Just when we thought our little darling was getting the hang of sleeping in her crib - KAZAM! (don’t you just love onomatopoeia’s?!?!) - no more crib sleep! As soon as we lay her down, no matter how deep of a sleep - BAM! (see, there I go again!) - she’s wide awake and screaming.
For now, I am chalking it up to the fact that she has a double ear infection (on-going since Thanksgiving) AND a respiratory virus. She will not sleep in her crib, only in her Mommy’s arms. Of course, I love my daughter. I love cuddling with her and looking at her peaceful, beautiful face when she sleeps - but I have to admit, I am really tired of being tired.
I look like the Bride of Frankenstein. I don’t remember what being intimate with my husband is like. I probably walk around like I am channeling the Hunchback of Notre Dame (I dare not look in a mirror as I walk by). It is becoming increasingly more difficult to function without coffee. When my friends talk about their sleeping-through-the-night babes, it makes me want to punch them in the face (and that is putting it kindly). There are a slew of reasons that get me praying every. single. day. that she will just succumb to the ways of the crib already!
What to do when three’s company, too?!
