Some people seem to think a SAHM sits around a lot, eats bon-bons, etc. Ha! Between bottles and purees/puffs/other food, Max eats about 5+ times during the way while my husband is at work. Then factor in quite a few diaper changes. Depending on the day, it can take a fair amount of time to get Max to sleep for his naps. Play time, reading....so much to do!
Besides just the usual busyness of taking care of an 8 month old, Max and I are quite busy! We don't go somewhere every day, but most days of the week, we go out.
Last week, we went to Stroller Aerobics once, went to my husband's office for his birthday and brought cupcakes, went to my weekly Weight Watchers meeting, and went on a playdate.
This week, we're going to two appointments for Max, my weekly WW meeting, having a friend and her son over for a playdate, and hopefully going to the park with a playgroup. Plus, I have an appointment on Monday, so my mom is coming over to watch Max. I usually go grocery shopping while she's here. If Max is awake, he and my mom will most likely come with me because he loves going out. The people are his favorite, but he also enjoys seeing all the different things at stores.
My parents kept Max overnight a few days ago. They went to the grocery store, and apparently Max was flirty with one of the ladies there. He is a total flirt and definitely loves the ladies. I told him he needs to work on his demographic, though. He tends to be interested in women my age or older. Way too old for him. Ha!
