These past few days have been very busy for me. My husband had to travel for two days for work and I was alone with Thomas. Although Thomas isn’t a fussy baby, it isn’t so easy to take care of a baby by yourself for few days. Pierre always comes home for lunch, which is great since he helps me to give Thomas lunch. And also my husband is home everyday around 5ish, which gives me some time to work on my blog while Pierre is playing with Thomas. He also gives our baby boy dinner, a bath and prepares Thomas to sleep. After all that, it’s my turn to breastfeed Tom and sing lullabies until he falls asleep. Around 8pm Thomas is sleeping and he just wakes up the next day at 6am. AH-mazing! (It wasn’t always like that, Thomas used to wake up every two hours during the night). So, as you can see Pierre is a very participative father and when he is not here with us, we really miss him.

I have to confess that these two days without Pierre’s help were tough, but I believe I managed well, especially because Thomas is such an easygoing baby. I could cook, work a bit on my blog and take care of him (play, give food, bath, put to bed), but it isn’t easy and you have to be very organize and determinate to do all this. Ah…. And I can’t forget to say that you need a very good night sleep 😉 Just another thing you need in order to have a very productive day is to have a great meal that fills you with good nutrients and energy.
