5 Must Haves...Talia

Talia was tagged by Kimmy....this picture represents her 5 "must haves". It really could be classified under the 5 "B's"...Blankie, Binkie, Bear, Bella, and a Baby. These are the things she has to have before she will go to sleep most nights. The blankie and binkie are the dealbreakers,'s trauma when we don't have them. Although I know she's at that age when I should start taking her binkie from her, she's my last, and when she's upset, she needs it. I just can't make myself take it from her yet.

Lately however, she's had a 6th must have...her Mommy. I've worked an intense schedule the last couple of weeks, with many of my days clustered into a short span. On Sunday night I got called off...briefly. I got called back in rather quickly, but apparently my poor little daughter never recovered, and spent the rest of the night crying for mommy.

I feel like there's not enough time to get everything done anymore...for the last 4 months or so, I've been getting called off from work at least 1 shift a pay period. I didn't realize how much time that extra day gave me. Now that we're busy again, and the opportunity for call off will be less available, I'm having trouble figuring out how to get everything I want to done. princess needs her mommy....more later.

Jen, as you know, I'm old, but I learned that when she's ready, Talia will stop needing that binki and no stress for mom. And another thing-I learned last year, You're never going to get it all done sooo just enjoy what you can, when you can. Just advice from a sage old woman. Love you.
