Since becoming a working mom, my afterwork routine has continued to change along with my son’s rapidly changing stages and schedule. I’m pretty thrilled with our performance now that Don’s 2 and 3 months. Don is now eating close to normal food and can participate in mini/hysterically funny conversations about his day at the dinner table. He enjoys the routine of putting his bib and place mat in the laundry bag and runs eagerly to the bathroom to wash his hands. Tonight, I was even able to lift some weights, cook dinner, clean the dishes and do a load of laundry all while Don watched an Elmo dvd.
Being a working mom is like orchestrating a fine piece of music–lots of moving parts that need to come together in order to get the desired result. Tonight, I liked the result! Some nights I’m not on my game and other nights I don’t want to be the conductor, but tonight I liked the result! A beautiful evening with laughter and a complete meal.
