Daily Schedule: 6 am – 10 pm: Survive

Every day that I’m home with Baboo, I do one thing.

It’s not the same thing. I don’t, like, have a secret to impart that will help you optimize your time with your baby. I’m just saying that when I look back on the day, I can get about one thing done in addition to the basic baby maintenance activities that are required.

Today I went to a moms’ group. Other days, I’ll vacuum or go grocery shopping. Still other days, I’ll wait until the baby falls asleep or becomes absorbed in something and steal a few minutes of work.

But I only ever get one thing done per day. A few times, I tried to do more than one thing, but I always wind up regretting it. So now I’ve solved all my parent problems by lowering my expectations.

OK, now add just one thing per day, because that’s all you get.
