Ben went back to work today. It’s hard handling the two kids by myself, but refreshing in a way. A return to normalcy.
Poor Jack is learning he has to share me now. Trouble came when I was feeding Sam and Jack whacked his hip into a table, bursting in tears. Hard to comfort when my lap was full. Then he went upstairs to go #2, and had to wait while I finished feeding Sam. Then Sam had to sit in a dirty diaper while I took care of Jack. Taking turns is for more than just toys.
Sam’s cord came off this morning! I’m glad, because sponge baths are terrible. This stinky boy needs a gentle soak. Maybe tomorrow. My to do list is full for today:
-Take a shower
-Slow cooker dinner
-Work from home stuff
I’m proud to say things are right on schedule, with only the last two items undone. The shower was probably the hardest to accomplish, but I got it done. Even dried my hair afterward! But I might crash and take a nap during Jack’s quiet time. Sam had trouble getting back to sleep last night, so I only got an hour at a time, maybe 4 hour total.
Here’s pictures from story time today.
