7:00 - Carina wakes up and does the cutest little happy dance when I pick her up out of the crib. I bring her into our bed and feed her, taking my time instead of rushing this morning.
7:30 - Walk down the hallway to our apartment building's free breakfast. Sit and enjoy some coffee and donuts with M before he catches the bus to work.
8:00 - Play time! Blocks, My Pal Violet, abacus, pots and pans, stacky toy, you name it...we played with it.
8:30 - Nap time.
9:00 - No really, Carina, it's nap time. Feed her and try to put her down again.
9:30 - For serious, little one, go to sleep. Caffeine from the coffee I drank starts giving me a stomach ache.
10:00 - Finally asleep.
10:30 - Carina wakes up ready for PLAY TIME! Jump jump jump in the Jumperoo until a foul smell permeates through the room. Carina screams as I change her diaper :(
11:00 - Practice crawling, standing, and walking. Read some stories. Have
12:00 - Nurse then nap time.
12:30 - Please nap?
1:00 - Get the sleepless baby out of her crib and go for a walk.
2:00 - Nap success.
2:15 - Awake. ::facepalm:: Nurse and then play time in her command center.
3:00 - Read some more stories and play around on the floor while Momma attempts to do some dishes.
4:00 - Nap time. OMG you actually fell asleep YAY! Plan dinner
4:45 - Carina wakes up. More fun time in the Jumperoo. Nurse and then Momma starts dinner.
5:15 - Put Carina in the Bumbo right next to the kitchen so I can talk to her while I cook. I know she is interested in hearing about the wonders of bacon.
5:45 - Dinner ready; M should be home at 6.
6:15 - No husband. No answer on his phone either. Feed Carina some solids. She spits them out - all over her, and all over me.
6:30 - Start putting Carina to bed, still no husband.
6:45 - M calls; his boss held him hostage. Will be home at 7:30. Carina falls asleep, and not wanting to wait another 45 minutes, Momma eats cold dinner by herself.
7:30 - M finally gets home and I am ready to pass out.
|Naps? What are those?|
In all, I was not anticipating that my first day would be this hard, but I wouldn't have it any other way :)
What are your days like (both stay at home Moms and working Moms)?
