I'm covered in it.
Which is better than the other bodily fluids I've worn a time or two (or twelve) since this little boy came into our world!
I've already decided that labor and delivery is the easy part of this whole mom job thing. Don't get me wrong. I love being a mother, but if I told you that I've loved every minute of it I would be lying. I love most minutes, but not every minute. You know? I really don't mind the whole spit up thing. Or those other bodily fluids. Everything is washable, you know? But sleep. Sleep is another story.
Hands down the hardest thing for me to do is pull my tired self from the bed to wake up a sleeping baby to eat. It's so much easier to get up when he's crying for food -but that rarely happens. Turns out my little guy loves his sleep as much as him parent's love theirs. Which I seriously hope this Baby Wise business ends up paying off in however long because WOW I'm exhausted. Completely happy, but exhausted. Totally in love with this sweet little face, but exhausted.
Which is also why the "Mark All As Read" button has become a new best friend of mine. Along with my washing machine and Lansinoh cream and the Boppy. The bink though... well it's a love/ hate thing with us. We try to avoid it mostly.
Anyhow. If I don't get a shower right now the neighbors might start complaining. Also... if I can manage even thirty minutes of sleep, I'm taking it because last night was (another) LONG night,
and I fully expect tonight to be the same. And the night after that one too...
