This is my bundle of demands, also lovingly known as Tuey, my almost two year old daughter. My 5 year old son is on vacation with his grandparents & my husband is away all summer in school. So, that leaves me. Me to be her constant companion, entertainer, & source for everything. I can’t even explain the joys of hearing “mommy” 68 times before 8 am.
So, ice. It’s how I get by these days. Buys me a solid 20 minutes, typically, so in an effort to continue chronicling our everyday moments & sharing it with everyone, I decided to document this morning’s little ice capades! And it turned to be a lot fun!
But did I mention she’s sick? Yea, her level of clinginess is through the roof, meaning my level of “omg, if I don’t get a minute to myself….” is peaking, but only a bit 😉
Oh, and she’s still wearing the same outfit she was wearing yesterday. Same pony, too.
See Jack, our dog? He loves ice-time since he enjoys to eat any piece that makes its way to the ground, which is a guarantee since Tuey is in that phase where she has to throw everything, everywhere, all of the time. I love this image because I intentionally waited to get a shot of him peaking through her & the tupperware, & it turned out so cool!
Don’t get me wrong, I love that I am able to be with my daughter all day, every day, but it’s not always so blissful. Real life is mix of joy & overwhelming feelings of “goddammit”.
And as silly & petty as it may sound, ice helped me keep my sanity for another day.
