Mani/Pedi Lemon

Little Miss got her first mani/pedi (by me) today. Before this she only got her toenails painted.

Teen Miss let me try one of her lemon Luna bars. So good! It tastes like a lemon dessert.

I didn't do much else today. No knitting or crocheting. My husband came home from a five day business trip today. Though, I did manage to take a nice nap with him.  =)

I'm trying to get Mo to where she'll go to sleep on her own. I'm at phase "sit on the floor in front of the door".  I started by laying with her until she went to sleep after she was weaned.  Almost there. It's been almost an hour since lights out tonight and she's still awake. Though, I think she's finally settled down and is done crying, talking, shouting and playing around.  She's getting better. The hardest part is not trying to make her settle down or punish her for talking or moving. It does no good and the interaction seems to only get her more wound up. Now, she only gets a one minute time out if she gets out of bed or stands up in bed.  It's also really hard to not talk to her. If she asks me to fix her blanket, I will, but I won't say anything and just go sit back down. If she wants something like for me to put one of her stuffed animals back that she doesn't want anymore, I don't engage her.

...I was wrong. She's sitting up and talking again. Sigh. We'll get there.  I hope. Wish us luck!

Have a great night!
