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