I posted in my mommy forum that I have been worried about her fine motor skill development but after Rich and I had a talk last night I'm much less worried. She's a stubborn gal, and she'll do what she wants, when she wants, at her own pace.
We tried coloring again this morning and she wasn't into it at all. She preferred to carry the sketch book around and hold it up for approval. Oh well.
Yesterday she took a nap from 4pm-5pm, which I thought would suck, but she asked to go to bed at 743, so that was fine. I had been fearing a 9pm bedtime, and since the season finale of Deadliest Catch started at 9 I thought I would be inconvenienced. Snort.
Today we have no plans as we still can't go anywhere due to the lack of a vehicle. I can't wait to get another car. This just plain sucks.
The other reason I've been feeling good today is because I took my first full dose of Lamictal in 3 days. I had to cut it in half the past 2 days because I couldn't afford any more pills until the 31st. Stupid, I know, but there ya have it. You gotta do what you gotta do.
It's amazing how quickly the effects of that can be felt. I had low level depression and felt like the world was just awful. After 1 day that started. Today I'm pretty content, and I know that things are going to work out ok on all of our sucky fronts. Especially the whole car situation. We have possibly gotten another offer to buy the truck. A mechanic that's a friend of Rich's friend buys broken down vehicles, fixes them up, and then sells them. THAT would be ideal, even over the kid who was interested first. I'd really prefer not to sell that kid a potential death trap, and even though he says he "knows someone" who can fix it I just don't trust that idea.
I should really clean the bathroom today, but I can't do that unless Rich is home to keep Livvie occupied. She always wants to follow me into the bathroom, and the last thing she needs is to breathe in Tilex. So I guess I'll wait.
In the meantime, she is in her crib crying pre-nap, and if we even get a nap today I'll be super surprised.
Have a great Wednesday everyone.
