Monday Bluezzzzzzz

Two weeks have gone by in a flash!  I am full steam back at work and baby girl has just gotten use to her new friends.  The Teacher reassured me that it takes about two weeks for the kiddies to adapt to their new ‘home’ for the day and yes, it took two weeks for her to settle into a new routine.  She is loving it.  Smiles every morning when I go drop her off (yes, they work on the ‘drop and go’ method.  This avoids any water works, both from mom’s and baby girl’s side)  and I am sure she smiles even bigger when she sees daddy when he fetches her.  I trust that she is being taken care of very well.  I have not noticed any weird behaviour, except that she is really tired when she gets home.  There is a little bit of play time with mom and dad.  Bath time. Bottle time. Sleep time. Until…

Baby girl has been waking up once, maybe twice a night.  She drinks her milk, maybe its a dirty nappy and THEN, it takes about an hour to get her back to sleep.  This is between 1 – 3 o’ clock in the morning.  We then have to get up again at around 6 – 6:30, to get ready for work and play school.  I am knackered! Besides that, this cutting teeth thing, is definitely no fun and games. In the beginning it was lots of drooling and chewing stuff and now, well, lets just say it has become a very messy situation.  I am constantly at the washing machine, so that no stains later become anyhow difficult to remove ( just being a little bit paranoid, I know). She also has a runny nose and a bit of a cough, which also makes it harder to stay asleep.  Giving her all sorts of powders and gels, seems only to help for few minutes.  Paracetamol is probably overrated but some may use it.  Giving her frozen toys to chew on also only keeps her entertained for so long.  This too shall past the pros say…

It’s been a rough weekend.  Lots of runny poops and on and off sleeping patterns. But hey, she is still smiling and trying to crawl her way around. As long as baby girl is happy, mommy’s happy (and sleep deprived).

I am now not trying to fall asleep at work…
