I know i’ve complained about wonder weeks before, but holy shit this one takes the cake.
Olive is just starting to get into this wonder week (which, by the way, isn’t a week, but lasts for 6 WHOLE WEEKS WTF) and it’s been a nightmare. She is only take 30 minute naps, and as of tonight, she WILL.NOT.GO.TO.BED. And it’s almost like she’s learned how to cry differently right now too, because her cries right now seem…….spiteful. And…dramatic. And………shrill. And…………….filled with such sorrow.
But you know what her cries are really saying?
“YOU, YOU OUT THERE. If you leave me in here alone you will PAY FOR IT TOMORROW I ASSURE YOU!”
Honestly, it really pisses me off that they call it the Wonder “Weeks”. Because they never truly last a week. They last for A MONTH, and i’m not kidding. If you look at the chart below, all those “grey areas” are when shit hits the fan. All the “white sunny areas” are when your baby is nice to you. So seriously……………..about 50% of the time, you’re just trying to placate your really, upset child.
See that chart? I’m at THE BEGINNING of week 42. This is going to last until WEEK 47.
I have to go get my child again.
She’s crying. Again.
