As strange as it might seem, I’m bored!
I hate to admit it, but it’s the truth. Not bored of being a mum, not bored because there is nothing to do – but the simple nature of the situation at the moment sees me sitting on the couch for large chunks of the day breastfeeding.
There is only so much TV I can watch, and that’s even after I’ve resorted to browsing all of the ‘TV on demand’ websites. I’ve watched more episodes of various shows in the last week than I have in probably the year to date.
With one, or often both of my hands and arms full of children, it’s difficult to do much of anything else and I can say that I am very much looking forward to the time when they aren’t feeding quite so frequently, or for quite as long. And to the time when Natalie is actually sleeping somewhere other than me – it’s a rare thing, but we’re working on it.
I know these early days won’t last forever, and I am taking deep breaths and being grateful for all the snuggles and love. That super productive wonder woman side of me is itching to actually DO SOMETHING though. I’m enjoying intense bouts of cleaning when I get a few hands free moments simply because it means I am moving, I’m up off the couch.
Makes it hard for writing stuff to even get a look in really, because that is more sitting down.
How is everyone else doing though? I am trying to keep up, but I’d love to see some comments from you all telling me whats going on for you right now. I miss all the interaction. I know things will balance out soon enough, then I can get back into the community feel 🙂
