So while sitting down with a large glass of wine 🍷im ready to write this post ..
Today had been one of those days .. very long tiring and hard work 😴 The kind of days they don’t tell you about before you have the baby!
I love Aria and 9/10 she is a pretty perfect baby but there is that 1% of the time when she is really really hard work and today was one of those days 🙈
she wouldn’t sleep all day, she pood about 10 times, she didn’t want to play in her chair, she didn’t want to play on her mat, she didn’t want to lay on the floor and she didn’t want to be held. The only way she would half settle was if I held her and marched quite fast around the house! (Great for my Fitbit daily challenge)
Doing all this for an hour or two is bearable but not from 8 in the morning until 6 at night, when my fiancé came home from work and saved me.
It was just one of those days where there is nothing wrong with her physically she was just really fussy and for me, and my poor back, very very tiring.
The thing I don’t get is why don’t we talk about these crapy days with other mums! Why don’t we say ‘god she was bloody hard work yesterday and all I needed was a glass of wine and a long shower’ instead we chose to skip over the bad and just say how amazing our children are!
As mums we feel enough guilt all day and as women we should be sharing all this and helping each other and telling each other it’s normal and saying we have all been there!
I for one think there should be a group open for mums to escape to at the end of the day, when the dads are home, where we can share our problems over a large glass of wine and bubbles 🍷 🥂
‘Tonight’s forecast .. 99% chance of WINE’
