I didn't used to be such a complainer. I tried really hard to live by the verse in the Bible, "Do not grumble or complain about ANYTHING..." But I feel like I am so opposite of that now! I hate that I am like that. It's as if as if as time goes on, there's more and more to complain about. What kind of outlook is THAT?! That's TERRIBLE! Today, not only are my kid's ears infected, I'm pretty sure that he's teething too. (He's got a constant stream of saliva running out of his mouth.) The result of those two things??? Crying, whining, and sleeplessness (for BOTH of us!). I'm about to lose it today! I need a BREAK!!! But I can't have one, because Beau is on his way back from his meeting in Oklahoma City, and I wouldn't be able to leave him with anyone else if I tried, because of the way he's feeling. All of that being said, I KNOW the truth - that I am BEYOND BLESSED!!! I LOVE my little boy! I love my life! I'm thankful deep down inside, but at the moment, I just want to take a decent nap!!!

I'm right there with you.

Oh my goodness, I wish that I could come and rescue you today. You have been my saving grace so many times, I am sorry to fail you today. I hope that Beau will be able to give you a break ASAP, you deserve it!!! I love you and I will be praying for your sanity.

I'm so sorry that having a whiny, ear-infected, teething and sleepless baby boy is so darn hard! It just is, isn't it? Praise God that your love runs deep for this little one and that you know in your knower that 'this too shall pass'. I'm praying punkin seed. FYI... you are NOT whiny; you're just tired beyond thinking straight; that's all.
