Being a mother is hard. and actually sometimes it sucks.
This afternoon I spent two hours trying to get baby Barack to take his nap only for him to scream his lungs out. I tried leaving him to cry it out and he wouldn’t stop. I went in and rocked him. nothing. fed him. nothing. burped him. nothing.
This is such a mind fcuk! Its the most frustrating experience of my life. Sometimes he’s been crying for almost an hour and I really don’t want to be around him. Mzee is at work and won’t make it home for another hour and honestly all I want is a stiff cocktail, for my ear to stop ringing, and to not smell like a combination of poop, pee, and bad milk.
I finally gave up and now he’s quite happily kicking his legs and playing by himself. He really just did not feel like sleeping. What kind of three month old only takes one nap a day?!!
oh crap. there goes the crying again…..
