Life happens

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.


  1. I really hope you feel better and that Meeghan's sleep habits get better!

  2. There is nothing better than having the hubby around to help!!! We just got a puppy and I think the same thing when the weekend comes and he is up 3 and 4 times a night!! I hope you feel better! THe flu is THE worst. I had a little bout of it myself late last year right before Christmas…yuk.

  3. Here's to a speedy recovery! It's so hard when little ones need your time and attention. :(

  4. I'm sorry you're sick. Me and my family have had never ending colds for months and ugh, it sucks. Try not to be hard on yourself. Yeah, easier said than done. ;)

    But I've learned running myself ragged to please my daughter while I'm sick just makes the recovery of a cold worse. Wishing you back to your healthy self soon. :)

    1. Thanks! It seems like this has been a bad season for illnesses. I hope I am the last one to get sick for a few months.

  5. Oh gosh - I hope you're feeling better. :)

  6. Blah, I really hope you feel better!


I'd love your opinion!
