Persephone: Parent

A fine site


on June 26, 2013

I am so tired and everything is such a struggle. He barely sleeps so I barely sleep. I’d developed the ability to actually do things – 5 minute clean, wash up, put the washing on. Now I don’t even time to sleep.

I’m really not sure how much I can cope with and, although I’m calmer than earlier, I’m really not sure I’m meant to be a parent.

There’s a reason why I couldn’t conceive naturally.

Things are only seeming a bit better right now because he’s asleep on me (I daren’t put him down) and the health visitor just left. He’s jumped up a percentile, hence why he needs boobie so often.

And she’s worried about me.

  1. It is normal. Oh so normal. Just know you’re not alone. It’s 3AM here and I’ve been up with screaming twins that woke up my 2 year old (they have a headcold ). And I’m alone. My husband is out of town. And I’m tired. And I want to be sleeping. I haven’t slept for years.

  2. Oh and the subject of sleep will RULE your life for awhile.
