Which makes me think that Lucy needs a little sibling, like, yesterday. Someone to help her deal with the fact that maybe not everything has to be All Lucy All The Time. Or to, you know, force her into that. And then again - another baby? Who in their right mind...? How the heck...?
ANYWAY, I think the neediness partially stems from the weird schedule for the month of May. I've been working a lot of evenings and Sundays, and Lu is just a real stickler for routine.
Yesterday I realized how far out of her routine I have gotten when I gave her her nightly bath (for the first time in ???) and I let the water out. Mistake number one. Evidently, LUCY lets the water out. Ok, ok, lesson learned. Then she says "Bye, bye water!" (normal) and then, "There goes the VORTEX, Mama!"
Oh dear Lord, child, you've been spending altogether too much time with your father.
