My daughter is starting her stranger anxiety phase……… and I have no idea how long it’ll last. Our pediatrician said it usually starts at 9 months and could last anywhere from a few weeks to several months.
“Don’t worry little one, mama’s right here…”
While it’s sweet and endearing that she always wants me, I’m feeling burned out from the constant holding, coddling, feeding… apparently no one else can soothe her like I can. I’m the first person she sees in the morning, the last person she wants at night. Then she wakes up at midnight wanting to play for 1-2 hours.
I know one day I’ll miss this, but not right now. Nope. Right now what I want is sleep.
Do you ever feel like you just want a break from mommyhood? That’s me right now.
There I said it. I suck.
