I used to wonder why stay-at-home moms would hire nannies. After yesterday, I understand. It's so they can take showers and make the bed and do the laundry. It's so they can get a coffee when their heads are pounding and check their email and work out.
I want to at least make the bed, take a shower, write, and do my
pilates video. Four things that are fairly quick, you'd think I'd find
time for all of those. However, yesterday I didn't do a single one (yes,
today I'm smelling pretty funky). Because something has gotten into
Brandon where he cries if I'm not holding him. If I try to put him down
in the napper, where he used to sleep during the day, he fusses until I
pick him back up. It's insane. I literally spent a whole day holding a
baby yesterday. But I can't do this forever. So I texted Steve that we
need a swing or vibrating chair or something in lieu of me that Brandon
can fall asleep in.
