As I sit to write this article there is one thought that is crossing my mind again and again- “Should I use this time to sleep instead?”
This is when my baby is asleep. There is a whole list of things to be done after the baby is sleeping but what should I do first??
I guess every mom goes through this dilemma.
Should I do the dishes first? (But what if the baby wakes up from the noise! But it is necessary to do them first! No I cant afford to wake him up now…let me take it up last.)
Should I clean my room? (Yes I can do that. But that can be done when he is awake as well so why waste this precious time on it.)
I had to clean my bookshelf. (It hasn’t been cleaned for few days now. Yes lets do that first! 🙂 Hmm…but think of other work too what if I am missing out on something more important!)
I have to put the clothes out for drying. ( Yes that’s what I’ll do first.)
Should I just relax today and not do anything! ( I am working all the time I need my time too)
Or should I finish the book I started 10 days back but didn’t get time to finish? (But you have the house lying as a mess how can you think of reading a book right now!……But I need my ME time..)
Just sleep and don’t do anything!! As I am becoming more cranky than my baby because of less sleep. ( I am sleep deprived dear…I should sleep even for half an hour….but sleeping for only half an hour will make my head heavy!!)
And I chose to write about my mind-fight instead of doing any of the work.
I guess I should go back to prioritizing my stuff before the little ninja wakes up.
Wish you more happy moments of a sleeping baby to all Moms 😛
