Today Lizzy received her second dose of DTaP 1M. Her behavior has been pretty good. She did have a minor meltdown while dinner was being prepared. She wanted to eat dinner before it was ready.
She spied the rigatoni on the counter and wanted to eat at that moment. Grunting and screaming began and we appeased her with explanations and some peanuts. After that small fire was extinguished she enjoyed her meal and continued to play with her toys.
Matthew and Lizzy were playing together today by chasing each other around the house. It is very rainy today so I indulged their behavior. It was a real pleasure to see them interacting with one another instead of fighting. As stated before these two have issues from time to time.
Lizzy has been very affectionate to her Grandma. She goes up to her through out the day and gets a hug and a kiss. It is very touching. Lizzy is really doing pretty well with this clearing. I thought it would be more problematic. Thank God that it hasn’t been.
I am still battling my cracked tooth. I go in for a root canal tomorrow. Hopefully I will get some relief. I am spent, tired and in constant pain. When it rains it pours. Thank God Lizzy has not been difficult and she is not in any discomfort. When she is my heart becomes very heavy and it is very difficult to bounce back. We are only given what we can handle.
I just reflected on one of my favorite quotations by Mother Theresa. It always helps me to feel better.
“I know God won’t give me anything I can’t handle. I just wish he didn’t trust me so much.”
— Mother Teresa
With God’s strength one can do anything. It is our humanness that gets in the way and keeps us from achieving. We are our worst enemies, how unfortunate for us.
As of 8 pm Lizzy is doing fine and all of the little ones have been bathed and ready for bed. I hope for an uninterrupted night’s sleep. If not, I will reflect on Mother Teresa’s quote and lean on the Lord. Too bad I did not do that at the beginning of the day. I never learn. Thank God I get another chance tomorrow.
Sweet Dream to All
