Today. Was. Insane.
1:22 am: Alex is so hungry he screams when I put him down on the change table. So I balanced the bottom of his bottle with my chin so he could eat while I changed his diaper.
5:28 am: another feed. I’m scrambling to get ready for boot camp, which begins in 27 minutes.
5:55 am: I make it to boot camp and push hard in the tempo run intervals. I’m on a high.
7-8 am: shower, chug coffee, eat eggs, prep bags for daycare.
8:11am: wake up the little man. Pack him up, pick up formula at the grocery store, drop him off at daycare.
9 am: return to grocery store, buy groceries, contemplate kraft dinner purchase for eighth week in a row. Buy a Febreeze plug in instead.
10:15 am: come home, stare at our house bomb.
10:30 : ignore house bomb, eat three cookies, start work.
2 pm: overcome fear of making homemade baby food. Puree beans, sweet potato and apples.
3:30 pm: meet my sister’s kids at their place after school. Try not to laugh when they say weiner.
4:30 pm: pack the weiners into the car to pick Alex up at daycare. Tell them to act good. They practice what they’ll say when they arrive at daycare: “wow, I like your shirt.” ” whoa, cool diaper”.
5pm: return to sister’s and eat dinner together. Feed Alex banana for first time. He almost falls asleep in high chair.
6 pm: come home and meet my parents. Give Alex a bath after he pukes up banana on his towel. Sternly tell dog not to eat banana puke.
630 pm: head to Lanark for work meeting.
9:15 pm: return home from meeting. Chat with my parents and repeatedly thank them for Alex-sitting, as Toby is away for work.
10 pm: chat with Toby on phone. Express my jealousy over his hotel room and the stellar sleep he is about to get.
10:30 pm: stare at my mom bum.
And…here we are. It was such a busy day, but I incorporated work, family and cookies into the schedule. I think this is a typical day for moms with bums. It was awesome and completely insane all at the same time.
I’d say he is worth every moment.
But please pass the wine.
