My day has reduced me to tears already and it's only 11am.  This time change really messed me up for some reason.  I didn't sleep all night and I was already exhausted.  This morning I dragged myself out of bed because my poor child was up and waiting for me with a disgusting diaper.  I tried to pull myself together and perk up but to no avail.  By 9am I was forcing an early nap upon my tired girl.  

Lyla picked the best week to start temper tantrums.  I gotta tell you, parenting has been easy until now.  This is by far the hardest thing I have encountered yet.  If I put her down she screams. If I put her in her playpen she screams.  If I sit down with her and get her into a toy and then go back to my computer, two minutes later she's screaming.  I try a nap again and she screams.  She is so unhappy right now if she doesn't get her way.  She has a very angry scream that tears my heart apart.  I can't give in, no way.  That is the gateway to a bratty child.

So it's been a stellar day. I feel like crap, Lyla has some issue with being away from me for more than a second. I honestly swear she's not feeling well either because I've never seen her like this.  I'm in tears because I can not handle my child, work, and my head ache today.

(3 hours later)

I took a warm shower, lit myself a fire, and am feeling better.  I got a nice warm lunch in me, Lyla took another short nap, and thanks to Jack's Big Music Show, I have some time to get some work done.  Just another day in the life of the woman trying to do it all!

Reading your blog and this post caught my attention: you're not alone...we are going through the exact same thing right now!!! So uncharacteristic of Griffin, but now that I am reading about Lyla's behavior-sounds like they are just growing up. Ick.
