This morning was so much worse then normal. He finally gave up and I ended up changing her, dressing her, brushing her teeth, everything, once I was out of the shower. I don't know if it was because she's not feeling great due to the cold she's fighting off, but she was a clingy, weepy babe this morning. She went into her carseat easy enough, but when I went to say bye, she broke down and kept asking to be picked up. I tried telling her how much fun she would have at daycare today, and that I'd see her later, but it was no use. It broke my heart and I'll admit that I cried when they drove off. I hate starting days off like that.
I'm looking forward to lots of hugs tonight, and some sleeping in for all of us tomorrow. I am definitely looking forward to four days off, quiet time with my husband and by myself, and some good family time.
In light of that, I'll taking a four-day blogging hiatus to enjoy ringing in the new year with my family.
It was a rough morning, but overall it was a great year. Gwen has grown in leaps in bounds. We had great vacations. We had some trials (house fires and subsequent annoyances!), but I think we are ending this year better then we started it, and that's all we can ask for. I look forward to all that 2012 has to bring!!
Ps. A video to share because I don't want to be the only sap crying over it...
