Today was supposed to be the first day back to normal for me, Johnny and Joley. I had my alarm set to get up and pump and feed Joley before the kids had to get up for school. Damn ice ruined the plans. Now, instead of an easy-going day with my kids, I have all 5 kids home because school was cancelled. grrrr
I am extremely disappointed in Mike right now and I need to get it out. He didn’t smoke very much at all while off work for the past 2.5 weeks. He said he smoked probably 5-6 cigarettes that entire time. I spoke with him earlier today and he had already had 5 cigarettes for the day. I don’t understand why you would nearly quit for 2.5 weeks and then start up again. It really hurts me that he doesn’t want to quit smoking for himself and his family. I know there is nothing I can do about it until he wants to do it himself, but it really is upsetting me today. Not to mention, it costs quite a bit to smoke these days. Hopefully he will come to his senses soon about this.
I am going to call an LLL leader tomorrow about this shield issue. I can’t get Joley to latch on more than a few seconds without it. I am hoping to get some help from a pro. 🙂
I ordered a cosleeper with a Target gift card I had. It still cost me $30 so I will be returning it if I don’t like it. As it is though, I am worried about smothering Joley and would prefer her to have a place to lay that is a bit safer than snuggled up next to me… as much as I love having her close, it doesn’t feel the safest. This way, I can move in bed more too. I woke this morning with a sore neck and shoulder from laying in one position all night.
I am on the search for a nursing reminder bracelet… well, basically any bracelet easy to get off and on that is nicer than what I have. I have a “cause” one but it is worn and yucky and the hair rubberbands fall off. I don’t want anything telling me when she nursed last or anything like that. I just can’t remember what side she last ate on without some help. If you have ever used one or know of someone that sells some you like, let me know. I checked on Hyenacart and Etsy but haven’t found anything that just yells “buy me” yet.
