I feel like I had a crazy busy day today, like I rushed from thing to thing, but that is a completely ridiculous feeling to have, especially about today. I’m not knocking the stay at home mom life in any way. But really – today’s the day that felt crazy? See for yourself.
7am-ish to about 9: Jack woke up. John changed him, I fed him, we played a bit, and John took Jack so I could shower and eat breakfast.
9:10ish: I fed Jack off and on until he fell asleep.
9:45 to 11:15am: Jack napped in my lap. I napped a bit, too.
11:15 to noon: I played with Jack, changed him, got some cute videos while I gathered up a blanket and some toys.
Noon to 1pm-ish: Jack and I sat outside on a blanket in the shade. I fed him, he played, two of the neighbors came over to chat.
1pm-ish to 2pm-ish: I made lunch for me and John (scrambled eggs and toast), tried to feed Jack a tiny bite of scrambled eggs (he gagged), ate them myself, and fed him some baby food he actually likes.
2:30pm-ish to 4:30: We went for a long walk with Helen and Nora. Jack napped from about 3 to 3:45.
4:30 to 4:50: Fastest grocery trip ever.
5pm-ish to 6:30pm: I fed and changed Jack, we made and ate dinner, fed Jack some baby food, and played a little.
6:30pm to 7pm: Bathtime!
7pm to 7:35pm: Bedtime!
Highlights: I napped, played, went for a walk, and ate. No appointments, no major errands, no timelines or deadlines, no meetings, and yet it didn’t feel as relaxing as it looks on paper. I need a do-over. That’s a relaxing day, damn it.
