What a week
Friday, April 14, 2017
I watch my cousins 2 little girls (4 and 1) 3 times a week. Monday and Tuesdays 7am to 330pm and Wednesdays 7am to roughly 7pm. This week was different. My cousin and her husband had tickets to a concert last night so my cousin dropped them off yesterday at 2pm and Im not to sure as to when she will get them today. Probably around 3 because she will want to take the advantage of not having the girls around.
Monday and Tuesday went by just fine. Wednesday I had a headache all day. It was like a baby migraine. It hurts between my eyes, sides of my head and the back of it. I was not looking forward to having the girls Thursday. The previous night I took some stuff and it didnt do much when I woke up Thursday.
Thursday I was a zombie. I laid on the couch all morning. It was hard to lay comfortably because if I was one way the back of my head would hurt and if I laid another it was the sides of my head and between my eyes that hurt. I finally found the right spot but had to get up because the girls showed up. It was their nap time so that was GREAT. They got up when my aunt got home and they did an Easter Egg hunt in the back. I felt a little better but it hurt to much to fix dinner so we had Chinese.
I hate that I always forget about the one thing that always helps me. My Excedrin. I took some just before dinner and a hour later I was feeling better BUT I was super sleepy. Something I forgot to mention was the 4 years olds attitude. When she woke up around 5 after her nap she was fine for like 6 minutes and then threw herself back and hit her head on the couch. She cried forever and screamed BAD VICKY over and over. Me and my aunt laughed because I did nothing to cause her to hit her head. This went on for over 10 minutes. She finally calmed down and we did the egg hunt. When we came in they had a few pieces of candy and then she went back to having a fit. She was on the floor kicking and screaming calling everyone bad. She was also throwing her face in the couch. I think it was because she wanted to watch The Good Dinosaur but we kept telling her that we are going to watch it AFTER dinner. When it comes to her eating she is a pain. She eats everything but the meat and then throws a fit on how she cant feed herself. But she only does this with dinner. She had sweet and sour chicken last night and it took her around 45 minutes to eat it. She was fight everyone about eating her last few bites. We finally got to watch the movie. Half way through we paused it so she could brush her teeth and we could take the trash out.
Its bed time and the 1 year old wore herself out and she was asleep within 5 minutes. The 4 year old was a completely different story. She slept in the living room with my aunt. They had Ben and Holly on but she just sat up and watched it. My aunt turned on some music and she just starts to cry for her mom. She was in and out of sleep for about an hour until I finally came in and told my aunt that I would take to my room. We got into bed and she curled up to my side and stuck her hands up my sleeve. Then she rolled over onto her belly. Then back over onto my side and her hands up my sleeve. This went on for over an hour. I rolled over onto my side and she curled up onto my back. I think I got 4 hours of sleep.
I at least woke up without a headache. I love you Excedrin. Im going to be fixing some pancakes here soon and I hope both girls are relaxed the rest of the morning. Tonight I also plan to be in bed by 9. I need some good sleep so bad.
