I am super tired because we went to bed at 10 after DDs Christmas gala then DH woke me up at midnight when he came to bed and I didn't fall back asleep till after two. Then DD woke me up before 7 which was odd since she went to bed so late.
So I just want to take a nap. DD asked if she could sleep with me and I said no. I just needed some alone time. She kept asking and I started yelling that I just wanted to take a nap uninterrupted since she didn't let us sleep this morning. She started crying and explained she just loves me and doesn't see me during the day during the week and her feelings are hurt because I said I was stuck with her. (In conversation I had joked around about how we were stuck together during my vacation days cause school was out but I didn't realize it had hurt her feelings) and then I started bawling my eyes out.
So ya feel like a piece of crap right now. Then in her attempt to make me feel better she told me we all make mistakes like her teacher who forgot to change the date on the board.
All I can't think about is how she feels like we don't spend enough time together and then this baby is goin to come and I will have to give it my undivided attention and she won't understand why and I feel so guilty about that.

Awwww *hugs* Thats a tough spot to be in... I would just chalk it up to a mistake and maybe next time just let her nap with you, IF she actually naps. Just do your best and try to make a little more time- if you have any and when the baby comes there is no reason why your dh cant watch the baby for an hour or two while you take DD to go get ice cream or something special for just you and she. I think what you are going through is pretty normal. I mean I have actually told my kids to leave me alone, because I wasnt feeling good and they kept coming up and wating silly things, asking questions, momma this and mama that... Then after I got ten minutes of sitting and a little rest I told them I was sorry. That Mama loves them and gave them both kisses. Then they climbed on the couch and grabbed a blanket. So, it happens... I think you just have to look at the positives and just try to do it differently next time. We all have slip ups.

Im so sorry, but really it is just one sleep-deprived moment and it will pass. And she won't remember it in the long run. I am thinking of making a big brother gift kit for mark and making him a coupon book of alone time coupons. So when he wants one-on-one time with an adult, then he can exchange a coupon for some solo time with an adult and no baby. I don't think it will take many, but at least he might be able to express his needs a little better if he gives us a slp of paper and we take for him. Maybe something like this will work for her, like manicures or little walks around the neighborhood with you

I'm sorry! I swear we all have those moments. And remember how much babies sleep when they are tiny, you will still have time for her. I know the adjustment will be hard, but I promise that you will make it work.
