Sunday was not a fun day

Sunday is supposed to be family day, the day where you get to spend time together and do nice things that don't involve cleaning something or doing laundry. Christopher works 6 days a week so on Sunday he wants to go places and see something besides home, and even though I am a total hombeody, I go  and usually I have a nice time.... not this time. Mia has been going through a phase of whiny brat, that coupled with teeth coming in, turns her into the biggest pain in the ass this side of the Universe. I feel really bad for her and I try to make her feel as comfortable as I can, but after a while you start to laugh and make fun -- at least I do. It's that or jump out of the running vehicle. Christopher had the idea to go see if we could find an organic farmer and pick up fruit and vegetables which by the way he doesn't eat so I don't know what is up with that. We found this cute place in Dudenhofen that was packed with all kinds of goodness.









 
 I just had to take a picture of this plant and if you watch the Vamipre Diaries then you will understand why I did. In case you can't read German, it is "vervaine".

  

 
After we left and had the cranky pants finally in the car, she fell asleep for a blissful half an hour until we had to stop for gas. 


 
I even let her play in my hair so she would calm down, but even after she had me looking like a scare crow she was still a basketcase.

Teething+ cold+ growthspurt= Miss Cranky Pants

I forgot what this was like when you have to carry a baby that weighs 20 pounds around all day with snot running down her face.
Thank you, Motherhood, for once again adding to my growing supply of gray hair.
