Sigh...

You know, not all days are great days. Some days all that I want to do is take a nice big dose of VALIUM. I get anxiety sometimes, people. I don't take anything for it- but some days, I really wish I did. 




Easton has not been napping (as I've mentioned before). He is so busy- always moving, moving, moving- that sometimes I can barely even take a breath. I haven't been able to get a lot accomplished during the day because he won't sit still long enough for me get a load of laundry (for example) started while he's awake. He won't be confined- so putting him in his car-seat, high-chair, stroller, or changing table is a fight... EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. (This started in his 10th month)

Honestly, I need a little R&R (again). Maybe even a job....

I've been seriously considering going back to work- in some capacity. At least then, I would have a day-care option (and a break from my little monster). Right now, I have nothing. So anytime I need to go grocery shopping, workout, or make an appointment E has to be there, right by my side- fussy or not (usually fussy, if he's being constrained).

Hopefully this is a phase....(it must be, right???)

*I have been doing some freelance writing and social networking. You can view some of my writing here!!! (It's been pretty fun)

I dont know if you would be open to it, but look into Rescue Remedy. Its all natural and it can help take the edge off. You can find it at whole foods. Also, just remember ALL Moms feel this way at one time or another;)

Also, I dont know if you have looked into already, but thre is an AMAZING book called the Wonder Weeks ( you can ever download the app). It gives you an idea of when your little man will be going through developemental leaps and will be more prone to being fussy or not sleeping. It has been a life saver for me and might be something to at least look into!

Rachel, that is such a good idea (the book and the rescue remedy) I'll check them out tomorrow! I know that it is all just a part of being a mama- and I'm not the only one....it's just, really HARD sometimes. And not always hard in a good way. But most of the time, it's pretty fabulous!!! :)

ps- I get to see megan on saturday!! hooray!
