In It Together

on May 31, 2013

You tell me that we’re in this together, that you’ll do anything and everything I need. Yet then you turn around and do the opposite. You abandon me and the clustering of a growth spurt for a cold you’ve passed on.

Then, as I reach a point where I dread every little noise, that it means another constant feed, you pull the hormone card and tell me to calm down without realising how hard I am fighting in all of this.

Threatening a move to formula because at 5am after over 24 hours almost of being a human dairy, is not gonna help calm me. It’ll have me walk out the room. But you try any of it.

Worrying about how the 3 hour mark is sneaking up and you’ve still not rested.

Worrying that there won’t be a weight gain.

Worrying that your son has a cold that has skipped you so how can you pass on any immunity?

Worrying that in over 5 years the midwife’s never seen two red breasts.

Worrying that promises are merely words because we’re not in this together and it’s all on me as you sleep soundly beside me with a finally sleeping baby and birdsong for company.
