Not a Great Start to My Week...

Tuesday, September 25, 2018

I've been slacking... My 4 month old hasn't been sleeping through the night, and therefore, neither have I. I've been in zombie mode...not really caring what I eat or how much/little I move. Today, baby had his 4 month vaccinations. He's in so much pain tonight. He cried, nonstop, for more than three hours. I tried everything to soothe him until I broke down in tears. This is my 3rd baby (I also have two bonus kids that I've known since they were babies, so I guess you could say this is my 5th.) You'd think I'd know what I was doing by now...but I sure feel like I don't. So, while sobbing, I texted my husband, who was working late, to PLEASE bring chocolate. Never mind that I've given up sweets. Tonight is an exception, and I really don't care. He brought me a bag of Hershey's mini candy bars. I wolfed a few down. Then I went for a walk. I feel somewhat better, albeit exhausted. Tomorrow is another day. I'll do better. But right now, I'm not too happy with myself. I'll go sleep it off, and pray my sweet little boy sleeps through the night so he can heal and feel better. Good night.

    You do what you need to do. No regrets; they'll eat you up faster than the chocolate will.
    Every child is different, so no predictions.
    Our doctor would have us give our daughter liquid Tylenol abou 30 min before our appointment for shots. I say that did help.

    Hugs. I hope that you can find some time to get a little bit of rest. Those first months are tough even when you've been through it before. Hang in there.

    I can't offer any help or suggestions, just a virtual Hug! emoticon emoticon

    Nothing like a baby to cause a grown woman to melt down! Hope there is sleep in your future. Hugs and prayers

    Parenthood is challenging. I hope everything goes well soon.
