Bad Day

That Daniel Powter song kept running through my head yesterday...you know, the Bad Day song that was made popular by American Idol. Jackson and I both had a really bad go of it yesterday--first, he would not go to sleep. I should re-phrase that--he REFUSED to sleep longer than about an hour, starting at about 4:00am. So mommy was really tired to begin with. Adam left for work, and the baby and I tried to sleep in a little--wrong! We think Jackson hit a growth spurt, because he was eating every hour, on the hour. The chunky monkey ate 17 times yesterday! 17 times! My post-pregnancy rear end sat on the couch for most of the day. When he wasn't eating, he was sleeping or crying. When he cried, mommy cried--I think from pure exhaustion. I tried everything to calm him, but all he wanted was to be fed and to sleep. I literally stayed in my jammy-jams all day--although I did get a shower, I didn't get to do my makeup or hair, so it really was pointless to even get wet! Fortunately, Adam called at about 4:00--during one of MY crying fits, and was able to take the rest of the afternoon off. We had a great night once he got home. We were all in our bed by 8:00 and just really relaxed for the rest of the night. Adam really was my hero last night....such a good dad.
