Last night (Tuesday) we were sitting on the couch. I was holding Vivienne.
Craig: “So, what do you have going on tomorrow?”
Me: “Well. I have to take my Wednesday vitamins.”
Ah. Maternity leave.
It may seem like a vacation, what with so few scheduled tasks, and all… but let’s be honest: it’s not. It’s merely that transitional time necessary to convince yourself that you can a.) handle your new baby and b.) successfully integrate said baby into your your old/new life.
About the new pill/vitamin box above: Um. I love it. Does this mean I should be getting my AARP card next? Possibly.
My MIL was here and she brought along with her two of those days-of-the-week pillbox organizers. I was in love. Why hadn’t I thought of using one of those sooner? I’m a vitamin taker (prenatal (good to take while breastfeeding), one for Vivienne’s brain development, lysine, acidophilis and fenugreek) so to not have to open all five vitamin containers each morning? It’s liberating. And organized. And perfect.
Thanks for leaving your little pillbox organizer for me, MIL.
Thanks to you, I know what I have to do tomorrow: take my Thursday vitamins.
