I don't really know. I guess I am just venting that its hard to know how much you can expect from your babies. Its hard to know what they can understand and what they pretend not to understand to get what they want. Its hard being a parent, but at the same time its sure gives me a lot to laugh about, which makes it worth it.
