Yesterday she was super grouchy. Today we have fever and vomit. Motherhood comes with good and icky.

I need more time. Working 12 hours a day and feeding a nursing baby all night is draining me. It is doing it more emotionally than physically. I am a strong person but I miss my kids and home. Seeing my husband every once in a while would be nice too. Am I complaining? Yes, I am. Everyone seems to think I am one of the easiest going strongest people they have met. I may be at times but I am still human. I need support and to be understood. I have dreams still. I want to better my life. I feel like a failure some days and other days I am amazed at what I can accomplish. The extraordinary seems normal to me like raising a large family on a modest income and the "normal" of others seems so foreign to me. Complaining about the size of your house and that your new car is the wrong color are just not problems I understand. Rant over.... it may continue at any time.

Today I am proud to be the parent I am. I have met many parents out there who really are on a different plane than myself. I know I am not perfect but man some people need to read the manual....

My day was long but only started to get stressful after being away from my children for 14 hours. Solution. ... snuggle with infant and nurse as the weight of my Fall Mother figure rests heavily on my chest. My center was touched but not quite found. I need more time with my kids......
Dinner tonight. .... vegetable pasta covered in cheese with mushrooms and two boiled eggs on the side. My husband made it all. I would have jazzed it up a bit more with some herbs and spices but it was pretty good.

Way to go baby. We have been trying for a while to get Etta to eat something. She nurses fine and will take a bottle when she has to but she won't have anything to do with babyfood. At 9 months it is good to see her trying something :) .
