parent of the year, baby. it's mine for sure.

Last night, Hazel answered to a different name.
Fussy Von Whinencrank.

Pick me up.
Put me down.
How dare you put me down??
I want that toy.
No, I want THAT toy.
She screamed and fussed at everything.
And just as her Mama had decided that tossing her out the window might be the only way to get her to stop fussing...
We discovered the bathroom sink.

(Not that any part of my brain even considered metaphorically tossing my baby out the window... ahem.)
It may be unorthodox - but it worked for a good 25 minutes. And that, friends, is the equivalent of 17 hours in the just-before-bedtime moments of the day.

I'm pretty sure this solidifies my title as Mama of the Year. You have my permission to be impressed.

Aren't they funny? And it's amazing what power a mirror has over children!

Oh my goodness that's so cute! It looks like that sink was made for her. But, in a few weeks she'll be screaming at you because she won't fit in it anymore!

Glad it worked!
Now if you could find a sleep trick like that??? :) Or has that been better?
