Mama Got Into The Jelly Beans

Yesterday was one of the longest days I've had since the Attic baby was born. Even longer than when I was getting up every two hours to feed her when we came home from the hospital. For some reason, she was incredibly fussy the night before and would only sleep if she was being held. Every time I tried to put her down, she would instantly wake up and cry or scream. It was exhausting. I finally was able to climb into bed at 5 am only to be awoken by the 6:30 alarm telling me it was time to get my son up for school.

To cope with my lack of sleep, I drank a couple of Mountain Dews. That got me through the first half of the day. But I was dragging towards mid-afternoon early evening. So I did what I told myself I wasn't going to do:
jelly beans

 I opened up the bag of Starburst jelly beans that I bought my son for Easter.

Yes, you read me correctly. I ate my son's Easter candy. Now I'm going to have to go out this weekend to fight the crowds and buy him some more. Good thing I hadn't bought his Easter bunny yet or I might have demolished that too.

The things moms do to get through the day!

  1. I feel ya! I have been there and done that! Just remember that your baby girl will eventually let you sleep more. I look at my big 3 year old boy and sometimes miss those sleepless nights. Nah, not really just trying to make you feel better! :)*sending you some virtual energy*
