- Blogger hates me.
- My baby is nocturnal. On a good night I’m getting maybe three hours of sleep. Total.
- My dog is possessed. She’s way more jealous than my kids are. In fact, I just had to rescue a diaper from her.
- I’ve been revising a lot. And blogging time has been replaced by nap time. For me.
I smiled, nodded, thanked them for their input and went on planning a crazy, busy summer ignoring the fact that I was having a baby via major surgery. (Secretly, I laughed…”Bwahaha. Don’t you know I’m superwoman. I laugh in the face of infants!” Not really. That would be sort of scary.)
But alas, when the character ignores the advice of the cliched sage, it comes back to bite them. Hard.
So will you all forgive me if my posting schedule is a little erratic for the next couple weeks?
Thanks for understanding.
Completely understood! Have fun chasing the dog.
I hope that diaper hasn’t been used yet…
Hang in there it will only get harder in different ways. As for the dog, who knows, I’m going through that as well. LOL
Hang in there. You can do it!
Funny how she is awake at night when your other two are asleep, and she sleeps during the day when her brothers are awake. She must have missed the nap-time, pre-natal memo you so thoughtfully wrote her. As for the dog . . . well I have no sage advise on that. My dog has turned into Coju!
Wow, I’m surprised you found time to post this. You really do have your hands full. Those little humans are fabulous though aren’t they and worth every moment. (Well most of the time!)
Good luck, don’t forget the “you” time (ok so don’t laugh at me) try and fit some in.
I second the comment about hoping the diaper wasn’t used..yuck..

I’ve been amazed you’re posting at all! Good luck with your revisions and your jealous dog, I hope Audrey figures out that the rest of the world sleeps at night by tonight :), and no worries about erratic posting – it’s summer and lots of us have kids and families never mind newborns so I’d bet lots of people’s blogs will be a bit erratic – I’m sure mine will! Hang in there. It gets better. Eventually 🙂
Good luck! I’m sure you’ll get a handle on things quicker than you think.
I so understand! My third child pushed me over the edge! She’s worth it!
Um, your life sounds absolutely insane right now. I think you deserve some time off to care for your baby and make sure your dog doesn’t help the kids finger paint with the diaper. 😉
You can do it all, but you don’t have to do it all now! My #3 turned one earlier this month—that rough beginning seems like it was so long ago (and she had a touch of colic).
Good luck with sleep!
