Lest I lead anyone astray, I am having a hard-ish time adjusting to all this. It is nearly 2 in the afternoon and here I sit, in my soggy pajamas, still unshowered, after spending the last two hours calming a hysterical congested baby. My hormones are all loopy, so anything remotely sad or remotely happy sends me into fits of tears. Just thinking that my baby's already growing up and will never be as young and new as he was amoment ago... and there I go blubbering.
So not that it's a surprise or anything, but staying home alone with a new baby all day is maddening hard work.

Breathe in, breathe out... I should go try to take a nap before Oliver wakes up.

I had a really hard time also, when I decided to be a stay at home mom. It is hard adjusting to just "staying home" all the time and not getting up and ready to go to work. Things will seem more normal as you get used to it. It took me a while to get the hang of everything. I was in tears over every little thing at first, and now it's nothing! They grow so fast, so enjoy him while he is that little. If you need to talk or anything let me know! I have gone through it all!:)

Staying at home is hard. I think the only way I survived is I actually napped with little miss on my chest. That way I HAD to nap/not move and I caught up on all the books I've been meaning to read for years.

I think our issues after childbirth have a lot to do with lack of sleep. Is there a direct correlation between torturing prisoners and not letting them sleep that puts them close to the edge?
