So i know its been a while since my last post but there have been times that i just didn’t feel the urge to put down in words how it was all going. When you start sounding like a broken record to yourself you know it is not the time to share your thoughts. Sufficed to say i am glad another month has gone by and i am now only 6 weeks away from welcoming the triplets into this world!
Sleep – well who needs it. I have learnt to manage on very little these days, and although i get tired, i am learning to pace myself a bit better. I am generally awake by about 3.30am and up by about 6.30am. The 6.30am start is more due to the fact that my little 15 month old is not too keen on a lie in. I usually get a yelp from the other room or a ‘Mama’ which means rise and shine another day is here. We have had a couple of weeks of sleeping through the night – those mothers who love to tell you about how long their little one sleeps – i don’t listen to anymore! But there has been the odd night where, even after the 5 minute wait to settle, i have had to go in. We recently had another sinus infection to contend with. The poor fella was miserable – as you would if not able to breath properly. So after the 5 minute wait in i went to a very upset little boy. I lifted him up and cuddled him for a little while. It was still pitch black in his room so i couldn’t really see too much. As i sat there sushing him and letting him know everything was all right i leant down to kiss his forehead. To my joy i realised that i had just kissed a lump of snot. So while sushing and cuddling i was also gagging and desperately trying to get the snot off my lips. This is all in the name of love and truly only something a mother would go through!
Went to visit a mother quads last week – best tip ever – get colour coded feeding charts!!! I’m off to google a feeding chart!
