I finally told my husband that I couldn't take it anymore and that I was going to glue all of cabinets shut so Daisy could roam freely and so I wouldn't have to take an olympic leap into the kitchen a million times a day..plus I kinda missed having my measly four chairs at my dining room table..the other two get covered in air drying laundry. Where is a girl supposed to sit?
So, my hubs, realizing his wife had reached the end of her infinite rope of patience (did you know infinite had an end!!) stepped up to the awesome hubby plate and found me super long child proof latches that WORKED. We got to put the chairs back at the table and moved our ottoman back into the center of the living room so our feet could actually use it for a change and AHHHHHH that is what it means to destressify my friends!!! Daisy cries a lot less, she is happier and thus Momma is HAPPIER!!! IS there anything in your life that could be done to destressify it a bit cuz I'll tell you what...it's WORTH it to take that little extra time to get er done! lol.
Case in point..road block #1 Large Ottoman hurdle blocking side B into the living room. Annoying and made the baby very angry which made mommy a frazzled mess.
And road block #2 - Two large dining chairs laying on their sides to block side A into the kitchen. She is happy here but, only because she has company on her side of the jail. Not so happy when she is alone over there. haha Oh and by the way Daisy's smile below in the first picture is what I endearingly refer to as her TURTLE smile. She raises her head high off her shoulders and all of a sudden she has a neck...like a turtle. Do you see it too? hehe
