Today I am worn out and exhausted and feeling oh so proud of my eldest daughter (Kathy) for having the strength and stamina to do it day in and day out, but then I guess when I was her age I had it too. What am I talking about you wonder, well today being Wednesday I have had Summer all day and since she is teething she has been a right little so and so.
She started crying after her mum left this morning and she pretty much didn't stop all day, she only had about 55 minutes sleep during the day. When I went down to get Leo from school Jessica and Kelli stayed here with her and when I got back they both said that Kathy is amazing for being able to deal with her day in and day out while watching Sydney and cooking meals and doing other housework.
Kathy has just left after picking her up and I am glad to be home alone in peace and quiet for the afternoon, tomorrow from around 7am I will do it all again.
As I said she is teething and she is really not dealing with the pain very well, reminds me a bit of her mum. Kathy didn't handle teething well either while she was getting teeth but I do not remember he being as full on as Summer was today but then it has been 28yrs so I could be wrong.
Despite the frustration, I love having her here and love watching her while Kathy is at work being a nanna is a great job.
