My poor blog’s been neglected, and to a certain extent, so has my son.¬† Steve and I have been working LATE for several nights this month getting the office set up and ready for patients.
Calvin, playing peek-a-boo
Last night, we worked at the office until 1 A.M. (Calvin slept soundly in his pack ‘n play in his designated romp room).¬† However, even though we felt like we accomplished a lot regarding Ikea furniture assembly, creating patient forms, and hanging posters, we really did a number on ourselves with a super late bedtime.
Calvin stirred sometime around 4 a.m., and I thought I was dreaming when I faintly heard him crying.¬† He did the same thing around 5 or 6 a.m., but we were too dogged out exhausted to take care of him until 7.¬† The poor thing awoke with a NASTY diaper rash–he’d been in a mucky diaper far too long.
I’m sure this is only the beginning of the endless amounts of guilt I will encounter as a working mom.¬† But, I will begin with going to bed earlier so I can take care of my early riser.
As for you, my Dear Readers, I will do my best to continue to post on pertinent parenthood things, baby travel things, and Calvin photos.
Also, stop by Deep South Moms on Tuesday, December 16th to read about our traveling adventures.¬† There’s some great lessons learned on what to expect for airline travel when you forget your photo I.D. (that’s what happens when you’re starting a business and juggling the mommy and wife roles, too–brain overload and things get forgotten).¬† But hey, we survived, and (sneak preview), they let me on board!
