No, but seriously. It’s Tuesday night, I was going to not have any wine until the weekend… Then the hubby left for curling, Liv pooped up her back and I decided to have some bubbles.
Today wasn’t a bad day, actually, it was a good one! Livvy slept well, I got my nails done while my darling husband parented and Liv is pretty chipper despite cutting her 2nd tooth!
I spent some time writing Thank You cards for the amazing shower gifts I received, then spent some time worrying….worrying about how late the cards are and wondering if Liv naps enough… which led to googling sleep training and wondering if I am creating bad habits.
Then the rollercoaster started… Is she over stimulated? Under stimulated?Enough tummy time? Is her head round enough? How’s my milk supply? Will she take a bottle the next time we try?
This perpetual groundhog day know as “maternity leave” leads you down some serious head trips…
But! Livvy is happy, smiling, strong, gaining weight and sleeps 7-9 hours a night. I eat well and go to mommy and me yoga …and I drink some wine.
So you know what? There are clean sleepers in the drawer, cold bubbles in the fridge. I am going to sit back, sip champagne, watch her smile, and try not to worry too much. Love, being present and the best intentions are enough.
