since the spring semester ended i have been at home full time with abbey. maybe when (if) we have additional children or when abbey is older, i won't find my days filled with so much (gasp!) boredom. it's true-people with babies really DO still get bored. but, for right now-what to do!?? there is really only so much singing, reading and block stacking one can do in a day. she is also a much better nap now and takes about 3, 1.5 hr naps a day-so after i get a work out in, make lunch and clean up a bit-i am left sitting wondering "what now?"
i'm hoping to find an organization to volunteer at on a regular basis when we move and i'm also hoping to find a moms group of sorts because, dear God, i need social interaction!
you may be asking why am i not working. well, working part-time is just not an option once the cost of childcare comes into play. and honestly, as lame as it may sound and as bored as i am some days, i just can't really handle the idea of put abbey in childcare from 8am-5pm, 5 days a week IF staying home with her is an option. for now, staying home seems to be an option and, while it may not sound like it right now, i am really am so grateful for it.
i've just got to find a balance.
