s-o-r-e. Hopefully we can get it clipped at the ped tomorrow. Plus, she's had a high respiration rate that the midwife was concerned about because it should clear up on it's own after the first day. When it didn't we made a trip to the children's hospital here and thankfully, it's nothing and she's just taking longer than normal to clear up. But we had to do a chest xray to rule out heart or lung abnormalities. Poor dh is going to need a vacation again after we get through this week. We are really struggling with being outnumbered by little ones. And tonight, they all want mommy. Did I say I've yet to nap today?
Didn't mean to hijack your thread...just letting you know I'm right there with you and gettingout the rescue remedy tonight.

Luckily, he is pretty good at night & I am able to get some sleep. Nursing is not going so well, but we are hanging in there. He just takes up so much of my time that I don't have time to get everything else done. I really hope things get easier. Anyone else feel the same way?

I can't help but think to myself that other mamas get 6-12 weeks maternity leave, and that seems to make me cry . But then I get a weekend with ds or a good nights sleep or a day with older son at the sitters and I breath a little easier the next couple hours
Do you have the ability to find a homeschooled mamas helper availiable during the day, or a sitter for the older kiddos? This really helps me!
Hugs mama, this to shall pass, right????
