but looks can be deceiving.
Here are my recent interactions with Alex from her crib:
6:30am - Alex wakes up crying (she's been sick and waking me up all night long) so I go get her a drink of milk and wrap her back up in her blankets.
6:45am - Alex starts crying again. I go in to her room again and she says, (in a bratty tone of voice, I might add) "I want daddy." I said ok and went back to bed. Paul was in the shower so she was just going to have to wait a few minutes.
6:50am - Alex is crying. AGAIN. I go in and try to pick her up and what do I get? A slap in the face (literally) and a "GET DADDY!" That's the kind of thanks a mother gets after being up all night with her sick child. Whatever, at least I got to go back to bed : )
Thursday afternoon, after naptime
I went in to get Alex out of her crib and she didn't want to come out. She was in a silly mood and I asked her what she was doing. Her response was, "Ummm, taking a nap and pooping." Ok.
