15 March 2011

can this day be over already??

I am having one of those mornings. The ones where you just want to pull your hair out.

I stayed up late last night to watch The Bachelor, and After The Final Rose... cause I am obsessed.

So.. I was in bed close to 1am. I NEVER go to bed that late.


Of course, this is the day that Bennett decides he is going to get up at 4am. He cried, I fed him, he cried and I comforted him, he cried some more. Ugh.


He did manage to fall back to sleep for a little bit, but since he's been awake.... it's been nothing but fuss and crank all morning. I don't know what to do.


Needless to say I'm tired. And I guess I am just in a complaining mood. I'm sorry, I know it's really not that bad. I have a lot to be grateful for and I shouldn't let a temper tantrum get on my nerves so much. It's just that when you're tired, the last thing you want to hear is a screaming baby. Ya know?


Ugh.

Those days are the worst and they always seem to happen when you haven't slept, or got to bed late, or have something really important to do that day, etc. UGH! Hopefully you all get some sleep tonight! :)

That picture is adorable and hilarious! :)

You CAN'T be in a bad mood after taking that picture - LOL! That is seriously magazine quality. Looks like an ad for something...hmm, maybe a diaper cream that's not working? Oh my gosh, I'm DYING! LOVE it! ♥

OH NO! That was us yesterday. Aus woke up early and wouldn't take a nap AT ALL. I hope Bennett helps make mommys day a little bit easier...hang in there!!! *hugs*

Karly said...

Aww, that is NEVER fun. My kids always seem to do that on the days when I really really really need some peace. Is he maybe cutting another tooth? That is usually what I check first when the kids don't seem to have anything else wrong with them.

Natalie said...

Oh my goodness I have mornings like that all the time! I'm definitely not the best morning person but I do get up with my husband at 5:45 to get him off to work...and then either stay up or go back to bed until the little guy wakes up! But I have those mornings, I'm sure all Moms do! But look at that perfect photo! WOWZA!

Oh my God, that picture is priceless. I am putting it up on my desktop wallpaper. Sorry B is being a grouchy pants.

Lea also known as "CiCi" said...

One day Bennett's wife is going to love having all these adorable baby pictures of him.

I feel your pain and I imagine any mother does. There are just days that are that way with little ones, but you will live over it and look back with fond memories on all of it.

Hoping tomorrow is a cool, calm and collected day for you and Bennett. Smiles!

Casey Martinez said...

It is so tiring when the little ones whine all day. Daisy has been cutting a tooth and has been hanging on my leg crying a lot. She wants to be held 24/7 and it is just too hard. I feel yah. Hang in there momma! Great picture of your cutie pie!

Amber said...

Oh those days are SOOOOO NOOOOOO FUN!!!!!

However, I love B's emotions in the photo

Stefanie Brown said...

Ahhhh!!! This is an incredible shot! Wow!

Kiara Buechler said...

Ugh, what a waste of time last night was. I am so annoyed, I don't know if I am going to watch the next season. Hubby wants to keep watching though, he says it is fun to make fun of the show.

I hope B sleeps nice and long for you tonight.

Kari said...

Oh, mandy, the things we do for good TV. I was too emotionally involved in Allie's Bachelorette to allow myself to watch the Bachelor, but all myfriends watch it and HATE the guy!!! Now I wish I had watched it.

That picture of Bennett is pure sweetness. XOXO

Can't wait for next TUESDAY!!!

Jamie Rubeis said...

Oh my gosh! Best expression EVER!!! He even has a little frohawk going on! LOVE IT!

Stephanie Thigpen said...

Okay, it's official. I am completely IN LOVE with Bennett after this picture. HE'S JUST SO DANG CUTE! You, on the other hand, I want to give a big huge hug to! :( I hope tomorrow is fantastical!
