Anyway, there were a few blips on the radar scale that made me smile.
Feeling really overwhelmed by my motherly responsibilities such as cleaning up after their breakfast mess, changing the nasty poopy night time diaper and so on, I decided to bathe River early Saturday morning instead of the other things knowing that always produces a smile. It worked.
She kept trying to drink the water. She was successful a few times.
Although she looks mad, she was actually screaming with delight and clapping. She did this repeatedly and sounded like a howler monkey. She was having fun.
Bath time is always good for a smile.
