Poor Jack has a cold for the first time in a while. He doesn’t have a fever but he is visibly exhausted, snotty, and quite hacky. Last night he woke up twice bawling. I *think* he hit his head when tossing and turning but it’s hard to say because he was pretty out of it (now I know what David deals with when I try to talk to him while half asleep). After getting him to bed the second time, I had trouble falling back to sleep and kept thinking I heard him crying. I’m tired today.
It astounds me that I dealt with regular night waking for almost two years straight when Jack was a baby while holding down a crazy-busy full time job and getting absolutely no down time. How did I do that? How does anyone do that? After being so unused to it now, I feel like a complete zombie today. It’s a miracle that I can type!
Thank goodness we’re in an easier phase overall! It’s days like today that remind me why I haven’t had a second child yet. The easier things get with Jack, the harder it gets to go in the second child direction…
