Day 3 of my mom not being here to help, and things sure are different. Today started off as what I thought was going to be the worst day, but quickly turned around and has been the best day with P.
She woke up around 1 this morning and as hard as I tried, I could not soothe her back to sleep. So I fed her and thankfully she fell right back asleep by 2.
But then at 7 she was up again and clearly hungry. So I fed her as usual and prayed she’d go back to sleep for a while. It took her a while, but by 8:30 she was asleep and I gladly took this as time for me to nap too. To my surprise, she was still sleeping when I woke up at 10:30 to give her her medicine! So I gave it to her and my little princess slept til 11.
I was so rested by the time she woke up that I knew this was going to be a great day! I had the energy to entertain her and I couldn’t wait for her to be awake with me.
It’s now 4 o’clock and she’s down for another nap with her new pacis that finally stay in her mouth!! Shout out to Jen for the recommendation and literally saving my life. And shout out to my mom for buying some and getting them overnighted to me!
I know today is hours from being over, but it has finally given me hope that I can do this by myself and that me and P have so much to look forward to each day together. Every day with this cutie is different and it always surprises me. But, I wouldn’t have it any other way. So for moms having a tough day, stay strong and know it always gets better. And for moms having a great day, enjoy every second! Have a great rest of the day!
