*This was true for the first couple months of Lily's life
when I didn't yet have her on a schedule, and was
breastfeeding on demand.
*It's true when she's unpredictable (from sickness,
teething, during travel, etc).
*And it's true when her nap time = my nap time
(especially before she slept through the night, and now
during pregnancy, both times of extreme sleep depravity).
This is not always the norm, but it is a Mom reality.
I love being a mom, but it's not all gummy smiles and precious moments.
Just keeping it real, folks.
