Really bad cold. Cough keeps waking the baby up.
Wife took over last night and banished me to the guest room with some sedating cold remedy. So I’m a bit better this morning. (6 hours sleep consecutive is a miracle these days).
My mom is coming over to watch her while I sleep again today.
How do people do this parenting thing without other people to help? I am so not an island when it comes to caring for the baby.
tl;dr Why can’t I just be the dad?
there was a time when i could leave the country and tell people i was from toronto and all i would get was a stereotypical “canadian” joke in response
but over the course of the last year whenever i’ve told anyone i’m from toronto the response has changed greatly
"oh, toronto! there was that monkey on the loose! your mayor smokes crack!"
an iconic city
"metallic thrumming" REALLY
But seriously, my mom coming around every day to watch G while I nap and shower has improved our relationship considerably.
So these days I get like, 3 hours sleep at night. Then an hour in the morning if I’m lucky and an hour in the afternoon if my mom comes around.
I don’t understand how I feel normal.
If I could have done this before g existed, I would have been a lot more productive.
