It seems like lately all I can get done is feeding the baby and making sure we get our meals and snacks taken care of at home. Not that I am complaining, eating is important… but it seems like I should be able to get more done than just that. Well, OK, we did get some laundry done, the bills paid, bath time for baby, dishes and picking the house up, and some thank-you cards written. I even managed to get my menu for the week typed out.
I’m learning that perfectionism is a thing of the past. Not that I actually was perfect before the baby got here. But I always thought that if I just checked one more thing off on my mile-long list I would be closer to it.
I’m trying to focus on my new super-powers and let go of the ideals I had of how baby was going to fit-right-in to our schedule and allow me to continue getting things done ‘as usual’.
Yes, I actually thought that. You can tape that “kick me” sign on my back now.
Oh, well. At least we are fed. Time to nurse the baby and get in bed so we can eat again tomorrow. I’ll leave you with the link to my menu and get back to making milk:
