just one of those crappy days! anyone else need to unload?!(8 Posts)
Really not enjoying today. Anyone else down in the dumps?
I have a 21mo and 3mo. 21mo is a good girl mostly but my 3mo just seems to want to be attached to my breast and if not my breast she's chomping on her hands and sucking loudly and I won't lie, the noise is really grating on me!
Made an early dinner which was shit.
Washed up lots of pots and still a load to do. Same with laundry. Basically sitting in a pig sty atm!
Toddler is napping. DP has been having earlier starts which means he is home earlier which actually isn't so great as he's just knackered! So he's napping with toddler. I thought perhaps the baby and I could join them but oh no she's wide awake chomping and whining!
Not a particularly stressful day to many but I personally am just not handling the day well and seem to be weighing myself down more and more.
New day tomorrow!
Hun most days I feel like everything I do is never good enough! We all have days like this - really feel for you. Today my 8 year old hasn't listened to anything I have said at all and then my 1 1/2 year old wouldnt go to bed and then my 2 and 1/2 year old has had a temper tantrum day! Hopefully tomorow will be better for both of us! Xx
Had one of those yesterday. Both 3yr old and 4 month old poorly and vomiting. Washing machine on 5 times and still loads to do. Toddler insisting on being attached to me limpet style. Just felt so down and fed up couldn't even talk to my other half as I'd have burst into tears in front of the kids. Today older one went to nursery for a few hours - felt bad for sending him as he wasn't 100% but I desperately needed the breathing space. Feel much more able to cope today.
You will get through it (but it's awful feeling that way). Roll on tomorrow
Oh I love that little chomping slurping noise! Cluster feeding is pretty horrendous though I feel for you, hope that passes soon!
Could your mum or someone come round and blitz the house? You do not have time for housework with those two!
Sadly my mum has moved 4hrs drive away! For good reasons but it still sucks in so many ways!
DP has woken today with a spring clean bug so I'm sitting here sipping my coffee which he made and I'm already feeling brighter albeit very tired!
New day ladies! Thanks for the replies. It's always nice to know that even when I feel alone with it all, I'm never actually alone.
Have a good weekend all!
Oh and *desperatelyseekingca
Justonesherry (love your name ) I have a 23 and 7 month old and when dd2 was 3 months I hated every day. When she was 4 and 5 months, to be honest it wasn't much better but I didn't hate every day. When she was 6 months I still hated more days than not...but something in the last 2 weeks (6.5 months-7months) has changed - possibly weaning going ok so can spend lots of double high chair time - and honestly I've even enjoyed most days. Sure there are moments that are still stressful but it's much better. Not only does the little one get better but the big one grows up loads in that time too and so things get better on both fronts. Sure I have a long way to go before I can say I'm coping well or things are amazing, but I honestly wouldn't have believed I could enjoy looking after 2 babies a couple of months ago. Now is about survival for you but you'll be ok. It's an endurance test but you're 3 months in xx
I'm with golf monkey - I have a 5 month old and a 22 month old and certainly at the start and for the first 4 months I dreaded every single day I looked after them alone. Even just leaving the house was horrendous and a massive military operation! My eldest also used to (and still does sometimes) bite me and kick me when I'm trying to feed the baby. I don't dread it quite as much now but it's still crazy hard!
Hopefully it all gets easier somewhere along the line....
Having two at such a close is so difficult at times isn't it?! I keep visioning the light at the end of the tunnel!
Completely agree on it being difficult to get out alone with them. Sometimes the thought of it is almost enough to deliver a panic attack! It's bad enough getting out with DPs help, never mind on my own!
Thinking of the brighter and somewhat easier days ahead helps. Thanks for the replies which are most appreciated.
