Ever since I’ve been a mom to Adi, I’ve had to go several routines most especially that I am a working mom.
I know I had to specially knowing for the fact that babies have that their baby routines and changes as they grow up.
Ah, the Joys and Joys of motherhood. =)
As of the moment, Adi sleeps very late, sleep transitions from 7 pm to now 11 pm.
I have to lull him to sleep and put him on my legs just for “lalong” what we usually do is like rocking him but instead of a rocking chair I use both of my legs and sway from left to right and vice versa. He’s gone heavier since then and I had to endure a lot of back pains (as far as I could remember.)
His waking moments are about from 6 am to now 8 am, which brings to my attention that he is our live alarm clock, it’s a bit funny since I wake up to him pinching my cheeks eyes or just slapping my face. He is still breastfed for at most already 1 year and 5 months already since Aug of 2012.
Going to the office early has been an option for me now. I know I had to move faster so I can make up for lost time and head to office before 10 am. So, what I do I take him up on watching this, Monster’s University. I think I have seen this for the nth time already. haha! But it is fine, I loved it too just like my Adi does, too.
While he watches, ( a few meters away of course to protect his gentle eyes ), I hurry up and take my bath, change, prepare and head on to the office often skipping my breakfast just to be able to get early and knock off early so I can get to him, cuddle, play, breastfed, give him his vitamins and then watch Monster’s Inc or Monster’s University and the list goes on and on, whichever comes first.
I know that my life will never be the same again, that I don’t get to read my fave novels often and spend more time being with friends. But, I will never trade it for anything. Being a mom is way cooler and tougher but what the heck it’s pure fun. =) Just like what this quote from momcenter says:
who doesn’t love being a mom?
