It appears our ‘usual’ morning nap isn’t happening this morning, so I’m attempting to blog this out with a 13 day old baby on my lap. It isn’t as easy as one may think.
Know what helps? Playing this through my computer speakers. 😉
Know what else is challenging? Feeding yourself with one hand, but that’s exactly what I did yesterday when I was home alone for a full day.
…was easy enough. Go Lean Crunch with 1/2 a banana, chia seeds and almond milk.
A spoon only uses one hand. Easy Peasy.
Apparently being a mom now entitles me to say lame things like ‘easy peasy’.
…was a bit more challenging. The turkey sandwich was easy enough, but surprisingly the salad was not. I needed an extra finger to scoop up some of the salad goodies, and may or may not have resorted to just licking my plate.
…was snacky. Crackers, hummus, a prune (what? They’re actually tasty!) and a chocolate chip cookie bar (DANGEROUS!) brought over by a friend from our church mom’s group.
I also chowed down on an entire steamable frozen bag of edamame. A great one-handed snack! A not-so-great picture.
…this week is brought over daily by friends from the mom’s group at church. How nice, right?? Yesterday Tamara brought chili over macaroni. It’s so nice to not have to think about dinner.
I know I usually do the calorie count, but I have no clue how many I ingested yesterday. I’ll get to that at some point, but for now I eat when I’m hungry and try to add in some greens when I can.
I’m still in survival mode, people! 😉
Speaking of eating, Hailey turns into a little caterpillar after she gets a tummy full of milk. It’s really freakin’ cute!
Have you ever had to do everything one-handed from an injury, baby, etc?
What was the most challenging task?
So far I can do laundry, empty the dishwasher and feed Koda all with one hand, but I cant fill up my water bottle from the filtered water in the fridge- so frustrating!
