I used to wonder why stay-at-home moms would hire nannies. After yesterday, I understand. It’s so they can take showers and make the bed and do the laundry. It’s so they can get a coffee when their heads are pounding and check their email and work out.
Every day I want to at least make the bed, take a shower, write, and do my pilates video. Four things that are fairly quick, you’d think I’d find time for all of those. However, yesterday I didn’t do a single one (yes, today I’m smelling pretty funky). Because something has gotten into Brandon where he cries if I’m not holding him. If I try to put him down in the napper, where he used to sleep during the day, he fusses until I pick him back up. It’s insane. I literally spent a whole day holding a baby yesterday. But I can’t do this forever. So I texted Steve that we need a swing or vibrating chair or something in lieu of me that Brandon can fall asleep in.
Over his lunch break, Steve ran out and got Brandon this swing chair. This swing chair allowed me to make breakfast and unload the dishwasher this morning. I’m hoping this afternoon I can make the bed and take a shower and do my pilates video. The chair did eventually get Brandon into his napper.He hasn’t slept in there for days. I’ll take what I can get. But I want the old Brandon back!
