Teething Terror

I love when people ask me how things are going these days, but honestly they just don’t want to hear how bad it is so I’ve learned to stay quiet. No one wants to hear that you haven’t slept in weeks! Or that your child refuses to nap more than 40 minutes and that is … Continue reading »

New Nap Schedule – No Memo For Mom

One of the things I’m learning about babies is that they never do anything on a schedule other than their own!  No matter how much you want them to do something,  even if it is normal behavior for them….just … Continue reading »

Mom Zombie

A New Chapter in the Sleep War

The swaddle is GONE!!!!  It wasn’t the peaceful removal that I expected, but it’s gone now and not coming back. Thursday night was TERRIBLE in terms of sleep around here.  He woke up crying every 45 minutes… you read that right EVERY 45 minutes from 10pm-6am!  We don’t “cry it out” and besides there was … Continue reading »

Where, oh Where Have the Sheep Gone….
