So, my first solo week as a mom of two is (almost) over and the verdict is....
not too bad. :)
I think I can swing this.
Good thing, right?
Yes, we're definitely tired. (although still not nearly as exhausted as I was when pregnant.)
And yeah, I have not slept in the same bed as Mike for over two weeks now. (my ingenious "shift" schedule with Alice is to thank for that.)
A small price to pay for having wonderful Alice here. She's such a good baby. Very content, happy to sit in her chair and watch her big sister. Loves to eat....and a lot.
We're all settling into a routine, too.
E starts school in a few weeks and I think that will help her. She seems to be missing other kids....no gym=no Kids Klub=a ton of extra energy for Miss E=guilt ridden Mommy for not being able to 100% entertain her 3 year old.
I've already started the countdown until Alice can go with me to the gym....I miss it! Mike and I are both rushing around like madmen at the end of the day to try to fit both of our workouts in along with dinner, baths, feedings, and bedtimes.
I think a treadmill is a definite investment that Mike and I are going to make though....getting a run in while Alice is napping is going to rock.
Happy Fridays everyone.
