"Spent my Valentine's night snuggled in to my Little, feeding her and helping her get over a tickly cough and runny nose.
Does it matter that I'm totally touched out for the day and would love to just have a smidge of child free company with my husband? YES, of course it matters!
This week I've struggled to go 30 seconds without the Little needing me, but that's ok, I understand her needs and would do anything for her 💕
However, that's also meant she's woken up and wanted to keep me company for half the night - just when she had started to sleep a little longer...
But tonight, after having a day of things not going to plan and feeling exhausted, out comes the aversion and feeling of being totally touched out, to the point of making my skin crawl.
My Big one has had to go without her post dinner cuddle because I just can't. Thankfully she fully understands and knows that things will hopefully improve after some quality sleep 🤞
The Little and I have a great relationship but it's still hard to hear that your touch might not be making someone very comfortable and I totally get it. .
Tomorrow is another day though. I know I can survive tonight, I've done it plenty times before, I just need to remind myself of that.
I can and I will.
