20th of January

Today we finally ventured out of the house.  We met up with my friend from the other day who has the young boy the same age as Ted, and we went to the Recorders exhibition at MCA.

It was loads of fun.  Too much fun, really.  Harriet was whirling around like a dervish and screaming like a banshee, then had a total meltdown when we had to leave.  *sigh*  I don't think the reasonable sleep she had last night (not great, just reasonable) is enough to have made up for the terrible week's sleep before it.


Tonight she was scared about something she kept thinking of in her (cartoon, totally innocent) puzzle book.  She was so scared she came down to the lower bunk where I was feeding Ted to sleep and snuggled up to my back.  After a while I gently removed Ted who was still awake and laid up in her top bunk with her, snuggled up, arms around each other.


"I love you so much" I whispered.
"I love you so much as well" she whispered back.

Deep breath.  Get up again tomorrow.  Smile. Love. Nurture.

And no doubt an internal scream or three as well.
