Hanging On

The kids are totally kicking my ass right now. This whole "getting up in the middle of the night" is taking its toll on me and my sanity. Not just feeding them which is okay - it's the other random "I need soothing" moments that rob you of your sleep and do the most damage. Both kids are having bedtime bottle strikes and not eating well at all - resulting in a vicious cycle of multiple evening wake-ups and super early breakfasts. Today they are completely off routine/schedule and given my level of exhaustion I'm a mess as is my house. I'm going to chalk this up as an off-day and just try to survive (no schedule, breastfeeding (which I'm having issues with again) and sleep efforts). Tomorrow is another day and I hope that one will put us back on track. Husband is also bringing me lunch - a perk of having him work so close to home.

Ugh. I hate days like this. They do pass, I swear. But they really suck at the time. I hope tomorrow is better!

Oh, we've all had those days! Hope today is easier. On days like that, I always find it helps to get out of the house, even if it's just to hit the drive-thru at DD or go to Target. Or call up a friend and say, "I'm coming over!".
