I’m the type of person who always needs to be on the go. I need to get things done and do everything. Now that I have a little one, she just gets dragged along with me. To be honest, I don’t even remember when we last had a day in of just chilling out at home and not doing anything.
On Saturday, we had a 3 year old’s birthday party, a Canada Day parade, a bridal shower and a fish fry to attend. Of course, in true C fashion, I had to do it all.
By mid-afternoon, Little One wasn’t looking too well. Her eyes looked really dopey and her cheeks were red. We stayed and enjoyed the festivities with friends and family. By Sunday morning, both Little One and I were terribly sick.
The moral of this story? Don’t try to do it all. Learn how to pick and choose the most important things to do. Don’t drag your poor 19 month old to every single event you are invited to. Babies and mommies need rest too.
