From Princess To Paisenator...

I should've known a day that started out as perfect as Friday was too good to be true. The sun was shining, birds were chirping, life was good :-) Paise and I laughed, played, napped and even squeezed in a afternoon stroll to the mall. All day she wore an ear to ear smile in her normal Princess Paisley fashion, lol. When Justin got home from work, we packed up her things and headed to Aunt Dee & Uncle Tim's house for a fun filled weekend (that was the plan anyway, haha). No sooner did we get home, showered, and ready for bed and the phone rang. It was Dee, my little princess had unleashed the "Paisenator." (That is the ever so affectionate nickname PawPaw Frank gave her that's only used when a major hissy fit is in progress.) We've only ever seen this side of her a hand full of times but, if you've never experienced it in person, it can be overwhelming to say the least. I knew it had to be bad for Auntie Dee to call, so like any good parents would do, we jumped out of bed and raced to the rescue. Bless her little heart, she was definitely not a happy camper. No matter what we tried, bottle, bath, bed, bouncing, you name it my poor baby was inconsolable. Needless to say, we brought her home kicking and screaming and kicking and screaming and... Finally, several hours later, (around midnight to be exact, BIG YAWN!) silence at last! It wouldn't have been so bad if both of us didn't have to get up at 4:30 AM for work (HUGE YAWN!!! LOL!) It was a beating! I can't figure out how I used to be able to go out three our four nights a week on little if any sleep and survive. I guess I ain"t as good as I once was, motherhood can be brutal! Good news is, that Paise woke up a completely new baby this morning and she seems to be feeling well. I just pray she's retired the Paisenator for a while, haha! Despite our sleepiness, we're SO thankful and blessed to have friends like Aunt Dee and Uncle Tim who still agreed to watch our baby girl even if she can be a stinker sometimes! Fingers crossed tonight goes smoother than last!
