Flying solo . . . .
. . . . for the past three weeks I’ve been blissfully happy in my babymoon, lavishing all my time and attention on Beanie Boy and generally bonding with him. Hubby had week off with me, then my Mum had a week off to help and for the past week Hubby has been off again but as of tomorrow it will just be little old me and my babies!!!
I’m – not so secretly – bricking it! In my heart I know that I will be fine, I’ve done the whole baby thing before but not with a toddler in tow. Little Bean is being fantastic and a great help with Beanie Boy but perhaps a little “too” helpful!! I’m actually more worried about the fact that as of tomorrow there will be no more “sleep ins” – I will have to be up and about to tend to Little Bean. I can already envisage me putting the kettle in the fridge where the milk should be and most likely putting my trousers on inside out due to lack of sleep!! Eeek, it could be an interesting day???
So far I have to say that I’m really lucky with Beanie Boy because he is only generally waking once in the night but on the downside he keeps not going to sleep until nearly 1am!!! We reach 10pm and he springs to life – I’ve decided that he is probably going to become a DJ or something like that as he appears to be somewhat of a night owl.
For the last couple of days he has also become a very sicky baby, not just a little bit of spit up, I’m talking full on projectile vomiting which isn’t fun. We are generally going through two outfits per feed thanks to being sick or exploding nappies so I know I will be busy catching up on laundry this week.
Wish me luck, it might take me a while to get back into the swing of blogging but I’m hoping to be able to share my journey with you as I head into life as a stay at home Mummy to two very little people!!
