I went to bed early Tuesday night because I had a headache. I was hoping it would be gone when I woke up the next morning. No such luck. It was still there the next morning when I got up at 7:30am to get ready for work. And it did not go away until almost 6pm yesterday. Halfway through the day I was lucky enough to add a lovely pregnancy symptom to the list of 'Things that made me feel bad': heartburn.
I was hungry but had to force myself to eat. I tried to eat and got nauseous. I'd get up and get dizzy. On top of all the physical problems, I had a very busy day at work and as much as I tried to stay calm it apparently still showed in how I talked to the girls. L had a not so good day as well and was very short with the girls.
When I was trying to put Miss K to bed I could tell that she had had a rough day as well. It was much more difficult to get her to sleep and something that normally takes 30 minutes between getting ready for bed, reading a couple books and just talking about how her day went turned into a several hour long process. At one point she came out of her room to bring me some pictures she had drawn. She handed them to me to me and said: "Mommy, when you get mad just look at the pictures and they will make you happy again."
Even at 3 1/2 she had picked up on what I had been trying so hard to hide from her. Not that I really was mad. I was just exhausted and very short all day. But in her own little way she understood that I needed some extra love and a pick me up. She truly is a special little 'big girl'
