The not perks of mommyhood
You know that the honeymoon of mommyhood is over when at 2am in the morning you're trying not to cry your eyes out because the baby won't sleep, even though he's been up for 3 hours now. He's not hungry, I offer him a boob and he just sits there looking at me like I'm the biggest idiot in the world. He doesn't need to be changed, he doesn't need burping, he doesn't want to be held, and he doesn't want to sleep obviously. Nevermind that I've been nursing him for the last 2 hours. If he wasn't so darn cute and if I didn't love him so much I'd threaten him with adoption right about now. But instead I'm out here typing and he's laying in his crib, thankfully 2 rooms apart with just a monitor between us. Mommy needed some time and space before she flipped and broke down. Now if mommy could just get some sleep, all would be well. Or if I hadn't just brushed my teeth, than I could eat some chocolate and see if that made me feel a bit better. This is where having a hubby that works nights sucks, cause the other people in the house are all sleeping and aren't any help to me either, right now.
