This is a rant (prepare yourselves)

Nannying has been killing me lately. I feel like I'm on the verge of a mental break down. All I literally want to do is crawl into my bed and cry. The 5 month old baby I watch has been stressful and exhausting to take care of. I'm not an idiot, I know that babies are fussy and cry a lot. But this little one cries and fusses for 75% of the day. And that's on a good day. He won't let me put him down, ever. And I mean EVER. He fights sleep like its the devil, and when he finally falls asleep, the second I lay him in his swing, he wakes right up...and screams. Thankfully the older boy I watch (about 1 1/2) is pretty easy to watch. But he needs my attention too and that's hard to give when the baby won't stop crying. I am exhausted, physically, mentally, and emotionally. Excuse me while I go cry in a corner.

  1. Oh honey, I totally understand. One time when I was caring for a 3 month old that cried non stop I finally told grandpa George, "Please help me, I can't take it anymore" He did and I was able to rest and regroup. Now, the baby would sleep in its car seat just fine, so I decided to just let her sleep in there so we all could get some rest. I wish I was there to give you a break. Pretend I'm there and cry on my shoulder. I love you. grandma G.
