Stage 3 Clinger | Mommy and Me Monday | 300th ed


We’ve got a stage 3 clinger here for sure. I think there must be a 22 month wakeful period or her molars are killing her. Like I don’t know who my baby is some of the time. (I don’t remember E having 2 year molar pains like this, but I think the whole red heads and pain thing might be true, because the older two were miserable!).

This was a week of a lot of unplanned errands which pushed her to her max, too. We had to go get a new washing machine, but the store didn’t open for 30 minutes. So, we killed some time at Tar-jay. Thankfully, she was okay with being on my back because she’s been boycotting the carrier, too and wanting to be held in my arms.

Once we got the washing machine, there was a trip to exchange some shoes and she was done with the in and out of the car, so we hit the craft store for a couple things. She insisted on holding everything and called them all her “pillow.” I was thankful she would give me the snuggles.

Later in the week, I was overdue for an oil change. Thankfully, the weather was behaving and there there is a place that is a 5 minute walk from the YMCA, so we dropped the car off and walked over to get in a workout. My only oops was that I forgot a jacket for B, but luckily, the lillebaby is like a jacket and we had our hats from HookSmart in the car.

Are you noticing a trend? Because she’s been attached to me pretty much all week! I was getting ready and trying out hot rollers (I have no idea what I’m doing) and she was done; no nap, not happy, wanting nothing but being held. Yep, clinger.

Better planning would have had me doing something exciting for the 300th edition of Mommy and Me Monday, but well, life happens and there isn’t anything special planned….except that I’ve done something every week for 300 consecutive weeks (except one week that I just didn’t post because bad news). And, well, that’s huge for me. So, I’ll just be over here throwing a little confetti for myself and thanking you all for being along on this journey when you join in! 

What were you up to this week?

Since the button code stopped working many moons ago, I took it out. But, if you are adding your link to my link list, please, as a courtesy, add a link back to my site so people can explain and link up themselves if they’d like. After all, that’s the point of the link up! 

It’s time again for Mommy and Me Monday. Pop out from behind that camera and capture yourself in action with your kids. Check out the inaugural Mommy and Me Monday for more information.
