Save the Mombies

New Mombies are initiated into society on a daily basis. This exhausted segment of the female population can usually be identified by dark circles under her eyes, a staggering walk, and a cup of coffee in her hand. Women turn into Mombies after giving birth and only one thing can stop them: sleep. Yet, scary statistics reveal that mothers of children under 18-months-old are barely clocking in five hours a night. My son is nine months old and I’m getting about four hours of sleep a night. He just wants to be held to sleep and then cries when I lay him down. So, I’m a Mombie. I could try sleep training, but as working mom who only sees her baby at night, I feel awful watching him cry. If he wants mommy love, he will get it! We were doing much better than the every two hour wake up,  but I suspect teething might be a cause for his wake-ups.

Back to Blogging

I spend a lot of my time as a 9-5 publicist pitching mommy bloggers lately. It’s given me the urge to get back to my own blog and spend a little time doing something for myself (which I never do) and indulge in something I love: writing! Granted, I will be doing most of it from my phone on my lunch break, but that’s OK! Here I am, two years after I started this site. My nails aren’t chipped because I don’t even paint them anymore! Hello, life with a toddler and an infant! Can’t wait to share more updates, tell you what products I love and maybe even bring you interviews with some pretty awesome people. Welcome to my world, again!

I usually work from home three days a week, but lately I have to be in the office three days a week, so I’m only home with Genevieve two days. I know, I’m fortunate enough to even be home those days, but it’s a big change. Our weekends are getting super hectic. When you have things to do, people to see, events to attend, etc. you’re not getting that important one-on-one playtime with your baby. She’s just coming along for the adventures and having fun. We’re super lucky that she is so well-behaved at restaurants and is friendly with new people. However, at parties, etc. friends and family want to see her. And there goes the mommy time I so yearn for all week long with my social butterfly. When I get home at night from work, Baby G is ready for dinner, her bath and a bottle. She sometimes gets cranky and just wants to cuddle, which of course …
