It was a rough night last night. Isabella woke up more times than normal, and wanted to breastfeed to go back to sleep. Tyler had a big morning today and has to preach tonight as well, so I didn’t want to disturb him. I just kept waking up and feeding her. (Yes, I am super mommy, didn’t you know?)
The Princess sleeps with us, and I still breastfeed, even a couple times per night. (Last night was worse.) Attachment parenting has its benefits, but today I am dwelling on how exhausted I am. You know, Woe is me… Isn’t it supposed to be Mother’s Day?…Why can’t I be rich and have a live-in nanny?…all those things I
think at least once a week never think about.
It doesn’t help that Isabella won’t take a nap this afternoon. Why is it that when I want her to nap she doesn’t, but on other days, no problem? So today, I think I just plain dislike attachment parenting. (I decided to put it in bold for emphasis. I mean, we don’t use the word hate in our Christian home. So bolding it is about as bad as I can get. Ha ha ha.)
Oh, and did I mention, my back is hurting today? Yep, she is getting too heavy to wear in a sling, but yesterday she had to be held during dinner-making time. (I can just hear my mom say, Who is the adult?) One more reason I dislike attachment parenting today. (Sorry my friend, I am sure I will love you tomorrow.)
Okay that is my whine blog post. (I can whine today can’t I? Mother’s Day is tomorrow.)
