I just needed to snap out of it, but I couldn't, I just felt quite down and very overwhelmed. But it happens right?! And us Mummies keep on going, picking ourselves up everyday, trying to start fresh.
I definitely think the lack of sleep was responsible for most of how I was feeling. It's sweet that Logan's going through a clingy stage in a sense, it's nice to know he wants to be held by his Daddy and I and that it's on our chests that he feels safest. But it's ridiculously tough on you as a person when you can't leave the room to go to the toilet without your baby's world seemingly ending and obviously it's just the worst when you can't get a good nights sleep. It'll take a little time but we'll get Logan back in to his bedtime routine - we went through this with Ethan at a really similar age.
After a bit of a tough old week, Saturday saw me actually pick myself back up. I go a bit of a lay-in which felt amazing and the sun was shining too and we all know that that makes everything feel better. I took the boys on a nature walk, we looked for bugs and flowers and things like that and I also visited my local Pokestop (it's a Pokemon Go thing). I didn't get many Pokeballs, in fact I only got about 3-4 which didn't last me very long at all.. I'm really not sure if this game is intended for stay at home/work at home Mummies..
We had lunch in the garden when we got home and then the boys went down for a nap together (yay!). I usually run around like a mad-woman getting things done when the boys nap together, but this time I didn't. I made a huge bowl of pasta and sat on the sofa with a cola and watched Pretty Little Liars (I'm only on season 2!) and boy did that feel good! Sometimes you just need to work on yourself, before you start working on everything else again.
It was so nice to just relax and not feel tense, stressed and overwhelmed. It wasn't a very exciting day, but it is exactly what I needed to be able to pick myself back up and start to move forward again.
