Getting the hang of motherhood

My house is a wreck. Or maybe it just feels that way to me because the time on the weekends that I usually devote to cleaning, are being eaten up by my two week old (tomorrow! not sure how he grew up so fast!). The dishes I wanted to do today? They had to wait yet again as he wanted to be held and fed all day long. All day! Except for the hour I took to go buy some lounge pants and T-shirts at Old Navy, he has preoccupied my time. I tried reading, but it's hard to turn pages with a baby in your arms. I watched countless episodes of Income Property. I'm trying to tell myself that I should enjoy not having to have everything done and just enjoy holding my bundle. He's sure to grow up fast. Gotta embrace it while I can.


  1. Yes, EMBRACE it!!! You will get the hang of reading and nursing at the same time. I also utilized our cable a lot when Cooper was a newborn.

  2. Oh you will definitely get the hang of reading and cuddling/nursing at the same time. Moms are born to multitask:-) I read many books with the girls like this...especially the clingons Maddie and Reagan.
