Sunday Lately is a weekly linkup hosted by the Blogger Tribe, which is led by the powerhouse duo Katy (Wild and Wanderful) & Angelica (Gardening in High Heels). We e-hangout every Sunday, sharing a small glimpse into the past week of life in our own worlds. We’d love if you could join us!
This week’s themes: Progressing, Neglecting, Purging, Wondering, Craving
Progressing: Through maternity leave way too fast. It seems so hard to believe that Wednesday will be 6 weeks already since I gave birth to our baby boy. It has been so great being able to be home and bond with baby David (aka Little Man) while I recover from pregnancy, labor and delivery. I am not the least bit ready to return to work, being a stay-at-home mom suits me but it helps knowing Little Man will be in loving capable hands while I am working.
Neglecting: Housework. Due to the fact that Little Man is a cuddler and likes to be held all the time my housework has been sadly neglected lately. Dishes and Laundry both only get washed when I have more than 10 minutes to myself and my carpets get vacuumed only when they need it. It’s discouraging to get so little done but I keep reminding myself that Little Man will only be little once and I’m going to enjoy this time while I still have it.
Purging: My house of clutter. Laundry, Dishes, and routine cleaning(or at least it used to be routine) have been neglected but I’ve been trying to purge my house of clutter as I pass it going from one room to another. I figure if I at least get rid of the random receipts, wrappers and plastic grocery bags lying around our house will look a bit better despite the dishes stacked on the counter.
Wondering: If I will ever find some sort of routine. The past few weeks have been some of the best and most tiring of my life but I can’t help but miss having daily and weekly routines. I’ve just been taking life as it goes, which has been slightly refreshing but mostly just frustrating. I can’t help but wonder if going back to work is going to give me any type of routine or if it will just make life more crazy. Time will tell I suppose!
Craving: Sleep! I am On average Little Man lets me sleep 3-4 hours straight a night. Yay me! During the day though he feels that I should always be holding him while he sleeps so nap time rarely happens for this mommy.
P.S. In case you missed it last week, be sure to check out Little Man and I’s account of his first month with us here: One Month Old!
