So there comes a point in life sometimes where you have to be brutally honest with yourself. And today I have reached that point… Motherhood is kicking my butt. Big time. As hard as it is to admit there was a point in pregnancy that I thought this is easy, I can do it, motherhood can’t be that hard.
Little did I know what I was about to jump into…
Everything in my life I have tackled, completed and survived through the journey, and I know I will be the same with being a mom. But when it comes to being honest, this week has kicked my butt big time.
It started at the beginning of the week when the baby had a fever; he was super angry and crying, a lot. More than normal. Based on all his signs we put the symptoms and anger to teething. So night after night my good friend sleep was coming around less and less. Fail.
Thursday rolls around and the little one has a check up to get his shots, but the dr had something else in store for us…double ear infections. Great what mom doesn’t know when her baby has an ear infection, not just one, but two. Major Fail.
Later that night I am trying to give him his medicine and he spits it out and it goes everywhere, including all over the light carpet and keep in mind its bright pink. Fail. Then the next day the little one has side effects to his medicine and explodes through his diaper. On the bed. Then on the couch. Then in his crib. Fail. Fail. Fail.
Saturday morning rolls around, my day to get up with him. He is awake at 630 and is angry. Two hours later he is still angry and I cannot calm him down. Daddy wakes up and 5 minutes later buddy is laughing. Fail.
So I throw the towel in for parenting this week. And I will be the first to say, motherhood is kicking my butt this week, BIG TIME!! Sometimes in life when it rains it pours and all you can do is take the rain with a smile and a great big glass of wine!
