I’m probably about as burnt out as one can be.
I’m currently running on 4 hours of sleep, and the night before that wasn’t much better. Last night was super rough because now the baby is dealing with reflux, which both of my other kids did, so we were expecting it. But damn, it really does suck. Still, baby Atlas is nowhere near as difficult as my 5 year old was as an infant…and we’re hoping it stays that way.
He woke up at 3:15am and didn’t end up going back to sleep until 6am. It was rough. Every time I tried to lay him down he just spit up and cried. We went through multiple sheets and sleep sacks.
It was a fun time. Being 3 and a half weeks old is tough stuff.
My 2 other boys are….testing my nerves right now. I wish it was as easy as telling them to just go watch tv all day, but instead, I’m insisting on making this harder in myself by being the parent that doesn’t let them watch tv all the time. So basically, we’re all just a little miserable today.
All I want to do today is inject caffeine straight into my veins and sleep uninterrupted for hours. Unfortunately, neither seems like a plausible option.
So for now, I guess I’ll just suffer through this exhaustion filled Saturday and hope for the best.
The time to rest will come again soon enough
