Fat Lips and Scraped Babies

Posted on | July 31, 2010 | 2 Comments

This weekend is not looking great.

For one thing, J is still not sleeping. At all. Honestly, last night he was up from 10-12 and again from 1:30 – 4:30 and again for good at 6:30. I feel like my eyes are going to fall out of their sockets.

For another thing, when I got home from work I was playing on the floor with J. He pulled up on my in-law’s end table and proceeded to chuck a stone coaster at my face. AT MY FACE. I now have a fat lip that is all purple and bruised. And I can’t even be mad at anyone because, well, J did it. And he didn’t mean anything by it.

And then this morning AJ ran over J. Literally. J was happily playing in the floor and my mother-in-law asked AJ if he’d like to go outside. He apparently did, very much, and proceeded to fly towards the back door, straight over J. His back nail scraped J across the face and J hit the floor.Again… couldn’t really be mad at anyone. AJ certainly didn’t mean it. I don’t think he even saw J until after he floored him.

But it’s not looking like this is going to be one of those magical weekends where everything runs smoothly. I let Husband sleep in this morning so at least one of us has enough sleep to make the drive back to Savannah. I am THIS CLOSE to popping a sleeping pill and waking up on Sunday night.

Anyhow, we’re on the road again this afternoon, back to the teeny tiny apartment crammed full of way too much furniture. And then we start our regular routine on Monday… I go to work, Husband goes to work, and J goes *gulp* to daycare. Maybe once we get into a routine J will sleep better. Or maybe I will resort to drugging him. Either way, there will be sleep…  someday. And less fat lips.

    I'm so sorry you're having such a hard time. I hate those periods when life just runs you ragged. I'm always surprised by how long we're capable of existing in such a state as well. There should be a point where we just stop functioning, right?

    I hope your fat lip heals swiftly! My in law's always snicker at me when I remove everything heavy and/or hurlable from their living room when we visit, I guess they've forgotten how freaking dangerous babies can be!!

    Oh honey. ((hugs)) I am so there with you soon. Apartment, holding onto a house that won't sell – it just doesn't seem fair. Also, Bella has become a terrible sleeper lately. Hopefully it gets better for both of us. I'm here if you want to talk/vent.
