You will be wondering … why don’t you get a help? If you are a mom you would know that it is gradually becoming a bottleneck situation to find kind-hearted and genuine help these days. It is either they are mean to your kids, or they steal or they don’t want to do anything at all. But that is a story for another day.
In as much as I want to get things ready for the next day or take care of things that concern me especially my blog or maybe sewing, I also try my best to make out time for my husband whom I barely see during the day because of work.
So without further ado …
Baby has his bath around 7pm or 8pm and after that, he has his dinner or prior to that. That would most likely take an hour or less. By the time we are done with that my husband should be back home.
Then we go to welcome him home and serve him dinner. After his dinner, the baby goes to bed and then it is couple’s time! We either talk about our day or other pressing issues, or we rent a movie and watch together.
After movies and some chilling we all go to bed …
Once he doses off, I get up for me time!
Once the cat sleeps the mouse comes out to play… literary
I take to my jotter and plan my chores for the next day. Chores like cob webbing, mopping, laundry etc.
I pre-prep food items for breakfast or lunch the next day.
Next is to write and schedule posts (which I try to do now during school hours)
Finally, mommy hits the bed to revamp for the next day.
I hope this gives you a simple idea of how to organize yourself to get things done. I know you would be thinking how I make up for lost hours of sleep? Well, I try to sleep when my baby is sleeping during the day. That really helps. My mom keeps repeating it “sleep when your baby is sleeping”.
Though I don’t stick to it a 100% but I try to sneak in at least a nap just so I don’t break down.
On Saturdays, I do my grocery shopping or on Sundays after Mass as the case may be. Hubby also helps out a lot I must mention that I cannot pretend to be a superwoman. He is my backbone any day any time.
I hope you learnt one or two things that might help you as a new mom if you don’t have help around you. You can always send in your questions or leave a comment in the comment section below.
