What a day

So today was a tough day for me... I could feel that Addis was not right and that something was wrong. He didn't laugh or scream as much as he normally does and he began to cry hisraricly when he saw his aunt. I guess its true what they say about separation anxiety since he was constantly watching me all day. There were certain times when I did leave the room that he didn't fuss but for the most part he was sad and tired. He took a 1 hour morning nap and then a 3 hour afternoon nap and still went to bed at 8:30pm.i am glad he is sleeping peacefully now since we did have a nice playtime before bed where he did give me lots of giggles and screams. We did have fun at the mall with my sisters though.. CeCe measured his foot so we know what size he is for summer shoes and we had lunch and shopped. We don't do that a lot.. I cant even remember the last time the 3 of us did that actually.. I really enjoyed it.
On another note, I have been cleaning like mad for the last hour or so just because the inlaws are coming to visit for a bit tomorrow. What is it about them coming that makes me clean every crevice of this house? Its not like the house was dirty but some things needed to be dusted and the living room needed to be vacuumed but I could have spot cleaned but I did areas where they probably wont even see. Well at least I have a clean house and had the energy to do it right?

sorry to hear Addis had a rough weekend. hopefully i can move back to london and babysit him - even if he cries i'll still love him ot pieces :)

ps. don't you dare feel guilty about this!! I'm sure you think his sadness and bad day is your fault - since you're such a devoted mommy - but it's not and he needs to learn that you might not always be there with him physically...
give it time and he'll learn you're always there when it's important :)
