So the Little Man has just started on rice cereal. It's only been about 3 days, but he's picked up rather quickly and loves it. Instead of opening his mouth for it, he just dives his face straight into the spoon. Such a sight to see! With that being said, my sweet baby boy is now sleeping through the night, and my ongoing overnight Grey's Anatomy marathon has come to a halt. Not that I'm necessarily complaining, because this mama is enjoying sleep again but I do miss the routine I had going.
So my big question is: How do you balance your hobbies and your baby?
Before Langston was born, I was an avid crocheter. Although I have a slight problem with starting a new project before I even finish the other one, I still love it. It's so calming, and rhythmic. I've spent countless hours going at it, double crochet after double crochet. Enter baby Langston, and the hooky time has stopped! I'm a huge fan of Lucy over at Attic24. She's a mother of 3, and manages to create these absolutely divine blankets, and other sweet little projects. I have no idea how she does it, but it's a skill that I'm looking to acquire.
I work full time, so in the evenings it's feeding, bathing, playing, and getting Little Man to sleep. Once that's done, it's bottle washing time along with dinner, ironing my clothes for the following day and showering. Not much time to squeeze in any hooky at all. On the weekends, I'm more interested in soaking up every minute I can with Lang, and then it's back to Monday for the same routine all over again. So once again, How do I balance my hobbies and my baby boy? Well, I guess I'm just going to have to make the time. Time with Langston is my priority, but while he's napping I need to take advantage and have a little Me time also.
