Mommy Barometer

Here’s what I’ve decided: a new mother’s eyebrows are the barometer of how well she’s dealing with life. My unruly brows indicate that I am not only preoccupied with something other than my self, but that I may not actually open my eyes enough to notice or care how I look most of the time. I wear my glasses everyday to hide the scary brows and the bags under my eyes. I wonder how much my hubby is biting his tongue over my less than attractive appearance. Poor guy.

Last night we had Jackson sleep in his crib for the first time. I can’t say it was an overwhelming success. He still woke up every 2-3 hours. Ugh. But I’m hoping that will improve. However, I missed the easy access of the co-sleeper for feeding him and plopping him back in the bassinet. Lazy mom. Sleep training sucks.

But he sure is cute during the day πŸ™‚

  1. You’re not kidding. He is about as cute as they make ’em. And growing! My goodness! Congrats on getting through the first night in the crib. My husband already dreads the transition from our room to their room and ours aren’t even born yet. πŸ˜‰

    And don’t worry about the eyebrows. I’m rocking the “unruly” style and pretending that it’s “in.” At least you have an excuse.

    • oh lentil, he’s growing so fast!
      the first night in the crib was VERY hard on momma and daddy. we had the video monitor and the noise monitor “just in case,” even though his crib is literally 6 feet from the end of our bed on the other side of the wall.
      but in better news, i took the time to go get the brow beasts waxed today πŸ™‚ i look and feel SO MUCH BETTER

  2. Stand strong mama! Sleep training is hard but you will be patting yourself on the back when other people complain about how their kids keep waking them up but yours is sleeping well

  3. Oh this is too funny!!!! I feel the SAME way!!!! My eyebrows have been looking just terrible. I just don’t have time or care that much, until I notice the unruly bush that has sprouted. I am really trying to make a conscious effort to keep them under control!

    Way to go on the move to the crib! Definitely a hard transition, but hopefully in a few short weeks everyone will be getting a lot more sleep!
