Fussy days, cranky nights
Tired and hurting today.
Had a typical new parent experience last night…Jacob was pretty fussy all night long. Nothing would calm him down, so eventually Laureen showed me the substitute pacifier trick of the back of the pinky finger. That calmed him down. It also calmed me down to the point of knocking me out until 3:30 a.m….
I’m hurting because our bed is nearly a commune these days. If the bottom of the bed were home plate, you’d have Chewie at catcher, Laureen at first, Jacob at second in a Snuggle Nest, and me at third. Of course, Jacob has elected to play shortstop, which winds up crowding me to roughly the leftmost foot-width of the bed. Combine that with falling asleep in my clothes last night, and you’ve got a Kevin who needs advil and icy hot.
I’m glad I have a job. I’m just worn out right now.
