One Day You Will Miss This Craziness
One Day You Will Miss This Craziness
08/09/2018

My six-month-old little girl is on a new kick where she screams pretty much all night long.  My husband is wonderful, but there's only so much he can do.  After a week of us both not sleeping, I headed to my Mom and Dad's house, because my mom is the ultimate Grandma and can give me a break while I can take a shower, and my husband can get some needed sleep.  

This morning, my mom found me sobbing as I stood over my baby's crib, as I was just overwhelmed and frustrated by this whole experience.  She swept in, picked up my baby, fed her and let me sleep for a few hours.

Later, I was in the car with my baby in the back seat.  She was finally sleeping, and in the midst of all these emotions I heard your voice, saying "one day you will miss this craziness."  And I remember you talking about women who have lost their children in accidents.  That's when I said to myself that I was lucky to only have a crying baby, and this too will pass.  

Thank you for reminding us new moms that we are not alone!

Nikki
