Mother on the verge of a nervous breakdown

In less than two weeks, I will be able to say "I survived my first year of motherhood". But between this moment* and then, please don't leave me alone with sharp implements or a gun.

* 1.30am, after having resettled a screaming baby and then found myself unable to get back to sleep - and hell, she's going to get me up again in a couple of hours any.

Sounds like you are going through a rough patch but these things pass. Only a week and a bit to go.

eb and jb: only a week and a half to go until her birthday, but something tells me that things don't get better - they just get different. :-)

rainypete: Yep, I've got to grit my teeth and thank the gods she's not a pouty teenager yet.

portuguesa nova: I hope I haven't put you off motherhood, and anyway you may be lucky enough to get a baby who sleeps, eats and doesn't have too many colds. :-)
