Hello!

My little 15 month old has finally lost the battle with sleep and I was able to put her in her cot. Hopefully she will sleep there most of the night, I have to Work early tomorrow. I started co sleeping to be able to sleep a bit, now I need to get rid of the habit or hubby and I won’t be able to have that second child.
I love my baby, and I love my husband but sometimes I just feel like running away. Especially when it’s hot. But only for an hour or two.
Hubby does try to help around the house, I will give him credit for that but I can be a bit of a control freak so I’m left to do the kitchen most of the time.
Which means that I don’t often have time for myself. Oh glorious days where I used to have my da off n just rest, now I have to change poopy diapers and help a sticky child in the bath.
Although when I think about her sloppy kisses and the warrior like qualities she displayed during birth, ‘m so glad to have my little one, she could just as easily not have been there. Her laugh is infectious, her smiles precious. These moments I want to cherish forever.
Being a mom is hard, being a tired Mom harder, but I love my baby. Would I do it all again for her? In a heartbeat, without hesitation.
Do I still want to run away for an hour or two? Nope. Not a chance :)
I’m here for the long haul, and despite hubby being a jerk sometimes (what man isn’t?), he is mostly the caring loving man I fell in love with and married and more importantly, he is a wonderful husband and father.
On that note, goodnight.
I was just rambling.

  • I remember those days… it does get easier but remember that as much as you love both your husband and your daughter, time for you (that escape time) is still really important.

  • I used to lock the toilet door for 5 minutes to ‘escape’.

  • It’s hard work when they wont sleep easily. I wish they could just understand how GOOD it is to have a lovely LONG sleep! I hope you get a sleep-in in the very near future!

  • I remember feeling just like you do. It does get easier….for a little while…..then they turn 14!!!!! Not fun…..then some more years pass and they become great again. The rollercoaster of parenthood. Enjoy it, try to rest when you can, and try to let your hubby clean up the kitchen every now again. It really doesn’t matter if he doesn’t do as well as you, all the kitchen jobs are so repetitive, you’ll fix it up the next time you do it, but meanwhile you get some time to yourself.

  • Thank you ladies, I was so tired that night and hubby rang me after work to tell me we had to go to a movie less than an hour later. Lucky his mom had just arrived and she stayed with our daughter whilst we went to the movie. She made us dinner and cleaned my kitchen but I still didn’t go to bed till midnight.
    Sometimes being a mom is hard but I wake up with a smile on my face everyday :)

  • Oh yeah, sometimes I want to run away too. Only for five minutes though.


    • Everyone needs a little ‘time out’! :)

  • Thanks for sharing your as you say ‘ramblings’. Being a Mom is exhausting at times; but also so worthwhile. :)
