Wednesday 6 June 2012: Om nom nom
That seems to be the title for an awful lot of my blips but, once again, it's pretty apt. Clauds had a little treat of one of the cupcakes that I made yesterday. Sadly, I couldn't get to the camera before she demolished most of the frosting but I do love this little sequence of pics. Little moments in the life of a tempestuous little girl.
She seems a bit better today. I finally got to the chemist and got her some Linctus. What good it will do remains to be seen but she's not as miserable today at least and that's a start.
It's funny - I always worried about having a baby. A baby. It seemed like a baby would need so much special care and attention, I worried that, because it couldn't tell me what was wrong, that I would struggle and find it frustrating but boy are the twos harder!? I keep reminding myself that I am happy that she is independent. She's a very intelligent little girl and with that comes a down-side - while her mind may be running at 100 miles an hour, her emotions are still that of a toddler. She struggles to regulate them and it results in some pretty epic tantrums. I'd rather she was the way she is than a cowed, complicit little thing who never throws a strop but never speaks up either. I was very much the 'shy' child and it makes my heart swell to see Claudia running off to play with complete strangers without so much as a backward glance. She doesn't care how much older they are as long as she can talk
at to them and have a fun time.
So here is my grown-up girl in all her curly glory doing what our family does best - stuffing her gob full of tasty but sinful food.
