Here Is To The Dad!!

This past week Jane had to got five shots. None of us were too thrilled about it, and Jane was the first to show her displeasure. A few days after her shots she was being extremely fussy. She was never quite content during the day, and at night she was up every few hours. After a few nights of this I was a complete wreak. Lack of sleep is something that I do not handle well at all. So on that second morning, Derek went in late to work and took care of Jane so I could get to sleep. Last weekend, he also stayed up with her so I could get in some solid blocks of sleep. Needless to say he saved me. I am so grateful for a husband who loves me so much. He never complains about anything. Even when I feel bad that the house is a mess, dinner is not made, and I am still in my pj's when he comes home from work...he is just happy to see us!! I honestly do not know how anyone can raise a child alone. Derek has been my strength through everything and I owe my sanity to him.

You are so good to count your blessings! I used to apologize to Jay every day when he came home to a messy house, and dinner not ready. Then one day I realized I was doing my best, and I told him I wasn't going to apologize for doing my best - it's depressing. I was much happier, when I could focus on the good.
