Oddly enough, I think I'm getting less done around the house than I did when I was working. Violet's "down time" (when I'm not actively feeding, bathing, changing, walking, or playing with her) is maddeningly unpredictable. I can't say there's not enough of it; it's just that when she goes to sleep and/or plays happily alone, I never know if it's going to be for ten minutes or three hours. So I never know if I can finish what I want to start. And yet I feel like I have an infinite amount of time. So nothing feels urgent.
Very good description of life with baby. Getting stuff done is hard. Adorable pictures, btw. :)
Thankfully, I don't feel frazzled or tired or stressed; just lazy.
I found it really difficult to judge whether Iris would be able to stay asleep if I put her down, and so I was never sure whether it was worth trying to do something, or whether I should just stay put and enjoy the sleeping baby time.
