I just wanted to fold the laundry. It wasn’t that much, about 4 loads. Every time I laid the baby down to get some of it done he would cry. Isn’t there an easier way to get housework done? Now I have a headache. Thankfully, the baby is sitting peacefully in his highchair watching his dad make supper so I could get the laundry done.
Some days housework is easier than others. This past week I haven’t gotten much of anything done. It is hard enough to get supper ready, doing the dishes too? Not happening until the baby is asleep.
I should get up earlier and get things done. But every time I have tried that, he wakes up early. Right now he is sleeping until 8:00, which is great. But if I leave the bedroom to do work I wake him up and then the two-hour feeding schedule begins.
So, how do I get the housework done? It is all about teamwork. If it weren’t for my husband I wouldn’t ever get anything done! He doesn’t really help with the work, but he watches the baby for me. That way when he starts to cry (the baby) then I don’t have to immediately stop what I am doing to get him. It is amazing at what I can get done in an extra five or ten minutes.
The downside to that is that is time that my husband and I don’t get to spend together. So I try to limit how long I work while he is home.
Okay, I better get back to work! =)
