Just one more baby

Although I have plenty of babies in my household, I have agreed to watch one more on Saturday. John and I are going to watch my friend's daughter this weekend, and she is going to watch both of my babies next weekend. I am pretty excited about this arrangement. I haven't stopped talking about it all week.

John and I have never had a day alone together since Porgie was born. Not even once. Honestly, I am not sure what we are going to do with all of our free time. I am thinking that I might just sit on the couch or take a nap or get in the shower. All I want are the simple things in life. The things that people without children take for granted.

Of course, I am all talk this week. Next week, I'll be fretting and worrying about leaving my babies in someone else's care. I don't think I'll have a problem leaving Porgie, but I know I will worry about little Izzy. He needs his mama's boobs.

Even if I do start having doubts, remind me that we NEED this time alone desperately. Remind me that my babies will not starve to death after a few hours without me. Remind me that I want to sit on the damn couch and just zone out.

I am counting on you internet friends. Don't let me down!

I don't leave Lila much, and I've never left her overnight, but I think every parent needs a little time alone every once in a while!

You definitely need some "off" time. Enjoy it. :-)

I never realized how much free time I had until we had K. Now, well, I was spoiled pre-baby. LOL.

Izzy and Porgie will survive! I go to a bible study once a week and it's during the bedtime process. My daughter will NOT take a bottle so she misses that last feeding of the night once a week. And she's perfectly fine, goes to sleep and wakes up at her normal times like nothing ever happened. You definitely need this time and don't feel one bit of shame about it!!

Wow...are you guys even going to know what to do with each other?

Exciting. And don't worry, we're here to give you a swift kick in the arse if you need it. That's what internet friends are for.

Understood! We left Kalila w/ her Gido for the first time this last week... just for a couple hours... and with plenty of pumped milk (I actually sent too much, good thing it was kept cold and in diff bottles cause we had leftovers) I think it was harder on me than her lol.
