So it is Monday of my first week back at work so you know that my body decided it was a grand ole time to have my period arrive. Don't get me wrong I am grateful for the 10 weeks and 3 days she stayed away after Jayden was born but did she have to come today? My tummy hurts and I am irritable not the best condition to train a new person. Oh well such is life.
Yesterday after getting home I noticed Jayden had a sharp edge on one of his nails. Being the good Momma I am I decided to cut it right away so he would not hurt himself with it. I could not find the baby nail clippers so what did I use? The giant big people toe clippers. What do you think happened?? I chopped off part of his thumb and he screamed and cried. I cried and my hubby got mad. Because making me feel worse about what happened is the best way to deal with the situation of course. I cleaned it up and put a band aid on it. Not a great idea as he decided putting his thumb in his mouth was a good idea and could have choked on it. Then to top it off last night the child would not go to sleep, he was screaming like crazy and I thought I was going to lose it. I tried a bottle, his binky, swaddling him, swing, bouncing in my arms etc. Finally I got him to calm down and fall asleep, then I put him in the bassinet and it started again. He ended up sleeping in my arms on the couch. I hope he does not repeat that again.
