Today and yesterday were just "one of those days". A lack of sleep, a cranky baby, a husband away for training makes for one very "I feel sorry for myself" and tired mama.
It's so strange how I can go from being extremely happy and positive to plain old down in the dumps just within a few days.
I blame it all on the lack of sleep. We had been doing very well with our sleep training until Noah started to teeth just a week or so ago. At that point we abandoned all of our rules and gave in to the little monster, essentially throwing all of our hard work out the window. And now with my husband away for work, I am left with one very clingy and whiney little guy.
I find myself in a dilemma. On one hand I want to be there to comfort my babe, to pick him up when he cries, to be that soft place to fall when he is upset but on the other hand I feel like he is quickly learning that by crying all the time, he gets what he wants-ME!
Any advice would be great....even if it's just a "chin up"...
