Daily Diary: Wrapped Around His Little Finger

Screen shot 2013-03-29 at 8.58.25 AM


I’m a different mom with baby number three. Maybe it’s because I know this is my last. Maybe it’s because I know how quickly it will all fly by. Maybe it’s because I’m older now and can appreciate it a little more. Whatever the reason, my parenting style has completely shifted with Caleb.

I don’t put this boy down.

He is going to be so SPOILED!! But then again… they say you can’t spoil a baby, right? Who are “they” again??? I hate those sayings. lol.

I’m even trying to work a sling and I was SO AGAINST slings with my two other kids. Of course, I need a science degree to figure them out. I just want one that is a piece of fabric – old school! I can’t handle the ones with an 80 page instruction manual. My brain doesn’t work that way. I gave Bill THREE different slings and told him to figure ONE of them out. Whichever he works out is the one I’m going use and then I will FINALLY have a free hand!!

I’m learning to do things at 4AM.That’s when I do most of my writing these days. Forgive me if you see any typos. It’s the only hour where Caleb sleeps in his bed and I have the use of both hands.

Again, it’s not a big deal. I’m ok with this set up because I know it won’t last. My other two kids are so self-sufficient.  In fact, they’ve become my little helpers. SO EAGER to do something for Caleb. Bringing along bibs, diapers, pacifiers – you name it! It’s amazing.

He’s starting to fuss. So off I go. 🙂 I’m literally wrapped about his little finger.

  1. Vera, you should try the Pognae – – with him – I know that I put my daughter in it as early as 5 weeks to take my older one to school. You can even nurse/breastfeed in it, too. I used to swaddle her up and put her in there so I could be hands free. I did try the Moby wrap but I get so confused with the tying and all that and at least, the Pognae was easy to just snap on and go!

  2. Oh, Vera. I was a different mother with baby number two. It gets better every time:). And I never figured out those stupid slings..seriously. Glad I am not the only one, ha:).
