well, I was feeling fine and dandy until struggling with milk supply issues and then having trouble with my 5 yr old son at kindergarten.
I feel like I'm either nursing or pumping, 24/7 -- and we still have to break out the occasional 3 or so ounces of formula to top her off. I'm so frustrated by the whole breastfeeding relationship right now that I could cry. Wait a second, I do cry.
My boobs hurt. My girl is thriving, so that is wonderful, but I would love things to smooth out soon. The midwife wants me to use an SNS instead of bottles, and for all that's holy, I can't imagine juggling that in addition to everything else, and I'm pretty committed.
I can't remember when I last showered.
I'm pretty much a neat freak and my house is a disgusting pigsty right now.
I got a note home with my kiddo yesterday that says his behavior is causing him to fail. KINDERGARTEN. The poor kiddo has had so much change for him in the last 6 months, and he does not do well with change, and he has some sensory issues and appears ADHD to most people, and a little bit of patience with him would go a long way, but his teacher really has had it up to her ears with him, and I am at such a loss. I have no idea what to do. I sat and cried for a half an hour over it last night. Crying helps nothing, I know. But seriously. He is 5. He is hyper. He is dealing with his mom getting married, moving, getting a new sibling and starting kindergarten, all within 6 months. And then he goes to school and gets sent to time out constantly. Whenhe gets tired of times outs and gets rowdy, he gets sent to the principal's office. The kid is miserable. It breaks my heart into a thousand pieces.
So yeah, I feel yucky too.
