We have had a rough couple of days this week. Im not sure what part of the universe if affecting my little toddler but man oh man it is testing my resolve this week.
Clingyness, tantrums and general tiredness from pregnancy equals a stressful time for both of us. Pregnancy second time round is definately different having a little person still rely solely on you and not being able to just sit or nap. Twice in 3 days in the car, a complete meltdown has occurred where she screamed the whole way while in the car, when usually she would just fall asleep or play with her book or baby. So much out of character for her its taken both us by surprise. A usually chilled, happy independent little girl is now incapable of doing anything on her own. It is hard seeing her go through this change (whatever it is).
Our little girl wants nothing to do with daddy at the moment unless im in the room with them. I feel so bad for him as he tries so hard to give me space on my own to have a shower or do work but if little miss knows im in the house she NEEDS to be with me and hysterics ensue when she is on the wrong side of the door. I have tried to explain to hubby its not him and that she is just going through a phase at the moment but I can tell its hard for him when he can't entertain her like he's used to (he is the fun one lol).
Also having a business to run is not the easiest currently as im trying to work duri g her sleep time (1 hour during the day max). Working when shes awake is nearly impossible as im working on the computer while trying to stop the toddler from sending half done emails while sitting on my lap playing with the keyboard 😟. You know because god forbid I put her down for 2 seconds 😭.
Im not sure if its the full moon coming or that she is finally realising that her world is going to be turned upside down in 15 weeks, but it is definately been a few days of cuddles, snuggles and lots of patience.
Heres hoping to this phase being over soon so i can go back to stressfree showers without hearing the hysterical screaming on the other side of the door 🤞.
