7 Days In

I’ve completed my first week as a mother at home. The week began with a dull headache that lasted all day on Saturday. But slowly that knot of work stress has been unraveling and I feel more myself each day. I had one goal for the week: to rest. I did it!

Things I’ve learned:

  1. It’s a good idea to keep the goals for the week simple.
  2. My primary goal will always remain to take care of Alzette and to contribute to her growth and learning.
  3. Keeping our budget under control might be fairly easy if we continue to make all of our meals at home.
  4. Getting out of the house just twice during the week makes all the difference.
  5. Teh-teh* was right: Bananas are the best first solid food for baby.
  6. Quitting my job was an excellent decision.

*Teh-teh = my mom (Arabic for “Grandma”)
