THIS IS MY LIFE... HA!
I am sitting in our living room right now listening to my daughter scream in her crib... it's been 34 minutes (and counting). I can say with honesty that I love and adore Avery... but the last 7 months have worn me out... to the bone. The last week has been exhausting and I'm just not sure what to do. A couple night ago I woke up to her crying six times in one night, she is militant against napping, she will scream for an hour instead of taking a nap, continual fussiness... that is a recipe for insanity if you ask me.
So, I guess I am writing this for a couple of reasons... one, is to ask for people to pray for us... I don't even know what to pray for, I feel like I have prayed for her to sleep or nap about a million times, so perhaps your prayers will be more effective. Another reason is to elicit any ideas... I know I am opening myself up to a lot of advice (some good and some just overwhelming), but I guess I am at the end of my rope. So, if you feel so inclined, leave a comment and let me know if you have any wisdom for me as a mom. I would greatly appreciate it.
I don't want this to cause too much concern... I just thought it might be refreshing to have some honesty about our reality right now. I'm sure this will pass... well, I'm sure it will pass at least when she graduates high school and leaves for college. So that's reassuring.
Thankful for you my family & friends. ~Rachel Pin It
