Trying to be the Yummy Mummy while organising christening abroad,organising christening party in UK, getting my driving licence done and planning to decorate the whole house …. It’s proving to be pretty difficult 😄
Before I became a mum I was prabably a workaholic who wasn’t capable of seating on her ass if there was the smallest thing to do. I loved doing things and seeing the end result.
I have adapted very easyly to being a mum on maternity leave, and I love it, love every minute of it. Only thing which I crave is the feeling of accomplishment, knowing that I have done something. On the beginning when Chloe was few days old it was cooking a dinner. Most of the time now it will be cleaning the house , doing and putting away washing, going shopping etc …. Did you get the amazing feeling of achieving something really big and important after cleaning a bathroom when your baby was a month old ?? 😁 (heheheh times has really changed). Chloe is getting bigger and so is my need to complete and achieve things😊 as if being a mum wasn’t enough.
Chloe obviously comes first : keeping her entertain, going for a walk, playing with her and going to baby classes it’s a priority. That leaves me time when she naps, around 20 minutes in between the naps and some time in the evening to do everything what I mentioned above + everyday running of the house + trying to spend some time with my husband ….. As you can imagine it all was proven a bit difficult to achieve 😄
I needed to realise that I am not a superwoman with superpowers (Just a superwoman) .
With lack of superpowers I needed to step back, re prioritise, do one thing at the time and stay focus!
So of we went with organising Christning. Finding lots of restaurants and hotels in Poland while seating in Coffeeshop with Chloe sleeping. Then on her second nap if followed up on all of the RVPS and in the evening checking them and sending emails to all of them. Now because I did it on Friday night it it meant that i had to wait till Monday to hear back. It made me feel soooooo good ! ! !
Now we have to buy light stroller for travelling as I am not doing it again with out everyday pram (nightmare) highchair, travel cot and lots of clothes for Chloe. Get the driving lessons booked somewhere, finalise all Christning stuff and then fit in decorating 🙂
……. I will just have to prioritise 😄
……. One thing at the time 😄
