When my 10 month old son was born, I didn’t talk on the phone (except brief conversations with my husband, mom, or sisters), browse the internet (Facebook), or watch TV when he was awake. I wanted all of my time and attention to be devoted to him. I left phone calls, tv shows, and chores for when he was napping or at the end of the day when he was asleep for the night. I assumed the lack of personal time was temporary and kept telling myself that I would have more time when he got older and was more independent.
Here I am, 10 months later…with even LESS free time and LESS opportunity to chat or email with friends and family. While I couldn’t be happier with my son and our days together, I sometimes feel that I am SO separated from the outside world and know that I am extremely difficult to get a hold of these days.
So when my girlfriend, Leah, sent me this article, I couldn’t help but smile. It’s a relief to hear that other moms have the same issues I do. It makes me feel better knowing that I’m not the only one who sometimes just wants an hour of “quiet” when my son naps!
Hope all the moms (and dads) out there enjoy this article as much as I did!!
