Ups and Downs

Tonight was a struggle. It was a long day in the office and Amelia turned into a very typical two-year-old over supper. With just one parent trying to handle everything, we got behind and she got overtired, so bedtime meant lots of demands and tears when she didn't get her way. She kept asking for Mommy to get up, but I just couldn't this evening. I don't know which of us was more upset by that. We finally gave up and plunked her in the crib. A minute later she was quiet and she was out like a light a couple minutes after that.

I wish this was easier. All I can do is keep reminding myself that it's short term. And on days when I feel good, to do as much as I can with Amelia.
