A pain in my head
where my brain stem
meets my neck sounds
are too loud, lights
are too bright, moving
makes the room swim
caffeine and painkiller
two punches that will
knock me out, I hope.

    1. My secret is I’m only allowed to sleep if she sleeps during the day and right now, she sleeps for 12 hours each night from 10pm to 10am. Best baby ever. So I earned this since she’s my fourth and final baby.

      First boy did not sleep for more than 2 hours at a stretch for the first 14 months. We were like zombies. We co slept with #1 and #2, then my mom bought us a crib for #3. It was easier to have a crib in the bedroom with the side down. Sometimes there were boys all over the bed, by then we were up to a King sized bed. I had severe sleep deprivation and exhaustion those years were a blur of toddler boy antics, gymnastics and carrying a baby with me everywhere in an over the shoulder baby holder while I gardened. One day ask me to tell you the story of Spider Man and the pillows.

      In the evenings, my Bear gets home and he feeds, plays with and changes Girlie, takes the Sentinel to play rehearsal and takes Girlie to visit her great grand parents or my mom.


Any thoughts on the above post are appreciated! Otherwise, I think I must be living under a rock.
