Did you sleep last night? Did you wake up every couple of hours to feed, change & rock your baby? Does your arm feel like it's going to fall off from carrying her around? :)
"This too shall pass."
When my babies were little, people used to say that to me ALL.THE.TIME.
I thought they were Lying with a capital L. I was 19 years old with a 2 year old and a newborn, broke broke broke and my new baby had colic. Such a bad case of colic, that when our neighbour's moved in next door, the lady came over and introduced herself armed with Colic Medicine.
"Hi, I'm Liezl, I brought you colic medicine"
It worked. The screaming stopped. I loved my neighbour for it. (Love you Liezl!)
Anyhoo, I'm getting distracted.
During that time I remember thinking that the screaming would never end.
The endless nappy changes would never end.
I thought I would NEVER drink a warm cup of tea again.
I thought I would spend the rest of my LIFE singing Barney songs at 2am every morning, rocking a crying baby while pinching myself to stay awake while trying to get her to sleep.
"This too shall pass"
I should have listened. Because one day, you wake up......................
and they are going on CAMP people.
For 5 days.
With all their mates and a teacher you've barely said Hello to before.
And they're excited beyond belief. And they give you a taste of those early days because again, they don't sleep all night. This time from excitement and not from a sore tummy.
You're excited for them. And you're hoping they enjoy every minute. And you're Scared. Freaking sh*tless.
And your thought process totally changes
I thought about it.... but you'd probably never live that one down. I love you my Tayla Wayla ... so so very much! x
