I thought that I would share my day with you. Edith has been very irritable in the last week with her teeth. Poor baby. So there has been some tough Mama days. I thought I'd share a break down of everything I did one Thursday. It was a rather busy day, as you'll see:

  1. Oh, sweetie, I feel you. I've written a couple of posts like this so people know what life's like with a colicky or teething baby. Jenson is cutting three teeth at the same time and he's asleep on my chest now as I check Bloglovin on my phone. It's fucking hard, isn't it!
