Was seriously ready to cry from frustration last week when Myelle was super needy and I couldn't get any work done. This box of papers were sitting there screaming "punch some holes in me!" and all I could do was stare at them.
Then I picked her up, put her in the playpen again and held my breath. Miraculously, she stayed in it without a fuss for nearly an hour just playing by herself all content. It's so funny how their little moods are from moment to moment. I felt like I was being a terrible mother about half hour into it for not entertaining her that I was going to pick her up out of there and play with her. Then thought to myself that I'm probably not the only mother who does this - right ladies? haha. I got over feeling guilty real fast. Felt so good to get that box of papers all punched. I was happy and she was happy.
