Being a mom really is a full time job. I’ve mentioned this before – feeding alone is like a 9-5 with a lunch break!Â But apart from nappy changes, feeding, expressing, bottle washing, washing laundry, hanging laundry and when you have a free minute doing non baby stuff like vacuuming the floor or cooking dinner, there are a lot of other things for moms to do.
I heard from a friend who’d like to get together next week. Her baby was born a few weeks after Ameli, and we’ve not seen each other yet. So I check my diary for next week and realise I am a very busy woman! Take a look:
- 14:00 Buddha babies yoga
- 20:00 Holistic Fusion (exercise class)
- 13:30 New mum’s post natal group
- 15:00 Baby signing
- 16:15 Baby massage
- 09:00 Lose your Mummy Tummy (exercise class)
- 10:00 Dcup Cafe
- 16:00 Wiggle and Dance
- 10:30 Yoga and relaxation (exercise class)
- 13:00 1 o’clock club
- 14:15 Latino Bambino (exercise class)
- 15:30 Nursery Rhyme Time
- 08:30 Dynamic Flow Yoga (exercise class)
- 09:00 Daddy Buggy Fitness (exercise class)
- 10:30 Baby Massage
Between learning to massage the baby,Â learning nursery rhymes to sing to the baby, baby signing to encourage communication skills, mom’s groups to learn to be a better mom/make sure I’m doing a good job, and exercise classes to make sure I’m around long term there’s very little time for anything else!
Martin wants me to take up a bigger part and become more involved with the business side of his freelancing, and I know I need to do it to justify not going back to work anytime soon, but I just can’t get my head in to work mode yet… I’m too busy updating my diary!
