Guilt Trip

Oh we've all been on them and most of us have even sent others on the guilt trip.  Olivia?  She's a master of them already.  I had to work a lot of hours last week and take a quick overnight trip to Indianapolis for business and little Missy was well aware that something was off on her day to day.  She was crabbier than usual during the day, unhappy when Grandma would get her from her afternoon naps because that's normally Mommy's job; and really needy for me at night.  We're talking like, she had to play with all her toys and everything like normal, but in my lap - the whole evening.  I feel awful.  She's stretching out her hands now for me to take her and has this ear pitching I don't even know what to call it when she feels like I'm ignoring her.  Oy.

On to happier notes, she is giving a few select people kisses consistently, starting to wave bye bye and those teeth are really coming through now.  I think there's more than a few brewing in there but she's pretty choosy about letting us get a sneak peek.  Only a few days of work this week and then we'll really be able to enjoy Olivia's first Christmas! exciting, I can't even tell you.  I do have to spend quite a bit of time today and tomorrow wrapping presents.

  1. Ahhhh...the guilt trip us working moms have to go through. I love my job and can't imagine not working, but yep, I get the guilt trip too. I am even luckier that I get to work from home, but that doesn't help when my little ones decide they need something when I am in the middle of an important conference call or right in the middle of a project.

    Have a WONDERFUL holiday!
