now that ben's pretty much on a two nap a day schedule, i cherish this time. i often feel like i'm supposed to be cleaning/doing laundry/making dinner. but that rarely gets done. i just want to sit. watch tv. read a book. have a snack. read my newsfeed. drink a diet coke. because these things are not as easy with a baby. especially not with a crazy mover baby which is what ben has become. so that means things aren't that tidy, laundry sits unfolded for long periods of time, and i haven't improved on making dinners.
but you know what else i think it means? i'm better prepared to play, deal with crankiness, and have fun with ben. i don't feel worn out throughout the day because i take my breaks as breaks. this just occurred to me as i am writing this. so that's pretty good.
now if i could just begin to like cooking in my spare time...i could be eating something other than spaghetti for dinner.
