So I finally dusted off my sewing machine and started sewing again. I made a simple apron for Abigail as start. Of course, it has to be mustard and coral pink because I’m obsessed. Haha. This apron was initially meant for Abigail’s painting activity but she refused to use it on our painting session the other day. And last night, she was still wide awake at 11 pm (I was in a zombie mode, so sleepy). She handed this apron to me, asked me to put it on her and then she started her play pretend. I was about to get really mad because she refused to sleep and it was way past her bed time. We needed to get up early for school the next morning and I just needed some rest. But this little girl sure knows how to make me smile again. She cut the cakes into slices and served some to me (and I quickly grabbed my camera to get a few shots while she was playing). She asked me to pretend eating it. And you know, my mama heart melted just like that. And she went to bed right after that.
You know, it has been really tough these days to deal with her “nooooooo…” to whatever I said and asked. Probably we’re just starting this terrible two phase. But she is also that sweet little girl who likes to kiss and hug and do cutest things. I sure need to learn more about being a good mama, also to be more patient and stay calm when things are going wild with this toddler. I love her so much.
