Rough times, when baby is little. I know each day and night seems like it lasts a week, but the time in general when your baby is little goes by SO
FAST. They change so quickly at that age and it's so easy to not enjoy it, because of the sleep deprivation and the isolation and the stress.
That first year after my son was born, I felt like I was living in this weird bizarro world by myself while the rest of the world went on happily and
normally. It felt surreal and isolated.
You and your wife have got to get BACK ON THE SAME TEAM. If you two can remember you are on the same side, and go to one another for support instead
of competing with each other for who is more tired and who does more, you just might manage to make things easier and even enjoy your little
How great would it be if you could say to your wife "Baby, I am so tired and so stressed out. I feel like I'm going to go crazy" and she responded
"Sweetheart, I know, I know you are so tired, just hang in there and I'll be there in a few days." Or if she said to you "I feel like I'm not holding
it all together very well" and you respond "You're doing great, I know exactly how you feel but we'll get through it together."
That may seem like some Leave it to Beaver snip but man, if one of you could make the first move of NOT trying to get the other one to see how much
you do, that may be all it takes for you two to get on the same team.
Praying for you both!
