The hubs is currently on a business trip so yesterday mommy and me had some precious ‘alone time’. I had grande plans to put Zoey to bed early (7pm) so I can have the rest of the night all by myself. My plan backfired as I eventually fell asleep with her!
I simply don’t have the energy that I used to. I guess taking care of a toddler (solo) while being too pregnant to see my toes is already too much to handle. What was I thinking? Staying up late and enjoying the night? Ain’t happening! And by ‘late’, I mean bedtime by 10pm.
From the time I pick Zoey up ’til her bedtime, it’s really a marathon. The routine: cook dinner, feed the child, bathe her, drawing time, read her favorite bedtime books, and lay with her UNTIL she falls asleep. Talk about exhaustion!
It’s so much better having the husband’s help. We’ll split the duties and sometimes he would do it all so I can rest. I miss him!
