{ just sayin } thanks.

Monday, February 6, 2012

I have some of the best blog readers out there and I don't say it nearly enough {or ever actually, I just think it in my head all. the. time.} 

I've started affectionately referring to you all as my 'wise followers' - get it? - not only do you make Saige Wisdom part of your daily weekly whenever I get around to it blog stop but you have proven time and time again that you are truly wise and deserving of this title.

Let it be known that 2012 didn't start off the way I planned. The misery that was January - which spilled into early February - had me begging for mercy while singing along to Duffy. 

Gabe's tummy issues followed by blood curdling screams - which you can read about here - really set the tone for my new year; if it wasn't for your kind words full of advice, encouragement & inspiration, I may not have had the strength to push on.

I'd like to dedicate tonight's post to thanking YOU for all the comments, emails, tips, recipes, recommendations, comic relief... I'd especially like to thank the anonymous person out there that left me this...

 changed our life around here it did.

Here's an expanded list of all the bullsh*t I've had to deal with in the past month and a half:

** throwing a last minute birthday party for my baby girl who's now 3 and far too mature {and tall} for my liking.

** sending said three year old to her first day of pre-school `sniff, sniff`

** learning that good friends of ours lost their baby.

** out-sobbing my son in the doctor's office only to get a blank stare and pediatrician referral... thanks Doc for being heartless  {and tissue-less} and not doing your job by NOT asking me about post-partum depression. I now recognize that my desperation looked a lot like depression and while many of you wise followers picked up on it and sent supportive emails, mister I-was-in-university-for-over-a-decade to enhance & save lives sent me on my not-so-merry way without even a brochure. What if I was experiencing the baby blues? Let's add 'find a new doctor' to my ever growing to-do list.

** adopting a gluten-free, dairy-free, egg-free diet for the sake of Gabriel's digestive system.

** seeing minimal results despite above sacrifice.

** feeling powerless as Gabe writhed in pain. 

** quitting breastfeeding all together and experiencing the full gamut of emotions that came with that decision - guilt, grief, doubt, frustration, anger, self-pity.

** interviewing for a position I thought I wanted post-mat leave and having it given to the 'other candidate'. The sting of rejection is both painful and humiliating.

** caring for a house full of sickies.

** becoming the household sicky.

** falling behind on my blogging, relationships, resolutions, housework, basic hygiene, etc.

sounds pretty fun right?

I'm happy to report that things are looking up. Thanks again wise followers for your continued support and readership... I LOVE YA!

I am so sorry that it has been so rough! I hope February is looking up. I promise there's light at the end of the tunnel. People always told me, "this is only a season". It is. And something good will come of it! Love on those babies. =)

Hi there, I merely wished to tell you, I disagree. Your article fails to make sense at all.
