The morning progresses like this: pots and pans, roll around on the floor whining, punch Mommy in the face because her eyes are slamming shut as she tried not to pass out on the couch, run (heel drop running too) down the hall at full speed and slam into sissy's door. Cry, yell, laugh maniacally, fart, quietly do something secret in the dining room and then come prancing out smiling, cry whine. Ugghhhhhhhhhhh. Clearly we need naps.
I take the beast to his room and blackout the damn place like midnight. Turn on some Enya and rock his bratty ass into a coma while texting my husband that I might eat our child today. Then, I get a text from a friend. Our other childhood friend has been battling her uterus for years and fiercely as of late because she is 23 weeks pregnant and leaking. My friends text simply said "Lucas is in heaven now". She lost the battle. And damnit if I didn't start bawling my face right off. I had read about another woman's journey with this and I plan to forward her onto my friend because I feel like hearing you are not the only one makes it a little less horrifying. A little. You feel like less of a wreck on a deserted island. I can relate but my experience was a little different. I have to say I rocked Aidan much longer than necessary and just cried on him. I am grateful for my luck with him. He is my miracle boy that wasn't supposed to be. He is the only baby I could ever make or will ever make. Even when I want to tie him to the ceiling I still love him.
Moral of the story is that children are crazy, parenting is crazy, life is crazy. So, listen to some Enya and calm your ass down from time to time.
