Minute with Modo (#9): Cranky Pants

Cranky Pants

I was cranky today!

If I am completely honest I have been cranky for a few days. The biggest indicator was my utter frustration with my daughter. I have been blessed with one of the chilliest babies ever…and I don’t say that just because she is my little bundle of joy.

But these past few days every time she made a noise I found my skin crawling (she has been teething, so I am not a complete monster). If you have read my blogs you know just how much we yearned for our little girl so being annoyed with her really started to make me sad.

When I recognized this, I stopped….gave her a bath, read her a story, and held her until she fell asleep.

Parenting isn’t always about getting it right everyday….it’s about being conscious…..present….aware of the good and the bad.

So tomorrow I will start again…being the best mother I know how on that day.

Always with love,

Modo

WebMD

Stay away from this site! Genesis has been doing something that I thought was a cute little quirk…shrugging her shoulders. My husband SIMPLY said ” I wonder why she does that”….well what do you think I did!!??? webMD’d that shit of course! After 20 minutes I was convinced my daughter had epilepsy, seizures, was mentally retarded, and needed to be seen by a neurologist ASAP! After an hour of googling I was in TEARS! Literally terrified….I had to get up and just go hug her and take a deep breath. Listen folks who knows if it is something to worry about but one thing I know for sure is the internet won’t help me find the answer.

I am still going to call her doctor tomorrow though…smh…damn you google damn you!!!!

Always with love,
