My daughter is a little over 8 months and she has been waking up regularly for the past week. I'm not sure if it is a growth spurt, overstimulation, or the process of her growing, but I'm so frustrated!
The problem is, I'm so tired....so exhausted...so exasperated AND I live on my own so I have no one to help me and I'm literally YELLING at her to go back to sleep. Which actually is funny, because when I do she DOES! If I don't yell, she stays up and giggles and coo's. I love my daughter VERY much and please don't say anything mean to me because I'm trying my hardest. (So if you have negative comments, I'm so sleep deprived right now... I'll probably snap at you too!!...so keep them to yourself!) All I really need to hear is some positive suggestions or ideas?
I know its hard to say things to people without hurting their feelings, but honestly....all Mother's have been there and I just need a place to vent and have people show me some respect :)
LOL! Also, since I work in a school system I am CONSTANTLY around children and even my poor students are hearing the wrath of my frustration. I don't actually yell at them because well....I don't, but I have had a thin ice type of attitude this week :(
