So it is Thursday again....
My little one is suffering so badly with her teeth.
She is cutting her back molars and having a very tough time of it.
She has gone from being a very placid and chilled out bub, to a very irritable, almost angry, whiny and sleepless child!
I get no more than an hour or so sleep at a time during the night.
She is constantly on the boob, and when I try and roll my aching body over she goes mad until I roll back and offer the boob again.
When I finally feel like she is settled, and I can roll onto my back and drift into sleep, my hubby starts snoring (every time) and keeps me awake.
BUT I am thankful anyway because this is a very real opportunity to develop my compassion and patience.
I am thankful anyway because I am seemingly strong enough to cope with very little sleep.
I am thankful anyway because during those long dark hours when I am awake, I can appreciate the stillness and the silence of the night, which I just love.
And I am thankful that my hubby is home for a change, even though he snores!
