Fairs fair

So, it seems only natural and right that after yesterdays upbeatness I would have a completely difficult day today...but really, to be fair it didn't get "difficult" until around 5pm. At five pm the fact that Ransom had literally cried every minute that he was not sleeping or eating all day had finally worn on my nerves to the point of fed-up-ness.
In the end my friend Marie came over and helped me rule out my milk supply being low as a source of Ransom's woes...but we're back to square one, and I'm just going to pray that he was just "having a bad day" and that that bad day does not translate over into nights.

On the upside I have wonderful friends. One friend called to see if I needed anything from the store and then brought me batteries for my swing ( I take it back, Ransom was quiet for about 5 minutes in the swing...until the novelty wore off. haha) , another friend came over to my house to bake cupcakes for another friend of ours...she seriously took the time and trouble to bring over all the ingredients so that she could make them at my house instead of hers so that I'd get some adult company ( while my child screamed). Seriously sweet. And then, Marie also came to my aid this evening with help trying to figure out just WHAT is the matter with my crying child. All in all I know I am blessed.

Oh. And Brett had his first big patrol ( that's basically graded) today and I didn't really know about it until after the fact, then I felt guilty for not spending more of my day praying for him....

Ok. Its officially today needs to just be over.

I'm sorry you had such a rough day. I remember crying while I tried to rock Marley to sleep for hours. It really can make you crazy! But it really does help to have people who want to help you and care about you!

Praying for all three of you! Louise

When Nana gets there, you can go next door and help bake the cupcakes and Nana will walk and sing to Ransom. He is probably missing his Daddy, just like you! Sure is nice seeing my "daughters" consoling one another.
