Today I was planning to share some fun pictures from my week & not really write much but as I started to do that I thought to myself, um not so much, because the pictures would totally be misleading in regards to how my week actually played out. Here is why, the pictures posted would only show the really fun & good times from my week instead of telling the story behind them.
This week has been the hardest week I've ever had as a stay-at-home mommy. Seriously! This week Noah has not played with his toys, really at all. Usually his days are filled with playing cars, choo choos, airplanes, and the soccer ball. This week, nothing interested him. Also, he would not take a nap until after 4 pm every day making it a very long day for the both of us. Plus, this week was probably the most I've ever had to put him in time out. Time outs now have turned from sitting in the chair in his room for 2 minutes into him screaming & crying for 10-30 minutes in his room. He just loses it anytime he hears, "time out" to the point that he needs to throw a long drawn out fit in his room. Noah has been testing how far he can push before he gets into trouble, fun times. Adding to all of this, Johnny was pretty busy all week so we really haven't seen too much of one another, making it a very long week at home with Noah. In the evenings, I've had a lot of commitments & things going on. With all that said, this week was seriously exhausting.
Don't get me wrong there have been some really great moments this week with Noah that dont include whining, crying, fits, and time outs. Plus this week was filled with lots of hanging out with friends. Not to mention, I totally went all Pinterest mommy over here & actually made a ton of stuff from my toddler board. I made 7 activity bags filled with things for Noah to do. I'll have to take a picture & share them next week. They really came in handy this week with Noah not wanting to play with toys. Last week we tried out painting with water colors & this week we did a whole lot more of that. Its been fun sharing art with him.
Anyhoo, so instead of just posting all of the fun times from this week I decided to go ahead & share the not so fun stuff with you as well. Here's to hoping that next week is way better & that this weekend is great!
Happy Weekend Friends!
