Frazzeled. That's what I feel like after the last two weeks. School has started again, and even though Little Love is back in school, and I thought I would have so much time now, I don't. Main reason is because I have Sweet Pea to take care of during the days. And I did a very bad thing :(
When she was tiny, just a few short months ago I held her when she slept. I know. I KNOW. You don't need to say it. Needless to say, I've started something bad. She's now a little over 6 mos old and that is the only way she will nap. I need to break the habit because all it seems that I get done during the day is take one to school, feed and nap Sweet Pea, have a bit of play time, feed and nap Sweet Pea, pick up Little Love from school. Help with homework, feed and nap Sweet Pea, then make dinner. Finally at about 7 pm I can sit down and start on my design work which usually consumes about 4-6 hours of my night. So you see, I NEED to recapture that nap time to get other things done so that I don't feel so frazzled. NEED.
Tell me, for those of you who have, or had little ones. How did you break a bad habit, and don't tell me to let her cry it out. I absolutely can't do baby tears, add to the fact that she works herself up not down when I let her try to self sooth. I'm a complete nanny disaster! I need help :(
Please let me know if you have any helpful solutions and for that I will reward you with this week's Muse :) I expect some really good tips afterwards!!
p.s. I just read a holiday romance where the hero is a contractor and wears a tool belt. Anyone else find that as incredibly sexy as I do?
This week at Seductive Musings:
