Finding a Rhythm…
I was reading a post on one of the mothering blogs that I read called The Girl is a Mom. I’m so glad for her that she has found a rhythm. Jealous, but her baby is over a year old so that should make me not so jealous right?
Yeah I’m trying to find my rhythm. We thought we would have time to establish a new routine when my Dr Me returned to work before the baby was born. Didn’t happen. Weekly doctor’s appointments in Syracuse, extra fluid and lack of energy that I did not plan on having happen, and just plain running out of time due to her early arrival.
Miss F is now 6 weeks and the four of us (two older ones 4 1/2 and 3) are trying to find a rhythm that will work for us. I have a feeling it is going to be a bit yet, but we will get there. As I sit here typing I’m rocking back and forth with the baby in the moby wrap and I’m hearing her two older sisters wake up upstairs.
Thank God that today we have a friend coming over for a playdate with them. They need to get out of the house and it is too cold to take the Miss F out (it was 20 last night). It is a whole whopping 49 now so yeah if I was up to going out then it’s not s bad. But we setup the playdate yesterday and I have to go to the post office. Why do we not have drive through post offices? Wouldn’t that be so nice for all of us much less mom’s like me who don’t want to bundle 3 kids up to take them inside the post office?
And the wanting to go outside bit is going to be a problem I know all winter. What I wouldn’t give for a fenced in yard right now. 🙂 And a Leaf Fairy to take care of all of the leaves….
