. I always have great expectations at bedtime, probably too great, I’m mostly disappointed. I think it’s been five times now, in and out of their bedroom, spewing threats and wishing they weren’t room sharing. They feed off each other, obviously, but the younger one is the culprit! How do I work that one out? They wake each other up and keep each other up, it’s 8:00 p.m and the two year old who woke up at 6:00 a.m. because of big sister is in their room laughing and yelling “Mama! Mama!”I’ve been called lots of things but only “mom” 763 times in one hour.
Of course no one is forcing us to make them room share, it’s my choice right? Yes, and it will be good, it will be great, it will be hard and it will suck. But I believe the benefit of them being together will outweigh the negative. So every night I chug along, thinking of something new I can try or do or say. I mostly talk to myself but my husband gets lucky on the weekends.
Lately, Averi’s favorite words are “no, mine!” Side eye….
Her language is coming along but most of it is still foreign gibberish.
She is a picky eater but if Im eating something chances are she wants it. She is very smart, too smart and she is persistent and head strong. If she is upset, life as you know if is dedicated to her, she will not let you live until we solve her drama. Problem is, nobody knows what she needs, also known as the terrible twos.
We attempted to hit up the San Diego night market last weekend.
Averi had been a mess all day but I was so sure she would liven up once we headed out, she always does.
But she didn’t!
Looking forwarded to something relating the Asian night markets we had all once experienced….in China….we arrived disappointed. It was much more like an Asian Fusion food truck festival. No buns, no dumplings, no insects…so sad.
There was some good food and some not good food, I got the lobster noodles and it was good but not good enough for the price.
We ate, spent money on keeping the kids busy and then headed home with less cash and pretty disappointed. I guess now we know.
Tomorrow we are going swimming with friends, Kaili whispered to me that she wants me to cancel. I asked her “how come?” “She say’s, there might be a bumble bee there!”
