Yesterday morning, I tried to attend a Bible study at church. I thought this would be a good choice for mine and Olivia's social skills. I made it through half the class before I got a text from the nursery saying that Olivia needed to see me.
I quickly walked down the hall. I could hear her screaming - she was red in the face and wouldn't even think about calming down for the sweet nursery worker. I picked her up and she immediately stopped crying. I knew she was tired but, unlike the four beautiful babies asleep in the nursery, she wasn't having any of that.
|Picture from a different time when she got upset.|
I decided to go ahead and just take Olivia home. She wasn't crying/screaming anymore but still shuddering a little bit. I tried to put her in her seat but she started to wind up and get red in the face again. I picked her back up and carried the seat. (Olivia then decided to chew on the name tag I had on my scarf.... Now, I think there's name tag permanently stuck to it.)
|We're happy when we're well rested.|
I'm going to try again next week. Hopefully Olivia's morning nap will last right until I'm loading her into her car seat and I will get a full two hours at church. **Keep your fingers crossed for me, please.**
