Something that I have been trying to do more of is to just take some time out for myself to relax a bit more and take it easy. Ever since I had Felix life has just been go go go. Because he was early we had to stay in hospital for a long time and then as soon as we got out I have been planning my weeks so we have things to do every day with only the odd day with no plans. But even on those days I still feel like I have to deep clean the whole house, sort through things as well as looking after a baby which is already time-consuming enough. It has really gotten on top of me lately and I have days where I just crash and feel exhausted to the point of feeling ill. Even though Felix is a good sleeper I still run around the house doing things because I hate just lounging about. This is something that I’m trying to change because It’s not good for my physical or mental health. I have only had a baby 3.5 months ago so I need to take time to rest and look after my body more.
I even feel crap that I haven’t blogged in a while but I just haven’t made the time to fit it in, blogging is something that I love doing so I’m going to give myself days/afternoons to just chill and not worry about those dishes in the kitchen or the fact the bedroom isn’t spic and span.
If you have just had a baby then remember to take some time to have those lounge about days and forget about the housework. It will always get done at some point, even ask for help because nobody minds. Soak in those early days with your baby because it’s true what people say when they say it zooms buy and even though you’re excited for the next stage, you get upset that they’re no longer a newborn.
This is just a little rambling about something I’ve been thinking a lot about lately as I have been feeling guilty at the thought of a day at home but It’s good for you and all that special bonding with your baby.
Enjoy your little ones whilst they are still little.
