Anyway to keep from turning the blog into a huge complaint blog I've not posted.
I just thought I would share something from today. D and I were struggling with each other particularly bad today. I had done crafts with her, we played with Legos, we colored, we sang songs, we did a TON of different things trying to keep her entertained and happy (it was stormy most of the day) eventually to save her from my lack of patience she ended up in front of the TV.
Around 6 we went to target, it wasn't the worst shopping trip but it was one of those where I'm sure everyone in the store knew her name by time we left.
"Delilah where did you go"
"Ahh.. Delilah let's put that down"
"Delilah you have to put your shoes back on"
"Delilah you can get in the cart or get out but you can't do both"
"Delilah don't run away"
"Delilah please don't put that in the cart"
"Delilah, honey we don't need a hot dog costume for a dog"
By time we got to the check out I was spent and Delilah still had plenty of energy so of course the lady in front of us felt the need to apply for a target credit card. So while that was happening I kept putting candy back on the shelf and trying to just keep her near me.
Finally when we got to the register to check out the checker was going so quick as way to apologize, she barely even looked at us. Eventually she noticed D climbing everywhere and said "she's adorable" at the same moment looking at me. Then she did a double take at me and said "you guys could be twins" She literally was dumb founded for a moment and just looked at me then D then me then D "you guys look exactly alike!!" It was cute how she said it so sincerely. I don't know what made it different from the other 10 million times a day we are told we look like each other She just seemed so caught off guard by how much a mom and daughter could look alike.
It made me realize I should be nicer to my daughter because there is no denying she's mine.
