Cloudy with a chance of clouds

Wednesday, May 22

This weather makes me want to curl up in a bunch of blankets and read a book. Except I have a kid determined to set a record for most things pulled off the table in one day and I haven't read an entire book since before she was born. I guess I'll settle for blogging while she naps and watching A League of Their Own.

Oh yeah. I also made meatloaf. It's in the oven now and it smells amazing. I decided to take advantage of this cool, gloomy weather and use the oven one last time before summer hits and makes me want to never see the oven again. I'm getting pretty good at this getting-dinner-ready-while-Calliope-naps thing. She has her naps timed perfectly. Aaand now that I've said something she won't nap properly for the next week, I'm sure.

How people manage to take care of a toddler, keep the house clean, keep everyone fed and still manage to be well-rested and in a good mood is far beyond me. I've tried setting up a schedule but it's so easy to say "eh, I'll just work double tomorrow". Then after a few tomorrows I end up poorly cleaning the entire house at lightning speed during Calliope's nap and I regret not following my schedule.

How do you handle it?

  1. I know what you mean! Well, kinda. I don't have a kid, but it's still hard for me to stick to a schedule and get things done. I wonder how the moms do it!!
