A Busy Month

It will be a busy time for me beginning next week. I have to make a list of everything I need for myself and baby to take on a plane trip from CA to KS and it will be a two day plane trip because baby can’t sit still for a whole day of flying. He has also developed a huge appetite lately and wants to eat food or breastmilk every hour. I do food one hour and breastfeeding the next hour. I’ll be bringing a lot of baby food for just one flight. I also ordered a portable high chair and crib (for the hotel stays) so we’ll see how that works (or doesn’t work). This will be baby’s first flight so we’ll see how he likes or doesn’t like it.

I will also be living with my sister for about a month till the furniture arrives at the place where we will actually be living. So, living at a place for a month and then picking up and moving elsewhere is gonna be a chore also. I also don’t think baby will like not being able to mess up everything in my sister’s house. At home right now, he has many areas that we allow him to mess up around the house so he can satisfy his curiosity and need to be adventurous. Baby will also need to accustom himself to eating and sleeping in a new environment. So, that might be a little stressful.

When we get to the new house, some baby-proofing is going to need to be done.  I need to get permission to do that so I’m going to try magnetic ones that don’t use screws or whatnot. We’ll see how they work or don’t work.

I also have to find a babysitter/nanny/housekeeper since dad will be going out of the country for his job for a while. Since baby doesn’t like new people and takes a while getting used to someone new, this will be stressful also. Also, not all babysitters/hired help are reliable or actually put in some effort. They just want to do nothing and get paid for sitting down on their butt. So, that is something I need to watch out for also. I may consider getting cameras/security system installed for this reason.

So, yep, a busy month is ahead. I think it will be a busy two months actually. If not longer than that. Dad/husband will be busy too helping us move and getting himself ready for his new post outside the country.

I haven’t forgotten my book. It will be ready for sale eventually.
