The New Routine

It seems to be taking the family a while to settle in to my return to work.

The family. Not me.

Georgie is suddenly unsettled at bed time. He's crying every time he's put down in is bed, crying in the night, and will only be settled by me. Tom has started wanting more and more snuggles too, I think he got used to me being home again. And Jack is pushing and pushing his boundaries (although that's his age, not me being back at work).

But some else who "should" be ok but isn't is my dear dear hubby!

3 days I've been at work. 1 of those days my mum had the kids. So he's had the kids for two days, one Friday and one Monday. He has panicked, fretted, tantrumed, and not got a fraction of the daily housework done. The place is a bigger mess than usual and I think he's planning on selling the kids in to slavery - along with the cat - if they upset him any more. Safe to say he's not cut out to be a stay at home dad now we have 3 to worry about! He was late for the school run too, poor Jack.

It makes me laugh. It's the stuff that I've been doing all day every day for the last 9 months, and he can't cope with two days, two days there weren't even back to back!

But I wish Georgie wasn't so unsettled.

Making kids settle in bed itself a big challenge.. :-)

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out
