Dear Wrong Side of the Bed,
Thank you for having me wake up with you today. However, I really want to be in a better mood. So please, try to avoid me tomorrow.
Crabby and Irritable,
Dear Sinus Infection,
It was so dear of you to think of me as a host to take over and torture. However, it has been several weeks of feeling like complete SHEEEEEEET. So if you could leave now and let the anti-biotics do their things I would SOOO appreciate it. Kay? Thanks!
I know you don’t feel good because you have the nasty sinus infection AND you just had your immunizations yesterday AND the meany doctor made me take away your “paci” AND you are teething. For this I understand why you feel justified in just whining and being all around crabby all day and even in the wee hours of the night (12:30am; 1:15am; 2:40am; 3:30am!?!?!) when you scream bloody murder for me to come and get you. But, if I could interject… I just don’t think that we need to keep this up much longer. Ok? Mommy loves you but she needs some sleep and a tiny bit of time without you clinging to the side of me like a growth.
Love you baby!
Dear Monkey’s Pediatrician,
I really think you are awesome. And I know you are *ahem* older and have been doing this pediatrician gig since 1812, however I do think maybe times are changing a bit. So when we had this conversation yesterday:
Pediatrician: Is he still throwing a lot of temper tantrums?
MamaCass: Yes, pretty bad. He even has begun hitting me in frustration sometimes.
Pediatrician: Well when he does that you need to smack his hand and give him a stern NO.
MamaCass: Well how can I teach him not to hit if I hit him? Isn’t that a mixed message?
Pediatrician: *soft giggle* Well that is just how it’s done.
So when I went on my merry way home after our appointment, I thought I would give it a try when he decided to smack me. However, I got the same response when I tried swatting his butt last time (per your suggestion) for throwing a tantrum. He laughed at me and ran off. So my question is this… Is this a typical response? And is this the desired result? Cause I am just not seeing the benefit.
Confused on technique,
Dear Crazy person that searched for “my brain damaged husband in diapers” yesterday to get to my blog,
Feeling a little less crazy about myself now thanks to you,
I am strongly considering leaving you because you are just not Cassi user friendly. Why must you make it so hard for me to make any simple changes??? Maybe someone *ahem* (yeah, I’m talkin to you!) could give me some input as to why they prefer Blogger over you. Or why they prefer you over Blogger.
In mental tug of war,
Dear Drop Dead Diva,
I am so glad that Lifetime has shown you to me! You are my new favorite show. Brooke Elliott portrays the Deb/Jane character SOOOO good! Not to mention she is completely gorgeous! I am completely in love with your show! It is quirky, it is funny and it has serious issues too. All around a great package.
Viewer for life,
Have a fantastic weekend!!!
Thanks for reading!!
