We went to church today, and it went better than I feared it might! I farmed the older two kids out to willing "grandmas" (we don't have nurseries or sunday schools in our church) and I kept ds2 and the baby with me. She pretty much nursed through the whole service, until the very end when she VERY LOUDLY filled her diaper!
Ds2 was very good, though a bit energetic....he hasn't been to church since dd2 was born, so he was very excited to see everyone, and of course the fuss everyone made over him (today was his 2nd birthday) and the baby had him very excited, too.
We were all exhausted by the time we got home, and everyone took naps! dd2 actually napped for two hours in her crib!
First time ever!! Which was awesome, because I got to nap without tensing my muscles. I only slept for about 45 minutes, but felt so refreshed that I accomplished a bunch of clean-up before she woke up. It felt really good, and I hope it is a sign of things to come....One good nap like that every day, without having to be on me, would be SOOOOOOO helpful!
Not holding my breath though....I know it's still too early to think it would become a pattern.
Tomorrow we go solo--dh leaves at 6:00am and won't be home until 4:30 or so. And Tuesday he will get home about 4, but has to leave at 5 for a church meeting, so I'll be solo from 6 am til 9 pm on Tuesday!
Pray for me!
