I'm Baaack! (and I'm still HOT!)

Yeah, it's me, as modest as ever (please excuse my messy closet) I am still wondering what the statistics are on the survival rate and quality of life of moms (especially working moms) with two or more kids under three is. I mean, this is ridiculous - there are not enough hours in the day for ANYTHING, and I literally mean, anything. Even say, a load of laundry. And I am fortunate enough to have a live in nanny and my number one son does preschool, monday through friday, but I still am overwhelmed. Jesus take the wheel, cos my driving these days sure does suck, if you know what I mean.

So on thursday, just as I was about to start pulling my hair out, I (wisely) opted for professional services instead and had it cut into a short, slightly angled bob, which is, I hate to admit, slightly a la Katie Holmes. Nothing against Katie, but I consider myself an original. Please allow me my delusions. I am inching my way gradually to cutting it really short, like how I had it some five years ago, but my face is still too fat. So the bob, which is like four, five inches shorter than my previous bob will have to suffice for now. I have lost 21 pounds in three weeks post partum, so I am proud of myself. What sucks is the fact that I still have 23 more to go. I am wearing those Au bon pain bagels and starbucks lattes I had during my pregnancy on my belly, butt and thighs. I have got to get my workout on. Like yesterday. I mean, don't get me wrong, I'm still hot. Just grossly fat. :(

LOL! You look great already. Abeg where are you going to shed the 23 pounds from???

As for life without nanny - I feel for you - one tip:
pay the cleaning lady extra to wash and fold all laundry or
Do one load every day - don't bother folding socks and underwear and onesies - leave in baskets since you use them so often anyway.

Also - grab a copy of the mommy manual by Barbara Curtis - a little skewed towards stay at home moms but very useful.

Take care and remember they grow up so fast.
