Two weeks after becoming a mother of two, and one week into my temporary stint as a stay at home mom, I have shrugged off half of my duties and enrolled Gabi in preschool three days a week. Really, we'll all be much happier this way.
Apparently I'm not quite as fun and creative in the playing-with-kiddo whilst fending off fatigue, changing numerous nappies, cooking and cleaning, making 40 ounces of milk daily, and oh yes, answering emails and reading and planning syllabi. I need help. Gabi, of course, is thrilled. I am hoping Ray adapts to the bjorn soon so I can satisfy his need to be held all of the time while also getting work done.
How come I totally forgot about all of this stuff? Is four years really enough time to totally brainwash a person?
