The last I wrote I was not in a good place.
The next morning I called my doctor and told him he had to find an alternative, anything would be better than the upset baby (and mum) that weaning was producing. He had expected my call & had checked into the medication & found no evidence of adverse side effects in babies over three months other than a bit of irritability. So we’re back to breastfeeding, but only three times a day.
I can feel the fog lifting a little now. Things seem easier and I feel, I don’t now, lighter maybe. I’m far less irritable and things aren’t all a struggle.
My motivation for “stuff” has returned finally and I’m enjoying just dong the simple things again. This is a good thing considering we are moving in nine days and I need to get the house packed up. Looking through old photos etc is fun and the purging of a lot of crap around the house is good for the soul. The move isn’t huge, we’re only going next door, swapping with my parents actually, but it’s been great for getting rid of excess stuff.
I’m wondering if the kids are noticing the difference too? The Girl has been much better this week, so much less stubborn and much more helpful, also good with the whole packing and moving situation.
So that’s where I’m at (and why I’ve been absent) at the moment. Things are getting easier & hopefully there will be more sunshine in my world soon too.
