Motherhood and…

Reading, writing, and just general housework.

Motherhood is an adventure. The biggest challenge is figuring out how to continue to live your life while simultaneously providing twenty-four hour care to a helpless infant. Truly a mind-boggling brain-teaser. However, I’ve learned a few things over the past two months about prioritization, multi-tasking, and efficiency.

Reading – It took me an embarrassingly long time to figure out that I could nurse while reading. Audiobooks may also be an option, albeit one I haven’t utilized yet.

Writing – Also something I can do while nursing or holding a baby, somewhat. A notebook for new stories, or my e-reader for editing make it possible, though somewhat tricky. The hardest part is balancing the notebook on the arm of the chair.

Housework and other activities – Two words: BABY SWING! Truly, my productivity has skyrocketed since acquiring this indispensible piece of baby furniture. It makes everyone happy.

Of course in another few months I’ll have to figure out a completely new system as his routines change and he goes through different developmental stages.
