Change of plans

St. Louis … not so much.

Instead of getting up this morning at 4:30 am to catch a flight, I was up at 3:30 giving Baby her second bottle of the night. This is not typical. She usually only needs one feeding in the middle of the night.

It was the second bad night after her fever broke on Friday, so Husband and I decided that I needed to change my plans.

He would have been fully capable of taking care of Baby, even a sick baby, all on his own. But, let’s face it, that’s just exhausting. It’s exhausting for two people to do, much less going it alone.

So, I rearranged some appointments and am working closer to home this week.

Baby? Another double ear infection, a cold, and probably teething. Here we go again.

I feel so terrible for her. She can’t sleep and is pretty fussy, which is unusual for my child. Normally, she is about as happy as any baby could possibly be, and I just hate seeing her so uncomfortable.

So, I am not out of town. I think my momentum is a bit deflated as far as the business trips go. However, I’ll just try it all again next Monday.

Such is life, I suppose, when you go from being a single, traveling sales rep to being a working mom. You have to roll with the punches.
