My kids have never broken me. BUT yesterday, they did it, they broke me. A sleep deprived mum, with no sleep for 3 days from a screaming little boy did this, along with a 4 year old that wanted and needed everything.
I do feel for Taj and this teething is something I am sure I won't miss and neither will he. Taj is cutting his incisor teeth and I have heard they are the worst. I remember Keely struggling a bit with them, but not this much. It is not nice when you see your child in pain and panadol does nothing. I even tried the panadol for the first 2 hours and then nurofen the second 2 hours. It did nothing for him. He still cried, arched his back in pain and curled his toes under. He has also slept with me for the past 3 nights in a row.
how we have started today
I am not sure if it is teething and the sleep deprivation that has made me feel defeated, there is so much going on in my life this could have been the icing on the cake; (oh, how I would love a piece of cake right now)! I am sure like me, most of you, if not all of you have felt defeated in life in some way or another. It is however interesting how we can pick ourselves up, dust it all off and move on to the next phase in our lives. That sounds all too calm, and I know with the dusting there is pain and with the pain there is a lot of hurt to work through. But being through the things I have been through I know I will again pick my self up, dust myself off and move on to a new phase in my life.
I told you all a few times that I had hope that some things would work out in my life. Only last week I spoke about this. This hope has gone. When I have worked through my pain and I am ready for the next phase in my life I will tell you about my hope that is no longer. For now it is all about my beautiful children, myself, (although think I am meant to be first), my family, my friends, and my lovely Little Pinwheel.
Have you ever felt defeated in life? If so how do you deal with picking yourself off the ground? I start with chocolate, and lots of it! I also run and swim. They are the main things that help me clear my head ready to work through my pain.
For the record, while putting this post together, Taj pulled out all the toilet rolls out of the cupboard and ripped the toilet paper off! There are times when you cannot help but laugh and this is one of them!
