Man as a parent it just seems like you can never get a break. Its . Thing after another. Trying to balance life while keep kids happy is hard. We recently had the engine blow on our car. Now its bday season and Christmas season. So where in the world will I get money to pay regular bills and get a new engine for my car. Plus pay for Christmas? I’m so stressed out. I know its just the devil trying to get at my weak points but still. I could just break down and cry. I see these kids and all of them deserves a great holiday. I’ve already cancelled their trip to Florida now they have to miss out on more gifts. Crushed
I’m so excited! Cameron turned the big 2 yesterday! It’s just amazing that 2 years ago I was preggo. Of course the stock of it all was overwhelming at first but once I felt him kick it was all over from there. I was in love. To wake up to this little dimple faced kid that kisses me with his eye lashes is simply amazing. He’s so smart and is talking like a big boy. Oh and more than anything he’s starting to potty train! YES lord no more diapers. The simple fact that for the first time in 10 years I will not have to change dipers is awesome! 10 years people!
So here’s to the next 10 years of no diapers. But I will have tweens and teens. I think I’d rather changed crappy diapers then deal with those attitudes!
Here’s to the Wright’s!!!
So I talk to so many new moms and one theme I always notice is the guilt and hate we have for men who are “working” while at home with the new baby. Daddy has to be up at 6am to go to work so he shouldn’t have to stay up with the baby, right? I don’t know aboutvthis one. As a new mom who’s tired, in pain, breastfeeding 12-15 times or more a day, changing 20 diapers, cooking, cleaning, up all night and all day when do we get to sleep? Sleep deprivation is the number one key to post partum depression. Why? Cause your so tired and overwhelmed that you don’t know if your coming or going. And don’t add extra kids to that mix. You have to find time to manage a household, your kids and your relationship. But remember dad has to work. So do we make him stay up and risk him but being able to perform atvhos duties at work. Thats job keeps the household together financially. Most woman now days go back to work after leave. What then? Everyone is working but mom still has all those responsiblies. Who stays up then? Lets get real for a minute, we do! Why cause we have that guilt of missing time with the baby and bonding cause we’re back to work. So we sacrifice sanity for the fear of being branded a bad mommy. We tell our men that we can handle it all. Then a few months down the road we have a serious mental breakdown. Throwing pots, crying, screaming actinga total fool! Why? Cause we’re tired as hell and haven’t had a good nights sleep since this cute baby started kicking our ribs at 6 months! Gotta love being a mommy! Sacrifice is real.
I think a lot of times we have so much faith in the doctor and not our parental gut. As your newborn grows you have to take the advise of other moms sometimes. A few if us know what we’re talking about! We have to know what’s right for OUR kids. So if you think its wrong it probably is! And with time come wisdom. So listen to wise council!
Happy 10th #Birthday KJ!! Thanks for choosing me to be your mommy. Your such a blessing in our lives.
