Mikey is going through one of those shitty toddlerhood times when he NEEDS to be on me whenever I'm around. Is not a want, is a full on need. That meant I end up holding or wearing this little monkey as I work on cooking, sorting out the house and try to get stuff done for my practice (focus on the word ➡️TRY⬅️). I remember when Matt was going through this I was just getting my Hashimoto's diagnosis and sorting out my own health chaos, as his clinginess felt like a burden... I was still recovering from PND and it all felt like SO MUCH! But now, as I work more and more learning about human development and psychology, this step in Mikey's development reminds me the rapid brain development and growth he is experiencing, the fact that within few weeks or months his brain will reach a new milestone and he'll fully differentiate between himself and me... he will finally be his own little person! ⚠️Yes, these days are effing tough.
⚠️Yes, I'm exhausted and losing my temper at times.
⚠️Yes, I can't wait to have him over this.
⚠️Yes, cooking with 11kg in my back isn't my ideal of heaven... BUT
This too shall pass, and when it does, I'll miss it. So, I'm committed to savour it, to remember that he's just a baby for a little longer, to do what I can to recharge and move forward.
Yesterday, I made 3 dishes, sorted out our weekly meals and answered emails with him in my back (occasionally demanding me to dance around!). This is what my journey into Holistic Motherhood looks like.
How is your week so far? Anyone baby wearing a little one too?
PS: As usual, my @ergobaby comes to the rescue in days like that!
