I am not the night owl that most folks on MDC seem to be. When the baby goes to bed at 7, I veg out for the rest of the evening.... But, I am up with him about 5:30 or 6:00 in the morning. I'm also a SAHM, so my schedule is a little different.
I prep stuff early in the morning. At that time of day, ds is really happy to bounce in his johnny jump up or sit in his high chair with cheerios. I cut up anything that needs to be, brown meat, make casseroles, whatever needs to happen.
Then, around 3:30, I start thinking about supper. We eat at 5:30, so that we eat together before the baby goes to bed. I do find that I have to give myself a lot longer to put supper together than before a baby--I didn't used to get interrupted to nurse, to change a diaper, to encourage playing with a different toy...you know. So, for a meal that used to take 30 minutes, I give myself an hour. That way, with the interruptions, it's no big deal.
