I have to say that it’s taken me some almost 2 weeks to get my act together and it’s still not perfect – my new routine minus Mum around to help that is. The main problem I face is entertaining the little man when he is awake, the girls are no problem coz all they need is the tv on and its got their attention. And if they get bored, they just play with their toys.
But if the little man is awake, I can kiss everything good bye – lunch will be late, snacks are a no-go and definitely no FB time for be before midday! LOL But I had an ‘ah-ha’ moment and I guess I have figured out how to keep the little man asleep longer during the morning so I can at least cook and prepare lunch, and feed the girls. It’s a simple thing and yet, it’s taken me this long! *slaps forehead*
See, he doesn’t sleep in the bassinet during the day. He’s in the rocker in the kitchen or in the living room, just wherever I am so that I can easily get to him without going through an obstacle course (which is my living room while the girls are awake). Also, it’s just easier to rock him back to sleep or just calm him down. Since I knew about swaddling him up during the day, I can get at least 2hr of naptime from him. It’s long enough for me to cook lunch, and if he loves me more than morning, I might get more from him! lol
