Life is rough with a newborn. I'm sooo darn tired that I don't know how my body is still functioning. People always tell me to sleep when he sleeps but, let's be realistic. How many things do I need to get done in the day and when can they be done? While I'm awake and he is asleep!!! I have to feed myself, clean the house, pump, shower, laundry, coordinate my future work schedule, take care of insurance and bills, call people, etc. This list goes on forever.
I have to wait til he is a month old to start giving him bottles. That leaves 2 more weeks of this no-sleep schedule. I feel like it's going to be the death of me! (I'm really mostly writing this to remind my future self of what I had to go through and how long it lasted).
People also tell me that it's difficult but it's so worth it. Right now, I'm having a hard time seeing the "it's worth it part". I'm just so tired, nothing matters. Tomorrow doesn't matter, a candy bar doesn't matter, a good back rub doesn't matter, a cruise to the Caribbean doesn't matter. Just give me some SLEEP!!!!
