rockin’ mama challenge: day 12

Day 12




Today was a rough day for me.

We’ve had a disruptive schedule over the weeks since Christmas

Due to snow days, 2-hour delays.

Today was my breaking point.


I was intentional about doing the rocking

because I felt like I really “needed” it.

I am angry.

From behaviors throughout the day.

It wears me out.

She just lays on me.

I realize that during the rockings I have not really been holding her

(well maybe a couple of times)

She just kind of lays there.

Today I intentionally placed my hand on her back.

I’m happy with the rocking thus far. I’m happy to make the effort. I’m pleased that we are having this time, even when I haven’t felt like rocking her. I’m wishing this wasn’t “forced time” and it would happen naturally sometimes, maybe we’ll get there one day.
