Thank you so much for the thoughtful comments and messages regarding last week’s post. Sometimes you just have to get something off your chest… I apologize for not being able to share details.
Other than all of that, this week felt a bit chaotic… or maybe I felt anxious about upcoming chaos. The next few weeks area jam packed with going back and forth to my parents’ house and spending some time at my in-laws as well. Along with that I have birthdays and Passover to bake for and for the first time ever I think it might not all happen. I also may or may not be behind on recipes for the blog. I told myself before that I really don’t have to get them up every week, but easier said than done! I made a pretty awesome cake yesterday but I’m not sure how soon I’ll get to posting it. I also want to put together a post on baby travel… Where does the time go?
In the mean time, I’m really trying to prioritize taking care of myself a bit. So maybe that is where the time is going? That basically means that when I’m not taking care of L (aka most hours of the day), I’m sneaking in a little physical activity (mainly yoga, some walking and a couple of miscellaneous cardio workouts very, very infrequently), keeping myself fed (I think L is in the midst of a growth spurt and I’m super hungry all the time… yes, more than usual), and squeezing in a little downtime with Matt (that means no computer and limiting the phone) when I can. Oh yeah, and passing out early like it’s my job. If I could, I’d be asleep at 8pm every night. It seems necessary for my sanity.
Now for this week’s updates

I hope that you are all having a wonderful weekend!
GOOD-you need to take care of you!! You and little L and the hubs will all be happier that way :)
I’m sure it’s easy said than done, but just breathe!! The blog will all still be here when things calm down. I promise. :P
No judgement on the 8pm bedtimes. I think it is a standard, or should be, for all moms.
Don’t let your blog get in the way of life. Do what you have to do. I know it’s hard not to want to be able to do it all, but sometimes things you love (like cooking) will have to fall by the way side…it’s not the end of the world. Those holidays will come around again next year and you can go all out. You have to put baby and yourself first for sure…hang in there! (now if I could only take my own advice)
