I am battling my first bout of the flu for this year. I am very grateful that this is the first time I have had it this year, but it came at a bad time. Meeghan must be hitting her 4 month sleep regression or something because getting her to sleep at night sucks. She refuses to lie down and sleep on her own. She used to get drowsy, I would put her down, and she would drift off to sleep. Not anymore. Now I have to rock, bounce, and walk with her to get her to fall asleep. Then if I try to lay her down she starts screaming like I am murdering her. And if I do manage to get her in her bed, she wakes up after 30-45 minutes. Her frequent wakings plus my flu means I have not been getting a lot of sleep. That does not help my mood. I have been such a crabby mom that I feel bad. Hannah asked me if my fever was gone so I could play with her again. That broke my heart. I feel bad that I can't do what I normally do, and that my patience is thin. Thank goodness it is the weekend so the husband can get up during the night with the baby. I just hope I kick this bug soon so I feel like myself again.
