Tim bought me a box of chocolate AND made his futon bed in the office this morning. Is it my lucky day or what? I woke up this morning with a bit of congestion but it’s since gone. I think we all had a mini cold. Oh I did take Morella to the doctor last Friday and she was fine, absolutely nothing wrong with her. The doctor did say the classic “It’s a virus,” blah blah blah, and that she might show signs of congestion over the weekend. She didn’t though, but we did.
Anyway. I am stressed out with this whole parenting thing. Morella is not eating. Is it because she carries her sippy cup around her as a glorified bottle? Is she drinking too much milk and not having enough room leftover to eat? Is she sick again (Tim said she is following the progression of his illness)?
Hm. Tim just said no. She is sick. She is coughing a lot tonight. But is that because she is sick or because of the one hour screaming tantrum she threw this afternoon during a major nap fail? Has she given up naps for good? IF that is the case why did she fall asleep in the car five minutes into it this afternoon?
Is Athena ever going to sleep through the night? Is she waking at 12 because I am going to bed then? (I don’t think so because on nights I go to bed late she still wakes up at that time to cry and eat). How am I ever going to get them to share a room together? The other night she was up every TWO hours. If she was in Morella’s or another room, I wouldn’t have gotten any sleep at all. How will she ever get Morella’s toddler/bed crib since Morella is so attached to her bed? Will we have to buy a toddler bed even though we have a perfectly fine trundle bed with a rollout that they could use? Will she never get to use it because she will be in my bed until she is one like our parents did (my Mom and Tim’s Mom both kept their babies in bed until 1).
Sigh. It’s so different having a bottle fed baby (with thickened EBM) versus a nursing baby. And a first born versus a second born.
Oh there is my laptop battery telling me knock it off, watch some TV and calm the fuck down.
