Well, I've now successfully completed a week as an official stay-at-home mom. It's been rough. I've had a few days that started at 4 am. I'm still having problems getting Adèle to go to sleep in her own bed but Zoé is really having bedtime success. My husband points out that we had the same problem with Zoé going to bed last year so it might be an age thing. My husband works long hours as an installer so he wasn't coming home until 9 or 10 at night. But the last two nights, he's been home before dark which has been a bit of a treat.
I've done a little stitching. Not much since the bulk of the housework now falls squarely on my shoulders but I find that since I did a bunch of preliminary cleaning, the house is easier to maintain.
