Nothing good can possibly come of writing at 10:20pm after more than an hour of trying to put my 5 week old to bed and failing miserably. But I think every mom should be allowed a rant, especially at the 5 week mark when sleep has gotten slightly better, but let’s face it, I’m still… Continue reading About a newborn – the 5 week mark rant
