Woke up at 4:00 am, Baby shortly after. She ate for an hour and a half.
After breakfast with my husband I tried to go back to sleep for a while with said baby. She wasn’t interested. We both cried.
Cup of tea and second breakfast. She had more milk and fell asleep just long enough for me to almost get a whole shower in. Went through every ¾ sleeved top in my closet trying to find one that fits now that I’m nursing. No luck.
Made it out the door with the kitchen still a mess just at the time the moms’ group we were going to was starting. Decided en route to skip it this week and just get the grocery shopping done.
Currently parked outside the grocery store trying to decide what to do now that the baby fell asleep pretty much just as we were turning into the parking lot. May have cried a second time as I’m just a bit too tired to cope well with even small upsets at the moment.
Over my years as a nanny I’ve told so many moms so many times how much harder their job was than mine. I had no idea how right I was.
