~ It takes someone strong, to make someone strong.~😰💙🌈
Baypearl had an awesome day today having her friend over for a play bought her such joy but once her friend went home she unfortunately was so over loaded she screamed for her I pad, bottle and a nappy on, jumped into bed hiding under the doona. But she just couldn't get settled into what normally is her "Happy place". The next 40 minutes that followed were the biggest challenge I've had to endure so far with Baypearl. She was screaming, head banging against the floor, holding her ears, spitting, pulling her hands out of her mouth like she had something in there. Pulling her hair out and refusing to allow mum to hold her. I couldn't get her into the shower which she normally loves and I was not able to pick her up without her punching me profoundly which isn't like Baypearl. I have learnt with jayke to keep my cool and not allow my emotions to take over as I know this isn't really Baypearl it's the sensory issues.
Finally after the neighbors thinking I was murdering my own child I was able to give her a quick two second shower and dress her in her normally favourite pjs well not tonight they were annoying the crap out of her. I wrapped her in a big blanket and laid her on my chest. So here we are in this moment of chaos looking at the camera thinking to myself if I stay strong my child will be stronger. 🦋💙🌈
