Parenting is hard!! About the only easy part is changing the diapers.
Sure there are times when the problems get so bad (rashes, yeast, buildup, ammonia, leaks…) you want to scream. But, at least you could opt for a disposable.
When your baby wants/needs to be held all day because of gas, teething or constipation what alternatives do we have??
One diversion that works for me is looking at too-cute-to-resist pictures.
Here’s what I looked at today…so as to prevent myself from breathing fire on my children.
Seriously, how could I be mad at this cutie? I’m no saint…gee, I’m sure I had you fooled. I can’t stand it when all 5 children are crying/talking/whining all.at.once.
I get frustrated, and a wee bit angry, when Camden cries inconsolably in the middle of the night when he is laying right next to me and I’m offering the breast.
Alas, this too shall pass, and he won’t be this cute little baby. Before I know it, he’ll be 7 and driving me crazy in much worse ways. (like a certain other son of mine)
If you had a bad day go look at a picture of your baby. Smile. Take a deep breath. Be grateful.
