WHY cant I ever find the time to update this blog? I update it all the time in my head. I wish I could have my head just transfer my thoughts to this blog. Well, some of my thoughts....
What else is new....I lost my mind over the summer and am just now feeling like my normal self.
PPD is HARD. If you know a mom who might be suffering from this..do everything you can to reach out to her. Make her some dinner, watch her kids for her while she naps or cries, slap her husband upside the head if he's not helping her...just do something. No one should ever have to feel like that and deal with it alone.
Parenting is hard even under the best circumstances, but sometimes life throws you a curve ball.
It's hard to appreciate the humor and beauty in moments when you are filled with anxiety and fear.
There was one day in June, after D's recovery, and the older kids and I were infested with lice, I couldnt get rid of it, and D was not sleeping through the night yet, our finances were broke and getting broker due to lice treatment and such, and I had just survived the most trying and awful period of my life ( D's illness and recovery)
.....................and I just broke into a million pieces. I saw my doc later that month and began my own recovery.
This year has really been tremendous.
We bought a house, an adorable bungalow in the city, and our littlest boy has been doing so great. No more outbreaks or developmental disabilities. He will be a year old next month. My older kids went on an epic road trip with their father over the second half of the summer, and they not only survived but had great memories and I learned to let go and not worry so much.
So much to say yet, D has woken up from the longest nap ever and he's grumpy so, ce'st la vie.
