I am without MOJO this week. It's been a rough week, mainly because the beautiful babe has decided on 5am starts, shortened her naps and has decided that nothing she USED to be interested in, interests her now. So it's a long day of finding new things to entertain her - lots of dancing, reading, walks, park trips (now that the weather allows again) and visits to people and weird things. I will let her play with just about anything (sharp, pointy objects excluded. Just.) if it entertains her for a minute. I don't mind how messy she gets - I never did though, I'd rather she play / explore / have a good time, everything can be washed, including babies. So sure Rubes, here is a packet of flour and when you get bored with that, you will find the cocoa and vegemite behind. Nothing else is getting done. So last night I put her in bed and said to DrMr, I am having an early, early night and was just dropping off to dream land when the crying started. We all eventually went to sleep after midnight. With another 5am start. I say to you UGH! And more importantly, this coffee is AWFUL.
Oh yeah, Rubes is getting teeth. Um... ALL OF THEM at once. Her molars seem to be coming though, there are white bits on the surface there and her canines are swollen and it's only JUST starting to feel rough around those first front milky teeth. She's doing it all completely backwards.
I have a TON of new toys and things for her, but they are packed away for her birthday and Christmas, neither of which is very far away. I know this is very normal and we will figure it out, but I thought maybe the LEGIONS of experienced MAMAS out there could share their favourite games / activities that they played with their ones and almost ones out there? I think I need some new ideas.
I always had plans to join the local Steiner playgroup (it's craftier than the normal one) when she was 12 months, but I think we might start earlier as she does love playing with other little dudes.
