It’s a bit of a cliché that gets asked frequently “What do you do all day?” I was on maternity leave for 10 months, and have been lucky enough to go back to work part time, only two days a week. And to be honest, I ask myself this question all the time! I never seem to be able to get it all done and I don’t know why!
I struggled for a long time during my maternity leave, with tiredness and lack of energy. And I don’t mean new baby tired, the newborn phase felt great, I wasn’t getting tons of sleep, but it never seemed enough to make me want to do things or go places. But as G got older I seemed to get worse. Turns out an iron deficiency can really screw you over!
With that sorted, I do feel better and have more want to get out and do stuff. But I don’t feel like I am doing anything. Should I be more structured with our activities, should we go to more groups….any groups, do more crafts, music, and sign language!?
These days with blogging, twitter, Pinterest, there are so many examples and ideas to do with our kids, so maybe that’s why I feel I should? But G is so active and clever (yes I’m biased, but he’s awesome!) that I think I should be encouraging him a whole lot more!
So that’s what we’re going to do! Try new things, meet new people, and go to more places. And we need more at home activities! I’m going to try to write a little weekly schedule to make sure that I have an answer to “what did you do all day?”
“What do you do all day?” Do you have a schedule or just go with the flow?
