Motherhood

I have come to accept the fact that there are days during motherhood where all the baby wants to do is cry, your child can spit up on you numerous times and you don't even bother to change your shirt, sitting and breastfeeding makes the day go by super slow, the laundry is never completely done, the grass will always continue to grow faster than you can cut it, and when your husband walks in the door and asks "What's wrong?" all you want to do is throw a hard object at him or through the window (that could use some Windex). That's the kind of day I had.

Jackson was hungry ALL FREAKING DAY! There can't be anything left in my breasts! When he wasn't hungry, he was fussy. The only time we got out of the house today was to go on a walk--which of course, we run into the neighbors and have a nice chat, afterwards realizing that I am in the same shirt that Jackson has spit up on all day (it's a t-shirt, so I didn't bother to change before I went to workout. Remember the before mentioned laundry???) How embarassing.....

So right now, it's 11:00, I am so tired that I can't even sleep, and I have a minor headache. I am really hoping that Jackson is back to his smiling self tomorrow!! If not, Mommy is going shopping and Daddy can't stop her!

PS: The only time Jackson was happy was when Adam came home for lunch:

Welcome to motherhood!!! He looked so adorable with his daddy. Are you sure he was having a bad day?

Looks like Jackson was having a great day and his mommy was the fussy one. Maybe she just needed some ice cream??????

Well, ice cream could have helped.....
