Happy Monday Mamas!!
Okay okay okay… Some days I find me asking myself, Am I a lazy mom?
Maybe I have been feeling this way since I have just now gotten over my cold that I have had for FIVE weeks.. yes five. Due to lack of sleep and a little grumpiness, but I have felt a little laziness overcoming me!
Now let me explain.
Some days I just would rather not deal 🙂 Can you feel me?
For example I usually put Edison down for one nap in his crib each day. Usually in the morning when he is most tired and easiest to put down. But come nap #2 if we are not going out and about that day I find myself just loading up in the car to go for a 30 minute drive. I turn on a podcast, go get a Starbucks and just drive around until little mister falls asleep. Because 9 out of 10 times he does!! I feel that it is also time for me to just relax, clear my thoughts, chat to friends or family on time, or feel motivated after some podcasts. But am I being lazy for doing this kind of a lot?
Maybe once or twice a week?
After driving around for 30 minutes I come back home and leave him in the car, parked in the shade with the windows down and trunk open. I leave my house door open and listen for him to wake up. He usually will sleep for another 10-30 minutes.
(I never leave him when it is hot outside)
Another example is early in the morning or fussy times throughout the day.
Edison could nurse at any moment. So yes I plop out the boob and nurse him, more like comfort feeding. But it always solves the problem, no more fussiness. In the mornings I get to keep sleeping because I nurse him on my side instead of just waking up to play with him an extra hour throughout the day. Am I being lazy?
