Daycare: T-13 days – daddy and baby at home – a running descent into madness?
Today’s one of the days I’m not working and I’m at home with the rugrat.
10am nap time.
10:40 forget about that, it’s swinging chair time
10:50 the swing, being too much for Maggie to handle has caused temporary unconsciousness.
10:51 realizing a sleeping well-tempered baby at home is not all that interesting to write about. Contemplating stopping this log for the day since happy baby at home with dad = nothing to write about.
11ish accidentally hit post instead of update over at Pocketables and post an article that’s 1/rd done, not spell checked, missing an image, and has the title incorrect. Day is going amazing so far.
11:41a fart has been let out that sounded like a trucker shifting gears going down a hill. I have preemptively used the equate baby gas relief as this thing looks to be ready to blow.
12:05 the gas is coming out of both ends of the baby now. It seems a cycle of she gets upset, gets angry, angry makes her stomach upset which produces gas, that makes her mad, rinse recycle repeat. New plan of attack: burp, fart, faux swaddle til she calms down.
12:11 seems to work, she calms down… unswaddled and she’s out like a light
from the other room I hear a fart, another fart, and then screaming…
12:30 have resorted to something my mom told me about – warm hand on baby belly. Seems to be doing the trick as the equate either isn’t working or isn’t working fast enough.
