Just one of those days!

Do you ever have just one of those days. It started the night before....I put my older two boys to be and went to get my little guy settled down and ready for bed. Not even 10 minutes later my oldest comes walking into my room and announces "I just can't fall asleep" the baby gets startled. He was nursing and falling asleep,  I tell my oldest to go lay back down and give himself a chance to fall asleep. From that point on my little one was up every 1 1/2 - 2 hr either nursing and/or fussy from teething.  There was also a really bad thunders storm most of the night and my 7yr old got woken up and was scared so he ended up camping out in my room. Need less to say it was a fun night. Every one was up by 6:00 and our mornings are usually hectic but my oldest was kinda outta it this morning.  He needed a lot of redirection to get ready. After all the craziness to get ready for school it was time to drop the boys off at school as I was getting the baby in his car seat I hear a loud squirt (doesn't that always seem to happen when your running late and have to be some where at a certain time) so I go to change his diaper and as I'm putting a clean one under his bum he pees all over. So then I have to do a quick clean up and change with 10 minutes left to get the boys to school on time (we made it just in case your wondering). The baby is crying and having  fit on the ride to and from the school. We get home I try and comfort him, he's tired and hungry so I nurse him and he takes a nap on me. Skip to a couple hrs later and its already lunch time by the time he wakes up. We do a diaper change, lunch for mommy, load of laundry, dishes from lunch/breakfast, get part of my dinner prepping done, read stories/kinda play (he's really fussy), nurse some more and then he takes a 30min nap before the boys get home from school. Then its craziness again with homework, snack, dinner, baths. Finally its bedtime again even though I didn't get to run errands or do much of anything I'm tired! We'll see how tomorrow goes hopefully a little better:)

  5. I completely understand those nights where your up every other hour nursing. Its hard. But in the end it's so worth it. Especially when they look up at you and give you that smile. Your doing great, just remember that!

  6. Hi Kayla. I agree it is so worth it and nursing smiles are the best:) Thanks so much!
