Two weeks ago:
We celebrated Thanksgiving. My parents and sister came into town for the week and it was wonderful.
I survived my first week home alone with two kids.
We went to a play date.
We started going to The Little Gym again. Since I can’t take Squish to swimming lessons by myself anymore during the week, I decided we needed another energy outlet.
We turned his carseat around. Such a big man!
I posted this tip on Instagram and thought I’d share here too:
Life-changing tip for parents!! To lock your kids into one app on your iPhone (i.e. Keep them from deleting your emails, taking a million pictures with your phone, etc), go to settings – general- accessibility – guided access and turn it on. Then you can open an app and triple click the home button to turn it on. Hit options to choose what they’re able to do when it’s turned on, like change the volume, use the keyboard, etc. To turn it off, triple click the home button again and enter a passcode that you created and voila!
I’ll write more about my breastfeeding journey in an upcoming post but I did give a shoutout to all my fellow breastfeeding mamas out there when I shared this pic…because it’s no joke:
Let me tell y’all a little bit about breastfeeding. It’s challenging, exhausting, time-consuming and oh so rewarding…all rolled into one. It takes time, patience, dedication and did I mention time?? So if you know a breastfeeding mama, give her a hug. She’s working harder than you know!
Little Miss turns one month old today! Crazy!!
