A Day in the Life of a New Mom
3:00 am - Moan as Desmond squaks over the monitor. Go pat his back. Crawl back in bed. 6:00 am - Desmond's asking for breakfast. Feed and bring him to bed with me. 7:15 am - Say good-bye to Daddy and go back to sleep with Desmond. 8:30 am - Desmond's wanting second breakfast. Diaper and feed him. Get "presentable" in as much time as he allows. 9:00 am - Work out at Baby Boot Camp or run some errands. Desmond falls asleep in the car on the way home and hopefully sleeps long enough for Mommy to get a quick shower. 11:30 am - Feed Desmond lunch. Put him down to play until he's fussing for a nap. 1:00 pm - Eat a quick lunch and work like mad while Desmond's sleeping. 2:30 pm - Feed Desmond and let him play awhile. 4:00 pm - Continue working while Desmond's napping again. 5:30 pm - Daddy's home! One of us feeds Desmond while the other fixes dinner. 6:30 pm - Play with Desmond or put him down for a nap if he's sleepy. 8:00 pm - Change Desmond into his pajamas, swaddle, feed him, and put him down for the night. 9:00 pm - Relish the quietness! Tidy up the house, watch some TV, and try to go to bed before 11! 11:30 pm - Drifting off to sleep thankful for my wonderful family and hoping Desmond doesn't move a muscle until 6:30.
