Hope For the Weary Mom Chapter 3 Beer and Cigarettes?
I have to admit I was a bit taken a back when I read the title of this chapter. I totally understand what they meant now. I really can relate. My kids are 4 years apart but my son had me all to himself all that time until I had my daughter. So you can just imagine the wonderful adventure that was about to begin. The nursing story is almost what I went through every day for months. Each time I tried to nurse her my son would bounce on the bed so her head would bob up and down and of course she stopped nursing. So then he would stop bouncing then I would try to nurse again and so on. You get the picture. That wasn't the only thing he did either. Sometimes it would be tossing the cat litter around while I nursed, peeing on the floor right in front of me when I nursed. Yes, so loving he was. "SIGH" He just wasn't too happy that some other "little person" was taking his place. And guess what? It hasn't ended. Not in the least bit.
Have you gotten to the place of a total breakdown? What did that look like for you?
