I can't do this. Not right now, not today. I can't be a good mother today.
I tried and I failed. Same story as yesterday. I feel helpless. There is nothing I can do to make her happy, and unfortunately, the only one she wants is me. She wants to be in my arms and nowhere else.
If I put her down, she cries. If Denny holds her, she cries. Up next to me is all that will do.
If I pull my nipple out of her mouth, she wakes. If I lay her down, she wakes. And cries.
Where is the baby from last week? The independent baby who played alone while I got things done. The sweet baby who would let her Daddy, her Granny, her Nana hold her while I got some time to myself - what happened to her?
Something isn't right. I think she must be teething. How long will this last? I don't think I can take much more.
