Reese has been in daycare during my maternity leave while I stay home with Charlie and so far that has really been exactly what everyone needs. (I had a c/s so I can really focus on recovery, plus Charlie is high maintenance like his sister and doesn't sleep much unless he's being held). On top of that, Reese just really NEEDS the interaction and structure of daycare (it's very much run like a pre-school and she just loves it).
Anyway, I feel like such a wimp but I am actually scared to have both kids on my own this evening while DH runs on the treadmill. It will only be about an hour and a half between his run and shower, but I am kind of terrified!
Yes, I know I am a wimp and those of you who SAH with 1+ kids are seriously my hero! Charlie is just so fussy when he's awake and has to change positions constantly and walk around a lot and playing with Reese while I attend to that is something I haven't had to juggle yet. Not to mention the fact that she likes to climb on my lap and crowd us when I have to nurse him... I see some TV in our future.
