I’ve been a stay-at-home mom for 5 and a half months now. 5 and a 1/2 months. Pretty crazy when I really think about it.
I noticed today that I have this little problem when I schedule out my day. I should know better by now but I just proved my point again. (note: this point was proven to myself, no gloating to anyone will be involved.)
As I think about what I need to do during the day some things are easier to do during Isabelle’s nap times than when she’s awake. So I ponder those while she’s up and try to think about which nap I’ll work on those things. Then you know what happens? She goes down for her nap and I decide to sit down for a minute before I take a shower (or whatever), next thing I know her nap is over and I’m still on the couch reading blogs or some other website. Drinking my coffee. Not running around the house like crazy cleaning up because our bible study is coming over tonight. Not getting out the chicken we are going to grill tonight. Not taking a shower and getting dressed. Not putting together a basket for a silent auction. Not… I’d better go now, my list is getting to me and I’m just sitting here on the internet!
