And about a month into the colic — a point when I was hearing imaginary crying babies fairly regularly — I said to her, “I’m not sure how we’re going to get through this. We should think about getting some pot.” Thankfully, I reconsidered that after imagining dropping my crying baby after a few too many bong hits.Now, I never considered anything harder (too tired to think that creatively) than a economy sized bottle of wine but found myself self passed out after opening the bottle and simply pouring the glass.
But a hangover with colic — that’s like giving yourself colic.
Even though Brady's fussiness was attributed to reflux we were told told at one point that Brady had 'some colic.' He's right, medical professionals (and we love ours) do not know much about it and people shrug off a fussy baby as just that--just a fussy baby.
A fussy baby...no matter the cause is stressful and he's right, babies don't remember it but mom and dad? Oh hell yes, they do. Well, after they come out of the haze of sleepless nights and PTFBD (Post-Traumatic Fussy Baby Disorder.)
Thinking to the future, of course we will worry that we imaginary baby 2.0 will be born screaming and cursing at us till he/she is 2 but we know we'll be just fine. Been there. Done that.
As long as imaginary baby 2.0 doesn't spit fire or crab walk on the ceiling, we can handle it. We're old pros, lol.
