3 am breastfeeding thoughts

A stream of consciousness during a night feed. Get ready for it. I think I am nuts.

And go -

I need to blog.
And take dress photos.
Should I get a tripod?
How do all those bloggers get such good photos of those dresses?
I want more dresses.
I need to take more photos of Sophie in all her dresses.
I wonder if she fits that pink one yet?
I think the blue one will fit her now.
I wonder if she will dislike dresses when she is older because of this forced dress wearing?
Did I wear dresses?
I wonder how old a baby is when you realise they are a genius?
Oh we need to start teaching her sign language.
I wonder how hard it is....
Just a couple of signs would be good. Like hungry. Or done. Or....
Maybe if we start now she will be signing whole sentences by 2.
Do all mothers think they have the best looking babies?
Have they seen Sophie though?
Yep, I think she is looking more like me now.
But still heaps like Rob.
Man, he was a cute baby.
Just one.
Send that to Grandma.
What time is it in New Zealand?
Shit I look tired.
Bugger it.
I wonder if she is done yet?
I need to do the US taxes.
What was the due date?
Shit. Shit. Shit.
Oh the car needs a service to.
"Sophie, remind me the car needs a service"
Yeah nice way to remember Sarah.
Blame the kid for not reminding you.
Bugger me its cold.
I wonder if shes done yet.
Man shes sweet.
Why is time flying so fast?
Will time only accelerate from now?
How does one slow down time?
Should I try a course in Mindfulness?
Be present. Be present. Be present.
"Sophie your mother is nuts love"
Ahhhhhhhh I'm soooo tired.
I wonder if she is done.
Be present Sarah.
Man shes cute.
Oh, its Wednesday.. Bacon and Eggs in a few hours.
Okay babe, all done.
"Shhhh, Shhhh, Shhhh sleep time"
Don't wake her.
Gah! Stupid creaky floorboard.
Still sleeping.
Just, one, little, step.
Begin descent....
And. She. Is. Out.

 I call this move the knee-leg-sleep check (yep, it might need a better name). 
The theory is if I lay her down on my legs and she stays asleep, then its safe to put her down in the basket. 
This is of course, an attempt to avoid multiple trips back and forward when she wakes back up again.


  1. I feel like I have been there and done that! This post made me chuckle!

    1. Haha isn't it weird where the mind wanders in the wee hours1

  2. This made me laugh so much! I remember those early morning feedings and all of the thoughts that came with them. "Do all mothers think they have the best looking babies? Have they seen Sophie though?" -- that made me laugh the most. I'm pretty sure all mothers think their own babies are the cutest, mostly. Well, actually, I have a friend who said one of her kids was just not the cutest, and my brother admitted his kids weren't cute babies. But they grew up to be cute! So there's that. Sophie IS a pretty baby, though!

    1. Haha I love seeing Mamas gazing at their babies knowing they are all thinking the same thing! Thank you - I think so but I am totally biased lol.


Let's chat! I love getting comments and sending replies!
