T.I.R.E.D.

It's a novel post, right?  A mother of an infant complaining about being tired.

Despite my desperate pleas that he sleep through the night, Henry did not.  In fact, yesterday when I picked him up from daycare, his teacher said, "I sure hope he sleeps for you tonight."

Oh great.

I guess he basically slept all day yesterday.  Couldn't even be bothered to wake up and eat, which of course meant he woke up every 2 hours last night, STARVING.

You know, it's not even the tired part that bothers me.  It's the fact that I keep forgetting things that really annoys me.

My lunch.  The wet bag for Henry's diapers.  Parts for the breast pump.  Bibs for Henry.  Nursing pads.  A better keyboard for my computer at the office.  How to spell words.  The fact that I shouldn't throw away important papers from my desk.

It's in my brain and then gone a second later.

Thankfully I have yet to forget important things like Henry's diapers, bottles or Henry himself.  While I doubt I will forget Henry, I know it is just a matter of time until I forget his bottles one day.

I'm contemplating wear a pack of post-its around my neck, so I can jot things down when they come to me and then I won't lose the post-it 3 seconds later.

I'm crossing my fingers he does more than just sleep at daycare today.

  2. Reading all this feels so familiar, even when they are a tad older. You're just being a working mom and things like that happen. As long as you don't forget Henry at home or in your car ;-), you'll be fine. After four years, the days I don't feel tired are still in the minority LOL, but in my case it has become my present state. Being a mama is the toughest, but also the best job in the world! I think you're doing great and that little face is just too precious!

    lots of love!
