Day 315: 1.19.13
Yesterday, Sofie came back home from my mom’s and I went down to the ferry to meet and pick her up.
Jason and I made it our goal to get the vacant apartment unit in our building rented, so we held an “Open House” at our building, not a super huge turn out, but I think we found a renter. Crossing our fingers, any way.
Later that day, Jason went out to run some errands while Sofie and I stayed home. She was a bit of a cranky girl most of the evening so it was a bit of a difficult night for me. She hadn’t napped all day and was clearly very tired, and as patient as I wanted to be, I was frankly tired too. It’s been a bit difficult for us to settle into a good sleep pattern since we moved here (I talk more about it in my weekly video update here), and it’s been starting to catch up to me. I find myself to be way more irritable and short-tempered, and I feel bad when I feel like I can’t handle Sofie sometimes because of it.
So, it was a bit of a rough evening, but Sofie and I eventually worked things out and were in a good place by bed time. I understand that sometimes things are going to be tough raising a toddler, but I except the challenge and hope I can better myself by working through the hard days like yesterday.
Poor cranky, tired Sofie, she was ready for bed.
