Things are going well in that we have had no injuries and we're all surviving, but it's kind of nuts around here. I more or less just fly by the seat of my pants all day. Gone are the days of planning a nice day of stimulating activities. I realize now how spoiled I was with one kid. Last summer I felt overwhelmed by just peanut. I was a serious wuss!
I am really lucky though. Peanut is adapting very well. We had a few days of worrying he was going to maim poor #2. He hit her and poked her a little too hard and a little too often for our taste. Now he pats her and kisses her if he pays attention to her at all. We've had a few moments where he was sick of me not being able to pay attention to him because I was nursing her for too long, but otherwise he's been great.
I've managed to take them both to the park and get a walk the last few days. I even mixed in a little running in yesterday and today. I just did very short running intervals just to get the legs moving and to remember how to run. The only problem is that I went out today with a full bladder and I paid for that mistake! I should have taken the three minutes to pee before heading out. I had a much easier delivery and the recovery is going great, but my pelvic floor muscles are still weak and need some time to recover. I can't take them for granted right now and must remember to pee before heading out for any kind of bouncy exercise! It's a horribly embarrassing problem, but a common one so I've heard. Any other momma's experience the peeing of the pants on the run after baby?
All right, Justin Bieber or whatever that dumb kid is on Ellen and peanut is screaming at the tv (I'm hoping in disgust!) Time to go!
