Something I just discovered because of my husband. He went in for a snuggle and then realized, “Agh…you have snot on your shoulder…”
And I replied, “Not surprised…”
Because I have come to discover that my entire person is a personal tissue for my baby.
She’ll be walking around with a funny look on her face and I’ll ask, “you okay, sweet thing?”
“No…,” a soft voice. A little baby no. (Her new favorite word.)
“Okay come here. Mama will try and help.”
A sudden sprint for me and my piece of clean clothing gets a nice smear of snot.
And it’s not like I can leave out a box of tissues for her…no no no that’s like toilet paper to her…it will be torn apart into tiny pieces throughout the house…
So instead my person is usually the tissue.
So I guess this post is for both: all the moms who understand, but also for all the husbands, “yes that is snot on my shoulder, put there by our offspring.”
Have a laughable Friday Evening 🤓
I have been blessed in the past. I have always gotten sick before or after the baby got sick. I didn’t think much of it it, but now I realize it was a blessing. Because now we are both sick with a terrible cold. I wish my mama was up here to take care of me and my baby. Because sometimes I just want to crawl into a hole and hide, but I can’t do that; especially since while she is sick she wants mommy all the time.
So I guess this sickness is making me miss my mama more than usual. Love you mama ❤️
Bedtime is still a challenge. What entails for getting in bed: clean up the place area, do a little bit of dancing to get our wiggles out, shower, brush our teeth,￼￼ and then go upstairs. By that time Mama is tired and is ready to go to sleep; however, baby is wide awake and full of energy￼. So the pre-bedtime consist of playing with toys until she is ready for the bedtime ‘food￼’.
So I sit here waiting for my baby to get tired enough for bedtime. So all those moms whose days are long and hard; just think I’m still awake with a happy baby and I probably won’t be going to bed for another hour or two.￼￼ Be happy hour child has a set bedtime. 😊
But I will say I get 8 to 10 hours of sleep. So I am doing better than those moms with the babies who don’t sleep through the night.
Unless she is sick she has been sleeping through the night since she was two months old. Occasionally I don’t get all those hours of sleep, but a majority of the time I still get a decent eight hours straight sleep.￼
I guess this post is for all the moms out there. We are all vary but we all have the wonderful job of raising our little ones. They’re so sweet! And my baby knows it!￼
I made a dumb deal with my husband when the baby was born…I would change all the diapers but he has to deal with any dead animals, spiders, etc. I thought it was a great deal in the beginning but now my life is forever diaper based. 😓
He occasionally does it…begrudgingly, but he does.
I tried to make this task not so dreary; I put the trash can away from my changing station. Mostly I did that to keep the trash can away from my smart cookie, but I try and make the diapers in with a toss. However I’m realizing that if I miss I need to walk over and throw it away quickly, because I’ve caught my sneaky thing trying to grab them through the gate.🤢 Not something a baby should play with.
It used to be basketball…swish, swish. Now it’s diapers…smelly, smelly.
You don’t really know until you are a mama. Getting woken up by a happy baby is a wonderful thing; however, having your baby squish their very full diaper into your face is not so pleasant.
She is my sweet thing, but the diaper in the face is a new level of love. ❤️ Hope your Wednesday morning was wonderful!
