I had a baby 3 weeks ago and also have another DS that is almost 3.
Today is a gorgeous day out, the first one of the year. I'm so yearning to pack up the dog and go for a hike. But I can't.
I'm stuck at home doing housework and I might be able to take the kids to the park later.
Since I had ODS, I've never felt the desire to go off and do what I wanted. I've never minded doing everything for him and my new DS.
It would be so nice to just go for a hike, stop at a nice shady tree and read, then call up the girls and go to a local wine bar and have good wine, yummy cheese and great chocolate.
I understand that this is just part of being a parent, but I would love to just have a selfish and self-serving day.
Is this a case of baby blues or just normal parenting thoughts and feelings?
I feel so bad for just wanting to have a day to myself!!!
