Maybe Tomorrow.

Sorry ladies,, I still can't seem to find it in me to do this again today. I apologize, and please know that it's not that I don't want to be on here. I know that you all come on hoping for a new post every day and I hate the thought of letting everyone down.
I can't get into details but my appointment with the doctor wasn't exactly as i had hoped yesterday.. I thought that he would just fluff everything off and send me on my way. It turns out that he wants my baby to see a pediatric cardiologist in Hamilton. I'm trying not to worry, and think the best, but the blow and shock of him saying that has taken its toll on me. I just need a couple of days to pull myself together which I know that I can do..

For today, I am including a great article that I came across online. It really hit home for me and hopefully you'll all enjoy it. Sorry about the width of the article, everything will be back to normal tomorrow.


Stay-at-home mom Tracy Cooper looks back at five years of Mommy Diaries
 and wishes she spent less time making homemade baby food and more time on herself. 

Here’s a short, effective recipe for making sure both you 
and your husband are equally sleep-deprived in your baby’s first
weeks:

Have your husband get up in the dead of night to change the baby’s diaper when the
alarm goes off for her feeding. As mother of the exclusively breastfed newborn,
then get up yourself to – duh – actually feed said baby. When you’re done, have 
your husband, who has lumbered back into bed and fallen into a deep sleep,
get up again to change the baby’s diaper. About two hours later, repeat. 
This way, you will both be bleary-eyed, zombie-like creatures stumbling about
the house during the day.
This insanity is indeed what Tom and I did after Mary’s birth. I guess since
he had several weeks off work, we wanted to share, in our excitement, every 
task as parents.
But why did we change diapers before and after every feeding around the clock? 
This represents at least 20 diaper changes a day! I can assure you,
our just-as-adored baby #2 never got such over-pampering.
Mary is now five and our other daughter, Adelaide, is three. And as I 
think back to those first days, weeks, months and years as a parent, there are a
few ways I’ve changed, and things I wish I’d known.
For example – and this is going to sound counter-intuitive – I wish I had 
given a little less attention to Mary in those two-plus years she was an only child.
I really did think I had to be entertaining and interacting with her all of her waking 
hours at first. While this was fun for her and for me at the time, I feel like it took her
a little longer to learn to entertain herself than it would have if I had let her play on
her own more. I think it also turned her world upside down for a bit when her little sister 
was born and I just couldn’t play with her all the time.
I would be a little less uptight about some insignificant safety concerns. 
I remember getting squeamish when I felt relatives or friends were holding baby 
Mary with her head not at the perfect angle.
I wouldn’t have made so much baby food from scratch. I know, it sounds 
awful, but I really feel this one. How many hours did I spend after putting 
toddler Mary to bed at night, roasting sweet potatoes and steaming broccoli, 
then pureeing and spooning it into plastic cubes for freezing? You know what I 
wish I’d done with some of those hours? Read a non-baby book or painted my 
toenails or in some other way taken time to recharge. There are many high-quality, 
organic baby food options out there now – including frozen, pureed vegetable cubes!
I would have pulled that thumb out of Mary’s mouth when she discovered it 
at eight weeks of age. Thumb-sucking was so cute then, and it meant she never 
wailed at night for a pacifier that had fallen out of the crib. Five years later, 
she still loves to suck her thumb and I have been unable to find a way to 
motivate her to stop.
I would have implemented a ‘tidy-up’ policy years ago. I used to just find it easier 
to do after Mary was in bed. Instead, I am met with teenage-like refusal from my 
five-year-old who doesn’t understand why I suddenly want her to clean up.
There will likely be more regrets as Mary gets older. But so far, there are more 
significant things I wouldn’t change: spending quality time with her and Adelaide; 
reading to them and providing lots of books; insisting on a no-hitting policy 
between the girls; setting aside lots of family time and voicing and showing 
affection often.
There is one other thing I’d change. I didn’t know you could love someone 
so much until I held Mary in my arms. With that knowledge, we would have 
started our family earlier!
