Save Me

I am about to lose my mind. I have had absolutely not one minute of sleep tonight. It is 4am and my baby is upstairs screaming. I'm taking a 10 minute break.

Please before someone tells me that he really isn't that bad, please spend every freaking night awake with him.

I'm losing my mind, right now.

Well...last night was the brightest night of the year because of the moon. I got home and still had diapers on the line and it was so light outside (at 11pm) that I didn't need any light at all out there. I was so freaked out about it that I didn't even attempt bed until 2am, which is of course when Jaden started in. grrrrr

Let's face it Mandy. Sometimes babies just suck.

I hope you got some sleep last night! Also, this entry reminded me I wanted to clarify something ever since McD's w/Christy.

I can't speak for anyone else who has said this, but when I said "he's not that bad" I never meant to discount what *you* go through. I just know that for me, when my kids do something that is bothersome to others, it stresses me out, usually moreso than when they do that same thing with/to me. For example -- when Rian jacked Jaden w/the drumstick -- if he had done that to anyone in my family, I would have been like "Oops, sorry . . . now get over it". But that he did that to Jaden, upset me so much. By saying "he's not that bad" I just mean to tell you -- if you're dealing with any *additional* stress due to how others might be perceiving him (me included in "others") -- please throw that stress away when it comes to me. Because Jaden doesn't bother me. Even though I know I didn't experience him full-blown. That's all I meant. Not that I think what I experienced is the only thing *you* experience.

In any case, prayers to you for rest!!

We have had that kind of day too. Can you just ship him up here and they can scream together??

I've been thinking about you. I hope things are improving!
