Thank goodness Saturday is starting out to be a much better than yesterday. Boy, it was one of the toughest days I’ve had recently with Mark. He woke up every hour on Thursday night and at 6:30 Friday morning, Michael announced that Mark is awake and he attempted to change Mark’s dirty diaper.
Two issues with this - one, he’s not allowed to pick Mark up from his crib (he did, and carried him to the changing table ACROSS THE ROOM before I could get out of bed –I freaked out a little). Two, he opened up the dirty diaper and Mark peed. If you have a little baby boy, you know how messy this can get. And it got messy.
When I got into the nursery, still groggy from lack of sleep, I see a baby who is covered in pee and poop, pee all over the changing pad and table, and two proud little boys because they thought they were being very helpful. I don’t think I handled the situation all the well. I couple of choice words might have slipped out of my mouth.
It did not get any better from there. Mark was cranky all day and would not go down for a nap. I had to hold him most of the day and could not get much done, which was so frustrating. Did I mention that M was out of own? Thank goodness, I was able to take Mark and the boys over to my in-laws for a couple of hours.
