Bedtime Antics

PK was excessively tired tonight. Just about every little thing set
her off. And just about every little thing made her giggle with
delight as she ran around her room like a chicken with it's head cut
off.

After struggling to get her into the bath, she finally settled down
and started playing with her bath toys. By the time I was done with
her bath, PK didn't want out. She flailed and screamed as I got her to
her crib. She flailed and screamed as I got her diaper on. Then she
stood up, still screaming and still excessively upset. Until...she
suddenly stopped. And reached out to my boobs. And squeezed them,
while saying "Boobs!" as she giggled with delight. I'm glad that she
still finds some use for them! Joking aside, I have noticed that PK
has taken a sudden interest in my boobs. I'm not sure why, but the
only thing I can think of is that maybe, just maybe, she ACTUALLY
remembers that once upon a (short) time, these boobs were actually a
source of food. I guess I'll never know. Should i find this behavior
to be completely disturbing? Maybe my friends who don't have kids
might. I, on the other hand, find this absolutely hilarious. Who needs
SNL when you've got a constant source of amusement in the bizzarre
behavior of a toddler?

To top off PK's Night 'o Antics, we had an interesting storytime.
After I get her into her pajamas and sleep sack, I always carry PK
over to the glider in her room to read her a story while she enjoys
some nighttime milk. Tonight, however, PK would have none of that.
Instead, she stayed in her crib as I read her a few stories. One of
them is a story called "Counting Kisses", which PK and the hubby got
for me as a Mother's Day gift. Every time she heard the word "kiss",
she would stand up and give me a kiss on the forehead. I'll be honest
- I still often get mopey over whether or not PK loves me enough,
especially when she woke up on Mother's Day asking for daddy. But
moment like these make all of my insecurities go away, and make me
realize that I am very very loved.
