I had NO clue I would be thanking mt lucky stars for my inlaws. Mostly my suegra (MIL) and "cunis" (cuñada or SIL) .
Its amazing. I knew I did everything when it came to the girls, and it (usually) didnt bother me. What I didnt realize is its REALLY nice to have someone else hold your kid for 10 minutes. Or to have them feed them so you can eat a meal in peace. Or, like tonight, when your 9 month old ball of fire decides sleep is for the dead.... After listening to her cry off and on for 3 hours because she doesnt want to sleep.... You can give up, get up out of bed and hand her off to someone else. So instead of crying (which I was seriously on the verge of) you can make yourself some hot tea with canela while someone else deals with your hyper Chuckie child who wont sleep.
Maybe someone snuck her a Payaso when I wasn't looking? That goes great with a breastmilk and only "natural" foods diet, right? Chocolate covered marshmallow on a stick.
I wonder if her cousin (also an "A" baby, practically the same age) is ALSO wide awake. Hey cousin A , are you wide awake too? Its 12:42am here in MX, what it is 1:42 am there ? Lets have an international baBAY parTAY!
