Ever since I’ve gone back to work, I haven’t really quite got the time to sit down to pen down my daily thoughts. All I was looking forward to after work is to spend that one hr time with her before she goes to bed. Good that she is being on schedule but the bad thing is, if I have to work a bit later, I wouldn’t get to see her except in the morning for like 10mins. The woes of a working mom.
It is the weekend again. This is the 2nd weekend since I’ve gone back to work. I must say I don’t hate going back to work because it is kind of a breather away from baby. However, going back to work makes me appreciate and look forward to weekend even more. I, now will plan for more quality time with my baby.
So that’s my weekend loves. Have a good weekend ahead as well! Will post again!
It has been a pretty amazing journey being a stay at home mom especially when I am such a workaholic. I used to think that I would be the kind of mother who can’t wait to get back to work. I had a lot of passion for my job and I truly enjoy working. Now, today, 18 weeks after giving birth to my baby girl, I am feeling a little emotional as my daily routine would be changed and the number of hours to see her would be greatly reduced.
Oh dear, time really flies. It seemed like it was just yesterday that I just popped. In just about exactly 6days’ time, I would be heading back to work. I must say I definitely will miss seeing my baby girl.
(Ps: there are 2 video files, please allow it some time to be uploaded.)
As per my previous blog post, my baby is officially 4mths old today. When she was at 3mths old, I was eagerly searching for swimming classes for her but unfortunately, it is highly recommended that she starts at 6mths old. Thus, I had to prebook her into a swimming classes when she is 6mths old later. This is how anxious I can be when it comes to swimming.
In my personal opinion, I think it is extremely important to know how to swim, it is a life saving skill. But I found out that it is not as easy to make a baby learn to swim as I thought it would be, because if you start her off wrongly, she would be fearful of water. I thought that since she likes her bath, swimming is no feat, then I got to find out from many mothers that swimming involves putting the head into the water, and if that step is done wrongly, the baby would be fearful of water or swimming, so I got to do it really tactfully.
Wow, time really flies. Jan would turn 4mths coming Sunday. It also means the end of my maternity leave and returning back to work. I haven’t been blogging much only because. I’ve been trying to train her into Gina ford’s schedule. It wasn’t easy for sure. There were lots of crying because I’m trying to train her to drink and sleep at certain timings and for a certain time. I must say, it was super tiring and heartbreaking for my husband and I to see her cry like that. We are also very fortunate that we don’t stay with any of our parents because they definitely wouldn’t make scheduling possible.
As the title goes… Time flies. Baby Jan is already 3mths 1 day old. When I first blogged about her, she was only about 6 or 7 weeks old, and now, she is already 3mths old with a stronger neck and with plenty of expressions.
