Little Bumblebee is having a hard week. Between teething and bonking into surfaces all the time it is a hot mess up in our household. This morning was especially rough. He crashed backwards pulling up to stand twice on the hardwood floor. Poor guy.
Sometimes, I just wish babies were born with a full set of teeth. Because, let’s face it, teething is a beepity beep. And then I think, “Ouch! No thank you!” It is what it is, and it is taking a toll on this household.
I feel like there is a delicate balance of taking care of your kiddos needs, and keeping up with housework. I imagine you can guess that our household is not the most organized domain as of late. Like I said, it is what it is. I would rather snuggle my kiddo in pain, than win an award for most put away dishes or best folded laundry. Because if we’re being honest, I dislike doing either in the first place.
Miss Ladybug has felt the increased stress, and has become super clingy and cuddly as well. It is frustrating, yet totally understandable. It just brings into perspective that if one family member is having a hard time, it is felt by all. It is a unifying, and a heavy realization. But in the end we are here for each other.
I just need to breathe patience, and ride out this wave in our lives. Because soon that tooth will break the surface, and normalcy will return to my buggy home. And you know what? There is no shame in a cuddly, movie day every now and then.
Have you had any struggles recently with your little ones? Did you find a good solution to helping them through their conflict?
