Well We have our tree up but still have a few other decorations to get up.

AFM: I really need this baby to come out by Tuesday. If you are a praying mama, please pray the baby comes this Friday.

Re: Harvest Babies Weekly Chat 11/28-12/4

Hey girls, just need to vent quickly.

Points of frustration in my life:

#1: My mom is "visiting" for a week. When I told her I didn't really NEED help she said, "OH! I'm not coming to HELP! I'm coming to play with my grandkids and have a vacation from MY work." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?!? 'Cause I need someone vacationing at my house with my 2.5 week old! GAH!

#2: Pretty sure baby girl has thrush and she was up 'til THREE last night crying. I felt so bad for her, but I am SO exhausted! Because of point #3....

#3: DH WILL NOT WAKE UP!!!! I mean, I understand... the boys have been up a lot. BUT he keeps just falling asleep in their room, which makes them wake up MORE and he's not training them, he's just doing what he can to get sleep. So then when I NEED him he's too tired to help me. Whine.

#4: DH is back at work this week. So I have all three kids, and my MOTHER to deal with all by myself.

#5: I'm super emotional and exhausted and I'm starting to feel kind of disconnected from everything. I just feel like no one is taking care of ME!!! And I know I sound like a princess, but dadgumit I just had a BABY, someone ought to be caring for me. And I feel like I'm having to take care of all the people who should be caring about me. Oh well, push on, right?

That's all. Sorry to randomly dump on you guys, but I just need to get it OUT. Especially with my mom standing over me, undermining my authority and "disciplining" MY children right in front of me, and questioning every move I make. I'm gonna shoot her.

Anyway, in other news, glad almost everyone's babies are here! Only a couple left!!!! Hope everyone is having a better day than me! hahaha.

Re: Harvest Babies Weekly Chat 11/28-12/4

I'm gonna try to jump back in here now and try to get on daily again Hopefully life will be getting back to our new normal and into a good routine soon now that DH is back at work and it is just me and the girls at home!

Lauren- I hope this week goes by fast for you. I can't imagine having someone saying in your home after having a baby. DH asked me if we could have his mom come stay for a few weeks after Kelsie was born and I laughed at him because I thought he was joking...nope, totally serious. (his parents only live 40 minutes away anyways) I told him noooo way His parents did come to visit the day we got home from the hospital...DH had to get dinner together for everyone and feed Alyssa and I had to get MIL a snack and a cup of tea. I was SOOO irritated and my hoo haa hurt SO bad and all I wanted to do was sit down! DH and I agreed after they left that it would have been so much easier on us if they would have just stayed home. I love when people come over to "help" like that!

I was trying to keep up, but missed that you had a GIRL! Congrats! I'm having a hard time adjusting to pink after just one boy - I bet it was quite a shock for you!

I hope that all went well and you are enjoying your new little one by now!

I don't think you sound like a princess. Most cultures around the world realize that it's a new mom's biggest job to take care of the baby, so everyone else takes care of her for awhile. I wish it was that way here, too.

Hoping that you'll be able to make up the sleep tonight.
