Annoyed and guilty

DS has had a seriously challenging week - moving nurseries, recently moved to big bed..,

So it's no surprise that he's had sleep issues this week and is far more in need of company and cuddles

I have a really important interview for a job I really want today. Hardly any good sleep. And I feel seriously pissed off about it. Makes me feel bad - I should be way more patient and accepting of all of this by now.

Well I wouldn't be too hard on yourself. Most of us have thought 'Sh** when the wail wakes us up at three 'o' clock in the morning.
I often felt like throttling mine.
However, Kate MCann says in her autobiography that she often sent Madelaine back to her own bed, and now she wishes anything to have her back, standing by their bedroom door in the early hours of the AM.

This phase won't last long. In years to come, you won't remember the struggles. We only have one go at giving them a secure and happy childhood.
However all you can do, is do your best. I am sure that is what you are doing.
You are far from being alone.
Best of luck with the interview. Get some concealer on the dark circles around your eyes. You will be fine.

I would imagine your anxiety about the job interview is making your annoyance and guilt feel worse than they would normally be. Try not to beat yourself up. And good luck!
