..that it is nearly impossible to get anything done with an infant. Yeah, yeah you all told me. I hoped--just like every other mom in the whole entire world--that I would be the one to make history and have a clean house, dinner on the table every night, and a happy baby in tow. I laugh at you!
Some things work for awhile; wearing my baby, working on things while she sleeps, etc. But it never lasts for long.
The newest idea is school.
You heard right. School.
Today was her first lesson--thanks to Baby Einstein. It actually kept her attention for about 12 minutes, and in those 12 minutes I got a good chunk of the living room looking decent- well, at least the entryway. It has given me hope, folks!
Even if she only lasts 12 minutes I will take it--and run with it.
Though there are times I feel frustration because my house is a mess, the laundry is behind, my dishes aren't clean, it's ok. My daughter loves me and wants to be with me. What a wonderful feeling! One day too soon she'll be old enough (and independent enough!) to play with toys and not even care about what I'm doing.. just thinking about it chokes me up!
