It’s always been ironic to me that something that should bring a couple together like the birth of a baby, can also push that same couple to the brink of separation. No, John and I are not getting a divorce, trust me, but I’m not going to lie, sometimes the thought has crossed my mind and even come out of my mouth during hormonal induced screaming matches…Tweet
I’ve heard of Tuesdays as being referred to as “Terrible Tuesdays” and I now see why. Even though my day wasn’t necessarily TERRIBLE, everyone around me seems to have had a terrible Tuesday themselves.
My Tuesday wasn’t terrible, but it was pretty tough. Already I sit here and it is 9 p.m and I feel like the day just clobbered me. I am exhausted. Here was my Tough Tuesday in a nutshell.
6:00 a.m wake up with baby girl after waking up a few times during the night for diaper changes, feeding sessions, and medication administration. Last night I played the good wife and let J sleep because I know how run down he is feeling as well.Tweet
So as you can tell by this update being two days late, (my weeks turn over on Fridays) things have been extremely busy around our household. This past week has been tough. With battling the baby blues on top of getting little sleep, and also struggling to get rid of this horrid case of Thrush that both Kya and I have after my run of antibiotics for my mastitis, I’ve been a wreck.Tweet
So now that I have my third child under my belt…that sounded wrong, but you know what I mean, I feel as though I should share with some of you first time moms/dads some things that I wish I would have known the first time around. Now when I say first time around I do mean when I was 18, so not only was that a LONG time ago, but I was also at the very most naive and unknowing place in my life so in other words…there were a lot of things that surprised me.
Because there is too much to say in one post, I thought I would just pick out some of the things that I wasn’t expecting 7 years ago after the birth of my first daughter (so weird to think I actually have two girls now!). Continue readingTweet
I feel like I get this question a lot since having Kya in some way, shape, or form.
-”How’s the family doing with the new baby?”
-”How are the kids adjusting to the new addition?”
-”Is Wy loving being a big brother?”
-”Does A love having a little sister?”
-”You guys getting any sleep?”
My usual short answers to these questions are usually positive because if I were to say anything negative it would start a longer conversation that I don’t think the mail man wants to get into, or the nice lady at church wants to hear about.Tweet
