Look who decided to pay me a visit during my nap before work tonight. I can’t even be mad at the fact that I need to sleep for at least 2 more hours.
Today has been a tough day for Ashtyn and by association it has been tough for me.
It doesn’t help that I started out with a negative outlook on the day because Lindy forgot to tell me that she works late tonight. I don’t think most of the male population understands how hard it can be to stay at home with a child. Today I am alone with Ashtyn from 8AM - 6:30PM. I am her sole source of entertainment, attention, food, diaper changes, you name it. It’s hard to be ‘on’ for that long with no help.
Ashtyn has been constipated for 2 days and not herself. Today, she finally pooped (7 times before 2PM and once on my hand).
She has been very needy today and cries if I set her down to change her diaper or tie my shoe.
My arms and shoulders are sore from holding her and my legs and back hurt from wearing her and standing / walking all day.
But it’s moments like this picture (which was taken after an emotional diaper change) that keep me sane.
Raising children ain’t always easy but it sure is rewarding.
This has been a rant.
Ashtyn, I love when you crawl into bed and cuddle me, but daddy needs a few more hours of sleep before going back into work tonight.
You make it very hard to leave you.
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. If you know me then you know work has been crazy these last few days. Just turn on the news and you’ll see what I mean.
Thank you for all your kind words and support. You guys are the best.
