As a mom, your time cannot be anymore limited. I’m talking minutes. After W fell asleep at 10:30am, I rushed back downstairs to finish folding the laundry I started earlier. I got to also remove my old nail polish off my fingers. That’s 25 min into her nap and she sits up.
I go up and extend her sleep. Literally I lay her back down and let her nurse and slowly sneak out on e she’s fallen back asleep. Then I quickly steal a shower. And while I’m at it I run the stopwatch, curious to see how long I really take in the shower. As it turns out, it’s less than 8 minutes. Impressive.
(I’m also multitasking as of this moment. With a towel wrapped around my head, in the midst of moisturizing myself, I try to write part of this post before she wakes. The kids and M are out. I sent them to donate a bunch of stuff from our first decluttering attempts.)
I’ve got a few things I’m aiming to accomplish before she wakes.
- Get ready for the day – includes hair and makeup
- Trim nails
- Call bank
- Prepare lunch
After lunch we are going to an indoor playground with some friends. I think Z and could really use an outlet for their extra energy. Z just wants to kick and bounce balls around – even at 8:30 am or 6:30 pm.
So Bunches of Fun was a success. All the three kids got to burn energy and we headed to Yorkdale Mall to pick up a few things and nap W.
All in all, a productive and fun day for everybody.
