That is so HILARIOUS- I laughed out loud when I read all this (from relief that I'm not alone in this!!) because that's exactly what I was going to write today.... OHHHHHH MAN. Thank you for sharing that Reality slice. I felt so bad when dh came home I was crying because I didn't want to play or nurse or even be in the room with ds.. who is such a little sweetheart and says "I sick too"
And.. anyone else feeling absolutely vomitous just smelling a wet/poopy nappy?
Ds came in to me this morning (to the room where I've banished myself since
from the family bed
because I don't want anyone touching me in the night) saying "Mummy, poo poo." Oh, good morning! Yargh!
It makes it all so much easier to know I'm not the only mama in the world going through this RIGHT NOW. We are doing the best we can! Our best looks really different right now, but it's what we can do. Trying to stay in today with my thoughts really helps too. When I feel myself worrying about being able to handle this life, this new baby, I think HANG ON! That's 8 months from now. I'll handle that day when it gets here. Today I'll handle.. choosing a good show for ds to watch so I can rest.. and breathing through my mouth only so I don't smell anything nasty... and letting this blah time just Be. It will pass!
As dh said today "You have to look after yourself! Put in that DVD and stop feeling guilty about it!"
Anyone know any good guilt-erasing mantras?
Love to all
Thinking of you
