Musings on Motherhood Part 5

Musings on Motherhood: Part 5

I haven’t ever limited Eli’s “screen time” in fact, he loves introductory music so much that wherever he is in the house, he will come to stand in front of the tv just to watch it.

If I’m really tired and Eli wakes up before I’m ready, I nap on the floor of his room while he crawls around me.  This little trick will typically net me an extra 20-30 minutes of sleep 🙂

While I am so excited to have more children and be pregnant again someday, going back to the newborn days of being a someone’s sole source of food and sleeplessness and general bleariness and haze of new babydom scares me.

Motherhood is far lonelier than I knew, I am constantly around someone and yet craving social interaction.

Eli never wears a bib, I just have him naked 80% of the time.

The thing that is currently making me most nervous about parenthood right now is beginning to discipline Eli.  First of all, he is so cute, how am I to punish him? Second of all, how? when? I’m just overwhelmed with the idea of it.

I don’t see the big deal about 1st birthdays.  I don’t feel as though he is going to care at all, so we are going to the coast with our family instead of doing a party.  We will have a celebration, and I’m excited, but the “pinterest party” it will not be.

One of the best things about this SAHM life? No bras and yoga pants.
