In addition to his cold, C was having a bad teething day today. I don’t understand why I’m so tired, because we didn’t even leave home today. I think it’s emotional exhaustion and frustration. When C wasn’t whining, he was screaming. The only time that he was quiet was when I went against one of my fundamental parenting philosophies – we cuddled up in the bed and watched television. Don’t judge me! A mother needs a little silence! It’s not like I can just leave the room to get some peace when we live in a one-bedroom apartment. Maybe it’s okay to do that if the alternative is losing your mind? *sigh*
So now that C is in bed for the night, I have some brownies in the oven. This will relieve my stress in two ways:
1. Baking relaxes me.
2. Chocolate! Need I say more?
What do you miss: Being able to do anything without getting tired! Putting on pants without struggling. Being able to put on my own shoes (non-slip-ons, that is!).
What are you looking forward to: Hubster and I are going to go to a movie this week.
What was the BEST part of last week? While Hubster was out of town for work, my parents came to visit. It was great to see them and have company – it would have been a VERY long, lonely weekend without them!!!
