I almost didn't believe my eyes! Boo has cut his first tooth, on the bottom. It's little and sharp. Maybe that is causing his crankiness. This is not to complain, only to chronicle the life and times of our little boy. I have come to realize that children do not always behave logically. Of course everybody knows this, but they forget sometimes. I am tired of getting advice that if I do "this", my baby will do "that". Example: if you nurse your baby before bedtime, he will sleep all night. Or: if you have a constant routine, he will sleep all night. Bah!! I think that he is going to do what he is going to do. I do try to have a routine, but it doesn't matter. I try to put him in his bed at night, but he always wakes up. This doesn't bother me as much as some people think. I am his mother. It's just my job to take care of him. Of course I would like to sleep more, but it's just not in the cards for now. Last night he was up and down all night. I couldn't even tell you when because it's all a blur. He nursed about 5-6 times before bedtime last night, about every hour. He didn't like his bottle at all yesterday and didn't drink much. So when I was home with him, he was hungry. Maybe it's the tooth, maybe it's just a baby being unpredictable. In any case, we'll deal with it
Another issue - leaving Boo to do something "fun". I just don't have any desire to go out without him. I bought concert tickets for August, and I don't think I want to go. I know that logically, I need a break. I need to do something for me, but I don't want to. I am away from my child a lot already just to work. I want to be with him as much as possible when I am not working. I have a hard time even going to the church service for one hour. I do want our marriage to survive having a baby, but right now, I don't want to leave him. This is another thing I am getting a lot of advice on. Maybe my behavior is like Boo's, unpredictable.
