DS is just over 10 months old. I know he's a high maintenance kid...and I do realize that things ARE better than they were back in our colic/pre-MSPI-diagnosis days. But...seriously, I feel like I'm barely hanging on by a thread. I'm a teacher so I'm hoping that things will get somewhat better in the summer when I'm home and able to focus on DS more. But between DS being up at the crack of dawn (I'm talking 5:30/6:30 every single morning), going to work and teaching all day long, coming home to a baby who needs constant attention, is teething, can't go to sleep on his own (we'd start sleep training but I didn't think you were supposed to do that if they're sick/teething and he's been both this month), is up at night, is going through an eating strike, whines and yells (because he's teething? mad? could be anything...) all evening when we're home with him, washing bottles, doing laundry, trying to find time to go grocery shopping, trying to make dinner with a DS who wants that constant attention, checking papers, making lesson plans, cleaning the house (HA)...I just can't do it all. I'm NOT doing it all. DH feels the same way I do...we're just completely BURNT OUT.
Don't get me wrong, I absolutely love DS. But we'd always talked about having two kids....and with the way things have gone with DS and being 10 months in and still feeling completely frazzled, frustrated, and exhausted, we are 99% sure that he will be a one and only. I can't go through this again.
Anyone else feeling the same?
