It's noon.

I am still in my pyjamas.

I have not brushed my hair or my teeth.

I haven't had a chance to eat yet today.

Ruby has been awake since 4am which means that I... have been awake since 4am.

It's time for her to eat and all I want is to do is feed her so she will go to sleep so I can have a nap. But she has only drank a little of her bottle and spits it out and won't drink anymore.

Just when I think I will never make it through the day... she looks up and me and does this:

Clever little devil.

I know if they weren't so cute who knows if the human race would have survived!

I never knew that brushing my teeth took so much valuable time until having Colin. Seriously, every little thing that I do has to be done quickly and without hesitation because I might miss my chance. He doesn't sleep much during the day so I am constantly rushing. Which is so ironic because I thought being home would be so boring. Not that I don't get lonely and frustrated, I do. But I have such little time to think of anything in any depth that time usually flies right on by. But don't worry. I promise that you will soon be able to brush your teeth with regular frequency. Not necessarily when you want to but you will be able to do it at least once a day.

Hey, sorry about the bfeeding challenges. I am convinced that the crazy bfeeding advocates know how hard it can be but LIE about it, which makes the rest of us who struggle feel bad. But we are the normal ones, I am sure of it.

Sending you and that beautiful little girl lots of love!!

She is adorable! Now let's have a nice convo with your husband about occasionally letting you sleep and getting up. I think once a week, he could.
