Our homeschooling schedule was switched to accomodate my prescribed bed rest and the birth of our daughter. We took off nearly 2 months for winter vacation for the event. My school-aged daugher (1st grade) was significantly ahead of her public-schooled peers and we figured we could use an extra month in the summer if needed. But our 2 months is over and my newborn is over 2 weeks old so its time we get back to work. The problem is, my baby cries like crazy(and super loudly) the second she is put down (even if she was sleeping at the time) and its hard to get anything done carrying her around. I have a moby wrap that works occasionally during her nap times, but if she's awake we can just forget it.
Any creative ideas for handling this and getting some school work done???? I would feel awful if my older daughter had to lisen to so much crying and fussing when trying to get work done.
