I had all these great plans to get out and have coffee with a friend, stop at a couple of shops, and go to the bank. And all I got done was a little shopping. The days just fly by, no wonder we say that children grow up so quickly.
When you have a little one, it is amazing what takes up the day. Sometimes it's difficult to get out the door...and then there is the unpredictabity of the length of naps. My little guy can nap from 30 minutes to 3 hours. How does one plan a day with variances like this?
A common feeling among new moms is the guilt of always being late for everything. Fortunately, some more experienced mom's told me that it takes at least a year to figure out your day with a new baby. And I try and share that wisdom with new moms I meet all the time (it aleviates my guilt too!).
