Last Friday I told the kids to get their shoes on so we could go to a library and Ember initially had on two pink boots but then switched one out for a black snow boot. I asked her if she was sure that’s what she wanted to wear and she said, “Yes! I wearing two boots!”
The kids were excited to visit a new library. Both Payson and Ember asked me at different times before we got there if there was going to be a new castle. They were both bummed when I said no. They liked the new library anyway!
Me, Sierra, and Payson went into the storytime room. I watched Ember through the window. She was SO cute when she noticed we were gone. She was looking around seriously, spotted me, grinned, and jumped up and ran to us.
By this time the library was about to close. Remember when we went to Sam’s Club and they were closing? I never blogged about it but it freaked Ember out. So when she heard they were closing the library she got hysterical and kept begging me to leave the library right then so that we didn’t get trapped inside! I kept explaining we still had time and that they wouldn’t close the doors with us inside but nothing calmed her down. She kept looking to all the doors and watching the library workers intensely and every time they walked anywhere or anytime someone went through a door she started crying!
She was REALLY happy when we left the library and weren’t trapped inside after all! lol
Once “home” I took a picture of the somewhat clean hotel room because since we’ve been here it’s only been clean one other time. The four older kids are SO FREAKING MESSY. It’s like a bomb went off in this room 99% of the time.
Ember, as she always does these days, cried for mommy milky. I really loathe extended breastfeeding and wish I’d weaned her a long, long time ago. Like maybe a year ago! Breastfeeding a child with teeth is incredibly annoying. It feels horrible and I hate every second of it. Not to mention, I need to regulate my milk supply for Everett and even one preschooler nursing “session” boosts my supply up too much for Everett to handle. And… he always wants to nurse, I don’t even have the time to sit down and breastfeed her if I wanted to.
Anyway, Allan wants me to just cut her off cold turkey and truthfully I’d love that, but… with her crazy life and all the other transitions and adjustments I just can’t fully do it yet. I do say no most of the time but once every day or two I give in and let her nurse.
