Well, thank you all.

I needed those reassurances of normality, to hear I’m not the only one who sometimes wishes their spouse would fall backwards off the planet.

I’m feeling somewhat more sane today.

Grumpy still, but not crazy. I might even let T. do the post-in-reply-to-goading that he’s always fantasising about.

(And Dawn, you are right. That was in fact the THIRD car we have written off in the last eighteen months… You have to laugh, don’t you?)

The last couple of days haven’t been as bad. Note the italics on as.

We have had a couple of lucky breaks, though Buddha Baby has still been waking frequently during the night. Including a nice long playtime from 2am last night, that involved an hour and a half of cooing / squealing / throwing legs between cot bars / rolling / tumbling / rocking back and forth on his knees.

But at least it was cheerful. And at least he hasn’t done the tearful, near hysterical four hours of tantrum before finally passing out in sheer exhaustion at 11pm. And That Is Golden.

Meanwhile, it is no surprise to see my hard-won (meagre) milk supply has dropped for the gazillionth time, so I get to play The Endless Pumpage for a few days, again.

It’s just laughable really, what I do to myself. I really shouldn’t complain.

    I don’t know what was going on (I can’t seem to get into the password protected post) but I’m glad things are a bit better today. Hope your milk supply bounces right back (so to speak) and that today is a lot better for you. Thinking of you!

    So glad that you feel more normal today.

    Lack of sleep really messes with a person.

    So sorry your milk supply is dropping. If it makes you feel even slightly better, mine is, too. I can’t even evoke a let down when I pump any more.

    I think you’ve done well on the milk supply front to get this far. I know you want to get further, I just wanted to put in a quick “yay for you!” between now and the next time you reattach the pump.

    I often wish A would drop off the planet, at least for a while to give me a bit of breathing space…

    take care x
