And so begins my last week home with the baby. I am not ready. But Ben goes back to school tomorrow and perhaps a week of staying home with Evan by myself will help me get ready for work. It’s just been so nice with all three of us home all summer – I could do this forever. You know, if someone paid me.
As Evan is becoming more aware of his surroundings, we’ve noticed him noticing the television. So, in keeping with the no-screen-time-until-age-two advice, we’ve implemented a no-tv-while-the-baby-is-awake rule. And so far it is AMAZING. Our house is so peaceful and relaxing and if we get a few minutes to ourselves we actually spend it reading. And when the baby is awake, we’re interacting with him. We still watch an episode or two of something on Netflix before going to bed (just finished up How I Met Your Mother, now starting with Frasier), and we’re actually considering dropping cable altogether. Anyone done it and recommend it?
As for reading, I am currently working my way through Tolstoy and the Purple Chair, The Kill Zone (the Maze Runner prequel), and A Land More Kind than Home. Hoping to start Fallen in Love (Fallen series) and Gone Girl this week. What are you reading?
