I have not been up to much, primarily because I am SO tired.
As in, cannot move from the couch to get water, tired. Like, taking a shower makes me exhausted just by thinking about it.
Dmitri got his first tooth (teeth?), which has kept him up at night. Plus, he is perfecting his crawling. Evidently the bed is the perfect place for practice, and in the middle of the night I will find him playing down by my feet. I'm a pretty light sleeper, and his antics rouse me. It's not as if I can restrain him from moving around at night. (Side note: Our mattress is on the floor, so safety is not an issue..He can crawl off the mattress with ease. I don't want the Parent Police chasing me down.)
One night this week, I was up with him nine times before 5 AM. Yes, 9. As in, neuf, nove, nueve. And he has been waking up by 7 AM.
How do you say to a seven-month-old, "You know, I don't think this whole relationship thing is going to work out. And it's not me, it's definitely you."
So I have exhaustion headaches, and I'm fighting off a cold. I had a UTI (cranberry juice & vodka for mama) last week, and I think I might be getting a stomach bug.
I'm sorry to whine, but I just can't go on like this. I have classes, and work, and papers, and dinner to make, and laundry...I've already missed several classes, and it's the first of February!
Sometimes, parenting sucks.
Any suggestions, aside from inserting a caffeine drip?
