I was trying to write a follow up on my postpartum story, unfortunately the heater in my daughter’s bedroom is broken and we won’t be able to fix it until Monday. That means she has to sleep on the pack n’ play in our room and she’s not thrilled about it. I put her down for her afternoon nap but she won’t stop crying.
I made some popcorn to eat while I was writing but now I’m stuffing as much popcorn as I can in my mouth before I go pick her up. If she sees the popcorn she’ll cry the whole time I’m eating it and of course I can’t give her popcorn yet so there’s my dilemma.
I almost choked finishing my popcorn but you gotta to what you gotta do. On my way to pick up my cranky, tired little girl, wish me luck!!
My little girl has a cold, she has a runny and stuffy nose but thank God no fever. It all started last night so I haven’t slept well, neither has she. I’ve tried everything!!! And when I say everything I mean it. I just put her in her crib and left the room, she’s not crying but she’s not sleeping either, I think she’s just overtired and cranky. Of course I want to run and hold her until she falls asleep but I already tried that and it didn’t help, so now I’m listening to the baby monitor, feeling anxious and defeated, thinking “What am I doing wrong? Do all kids get sick this often?” Because I feel like she’s getting viruses ALL.THE.TIME. This is hard…
I’m sitting on my couch, listening my toddler sneeze, I think she might be getting a cold and I’m panicking a little bit, and googling “How to cure my one year old from a cold that she’s kind of just getting but not yet but I don’t have the energy to care for a sick toddler for second time this month” and google tells me: Give her plenty of liquids….. Ummm THANKS FOR NOTHING GOOGLE. I was expecting something more like: Rub an onion to your child’s chest while singing Cumbaya with the sun behind you. Jesus take the wheel!!
Ps. I’m not sure what and “aside” post is so…..
Hi!!! I survived setting up my blog!! I’m the mommy of an energetic one year old girl who owns my heart and my dreams, like literally because I’m sleep deprived. No, she doesn’t wake up in the middle of the night but waking up at 5am sucks just as much, if not more.
I decided to start this blog because I have so much to say about this motherhood thing which I knew it wasn’t going to be easy but man I never thought it would be this hard!! I just need a break from diapers and baby food and Cheerios, most of all Cheerios, they are everywhere!!! I need a break, even if it is a virtual one, while my baby naps or Daniel Tiger is on (oh lawd thank you for Daniel Tiger)
I’m not sure what type of blog this will be but for now I think is safe to say it’s mostly about motherhood and its perks. Every now and then I’ll post a recipe (I used to have a food blog), sometimes I’ll just need to vent and I’m sorry you’ll be there to see it, but maybe you’re a new mom struggling to get your life together just as I am and you’ll find comfort in knowing that you’re not going crazy, at least not alone.
BTW I’m sorry if sometimes my english is weird, it’s not my first language but I think is good enough that you’ll get the idea of what I want to say, Me Tarzan.. you Jane!!
That’s all the time I have for now, I have a hot date with my microwave which includes vinegar and paper towels if you know what I mean *wink* I’ll leave you with this thought:
If your child offers you a Cheerio, you eat the damn cheerio, even if it’s soggy and don’t know why. That’s pure love… and drool, definitely drool
