there were 3 am feedings. I knew that it would be tough having a newborn and homeschooling but knowing it an actually doing it are two different things. Even though AJ is my easiest baby, it is still tricky to home school with a newborn. Over the last few weeks I have found ways to make it happen. I discovered tools that make it manageable: a slow cooker, bread maker, a baby sling, and a boppy pillow. Here is a loose schedule of my mornings. You'll notice I don't bother using actual times for anything, it makes me feel like I am failing if I am behind 15 minutes.
Nurse the baby and he goes back to sleep
Prepare slow cooker and the bread maker for for dinner
Put in a load of laundry
Home school while nursing again
I guess I could skip the bread maker but it is so easy and makes me feel so fulfilled when the incomparable smell of bread fills the house. I am currently in search of the perfect bread maker cookbook. This one is in the lead. I have made the burrito bread, the Parmesan corn bread, pizza bread, and our favorite white bread.
I would love to hear other recommendations.
