Officially a Bad Mom

Because instead of trying to teach my child to love his big boy bed, instead of fighting with him for two hours like we do every day about taking a nap, instead of making him sleep in his bed like he needs to do, instead of listening to him screech that he wants "mommy to sleep floor" next to his bed. . . .

I put on Toy Story. And will gladly let him fall asleep on the couch like he wants to.

Because the baby is finally sleeping. And I am exhausted. And there is only so much fighting and crying and screaming I can handle and this week's allotment is already up.

Whatever. He will sleep in his own bed eventually, right?!

You have a new baby and are trying to learn how to handle both! Cut yourself some slack...you don't hear about 10 year olds still sleeping in cribs, so I think Bjorn will be okay. Keep your sanity and do whatever work for right now!

You're not a bad mommy. You're a mommy who's trying to survive. It'll get better. Promise.
