Today was a very looooong day for this mama. Naptime was nonexistent for both Addie and Blake. Well, Blake slept several times, but only if I was holding him. Now, I have learned to handle one needy child but I have yet to master the art of catering to two needy children at the same time. My only solution today was the Baby Bjorn. It was a life saver. Blake could sleep while I played with Addie in her room. Perfect.
When Daddy got home, I quickly passed Blake off so that I could make dinner. Eric liked the idea of carrying him around in the Bjorn because it meant he could take a work call AND drink a beer at the same time. This, my friends, is how a man multi tasks.
When Addie goes to sleep tonight, picture me holding Blake the same way, but replace the beer with a glass of wine and the phone with a Milky Way Midnight bar. I think I have earned a few extra points :-)
