Ugh :(

Normally I only make posts if I have some fun pictures to share but that isn't the case today. I am on the verge of a hormone-induced breakdown and all I want to do is curl up in bed and cry myself to sleep. Thank God for my husband. He is upstairs with our little girl who for two days now hasn't taken a nap and doesn't even seem the remotest bit tired when it's nap time. Yesterday she seemed tired early so I put her in bed about an hour and a half earlier than usual. After 2 and a half hours of being in bed and not napping, I decided she isn't going to sleep so I let her get out of bed to read. Today I put her in bed at her usual time and after an hour and a half of not sleeping, again I let her get out of bed to read because otherwise she would be sleeping too late in order to go to bed at a decent time this evening. However, when this kid doesn't nap she turns into a screeching, whining, crying, kid who throws a fit over every little thing screaming, "I CAN DO IT MYSELF!!!" Some days  I have the patience to tolerate it but no tonight. And now I'm thinking, "how in the world am I going to do this with two kids?" Honestly, right now, I feel like there is no way I can do it. I guess from now on the only way to get through the day is to start going to bed at 8:00 myself so I'll have the energy and patience to handle these meltdowns. But for now, like I said, thank God for my husband because he is being so wonderful handling her.


  1. I'm sorry, Sis! Those days suck, and that's all there is to it. Give AFace a hug for me, and take care of yourself, doll. You're doing great, and you'll still be a stellar momma with two little ones. In fact, I'll bet it gets even better. Don't be too hard on yourself. We love you! xoxo

  2. You'll be great! Kait won't be like this forever, it's just a phase, and while the beginning of having a newborn plus a temper tantrum Kaitie will be tough, it'll get easier. There is light at the end of the tunnel! :) You're great at what you do and you have a great support system to help you through it. Love!

  3. I can't wait until I can be part of your support system. Like they said above...it's a phase and even though it is unlikely she'll take naps anymore, at least making Kbear relax and read a book will eventually help her get through the rest of her day. Have you explained to K why she is gets frustrated and how naps may be helpful...but even if she doesn't get a nap she still needs to cooperate with Mommy and Daddy.

    Love you sweetie.
