I wish I had more of it. It’s almost impossible to sleep when she does when you are home alone. I’ve tried a few times, but then my mind wanders about things that I should be doing. The man has had a wacky schedule at work. The week after she was born he had to work. He tried to schedule his vacation time in advance, but since babies don’t have a calendar, it was pretty hard. The week of Thanksgiving he was only off on Thursday and Friday, but had the whole next week off. This week he had to work Monday – Wednesday and a half day Thursday and is off Friday.

He’s off all next week!!! I could really use the company and help. Don’t get me wrong, having my mom come over long enough for me to take a shower and do some stuff around the house is heavenly. Honestly, I need some sleep. I have ugly bags under my eyes and I’m cranky alot.

Don’t get me started on emotions. I cry all the time. Sometimes it’s a happy cry when O looks at me and smiles (on purpose or not). Mostly it’s because I miss my husband and I hate that he has to go to work while I don’t. I hate hormones.

baby is crying, until next time….

  1. {{{hugs}}} I don’t think the husbands understand how stressful the days alone with the baby really are.

  2. awww P…hang in there. i hope you get some good solid rest next week. my best friend went through the same thing…until her i never knew about the difficulty of staying home. i knew something was up when she started to come visit me in the middle of the week. we live 2 hours apart and she hates driving in LA, but she hated being cooped up tired alone in the house with the baby. you are always welcome to LA…i can help with the baby too πŸ™‚

  3. Oh man…I cried for weeks! Usually happy tears but it was ridiculous. Once it was over the cuteness of Ben’s ear, which I had never seen at that particular angle. The crying gets better in the coming weeks. And I’m sorry to say that, nearly 7 months in, I still have crazy circles under my eyes. Enjoy your time with DH at home! And get lots of rest πŸ™‚
