Parenting Henri

this is about henri, and the parenting thereof

Up Early on a Sunday Morning 2007/08/26

Filed under: side effects — lee lee @ 8:55 am

well, 8:42 AM isn’t THAT early…but i’ve been up for a couple hours…

it’s my theory that pregnancy is so freaking long (just imagine carrying around someone you love for 9 months straight!) because it takes that long to adjust to how life is going to be once the little poop is here.  that, and the “side effects.”

no one could tell if i was a morning person or evening person, because i just liked sleeping all the time.  well, guess what.  henri’s mom is now officially a morning person.  i wake up with the birds (and bentley) and am ready to go.  i mean, i’m not in a good mood or anything but i’m wide-eyed and ready to change the world.  yesterday morning, i even hung up all my new maternity clothes.  i haven’t done that since, well, never…

other side effects and their double meanings:

think it’s gross that your boobs are leaking? get ready to have spit up all over you.  i’m sure that feels much better…

annoyed that you have to pee 3-4 times a night? more annoyed that your bladder demands attention about every 30 minutes during the day, most of which are false alarms??  that’s just about how often your little one is going to cry out for you, usually because they don’t like sitting around in a wet nappie.

stressed out and cranky because you’ve lost that special groove with your mattress and can’t get a good night’s sleep? wait until your helpless offspring is in the next room (or down a flight of stairs if you’re me) breathing so quietly you can’t even make out the palpitations on your high-tech video mobile.  you’ll sleep soundly through that, i’m sure!

getting to the end of your rope when it comes to an eating schedule? the fact that you’re hungry every four hours is merely your body’s way of preparing you for feeding duty.  love that schedule!  it’s not going anywhere…
