Some days you just have to fake it

We all have those days. When you wake up wondering how on earth you're going to make it til the evening. As a mom, those days may come often but it's a bit more challenging when you know there is another little person depending on you for food, love and so much more. Pregnancy is no joke, I'm tired almost always and the insomnia that has managed to stick with me only adds to the fatigue. Last week was especially trying. I woke up one morning to an abnormally early riser after getting only two hours of sleep. Two hours. I seriously felt like my body was going to break in half. It was one of the very few times I wished I had a nanny or anyone who could help me out. 

At the same time, I feel so blessed not to have to go to work and leave my baby with someone else, especially while feeling so tired. However, sometimes it's hard not to feel like I'm failing my family when I'm too tired to give cruze a fufilling day. And it adds to my funk. I just knew there was no way in the world I would be able to accomplish anything at home while feeling that way.

So... Instead of staying home and sulking in my misery I decided that the best thing to do was to fake it. Fake a full nights rest and a peppy spirit. Fake the desire to be up and about and running from here to there after my oh so very active toddler. So fake it we did.

There was a Starbucks stop.

Some outdoor shopping fun

And hey, a little red lipstick can go a longggg way. Trust me. It works. 

The funny thing is, after we came back home for cruzes nap, I had one of my most productive days. I felt great and cruze was the most pleasant little boy ever. Even while going from store to store in the morning. Faking it worked out well for us. Although. a full nights rest wouldn't have been too shabby either! ;)


  1. Love this post! Being pregnant with a little guy until one year old has been so frustrating for me lately. Glad I'm not alone :)

  2. Girl, I would lay on the couch and play catch with Max. High five to you for faking it. You are awesome!

  3. I hear ya.. first pregnancies are so much easier by comparison. I have been faking it for a few months now. Just a few more weeks to go.
