If you haven’t read my previous entry go ahead and read it. The first part was me feeling down about myself and then a description of my day to day routine with little man. However, after I wrote the entry I started feeling better. I guess I just needed to get it out and I also appreciate everyone who left me a comment. It is nice to know that I am not alone in feeling the way I do and that it will get better as he gets older and I get used to things.
One thing that helped with feeling better is that I had a pretty good day. It started off hard because little man was fussy, but I think that was because he was working on a poop. After he pooped and then peed on his head because I took too long cleaning him up (I totally cracked up when that happened) he was less fussy. He napped well and I feel like I read his cues better which makes my day better. I guess I’m getting the hang of his cues. I also got things done today, which are small things in a normal persons life, but for me it’s pretty good. What did I do today? 1) I showered and got out of my pjs when I was home alone while he napped, 2) I wrote a bunch of thank you notes, 3) I got little man in his car seat and into the stroller, and then walked down to the mail box, got the mail, and then walked around my small neighborhood for a little bit until we both started to get sweaty. I also looked up the new mothers group the hospital where I gave birth has. I was thinking that it was heavy on the breastfeeding side of things. However, from reading the description it seems like it’s more of a new mom get together and commiserate and meet new friends sorta thing. I think I’m going to give it a shot and go to the next meeting. The group is every monday morning and the first four meetings are free. I hope that I can meet some new friends and feel better about things through this group.
So there. I had a pretty good/productive day. I also bet the fact that today is thursday and the fact that hub’s doesn’t have to work tomorrow might have had something to do with it. I’m sure the over analyzing/worrying I’m a bad mom feelings are not gone for good and they will probably come back as things happen, but for now I’m feeling better and had a good day.
