I realize that every day, I set Hayden down to play while I run around to do my own stuff (laundry, blogging, work, cleaning, etc.). It seems like one of my most-oft repeated phrases is, “Okay, I’m just gonna do (a list of six things), and then I’ll play with you.” Can an almost-6-month-old feel alienated? Could I be scarring my baby for life?
Two things I’m usually good about not putting off: eating and naps. I’ve been known to delay bedtime to socialize with friends and family, but Baby’s gotta eat and get naps.
I just feel like I need to be better at enjoying my baby while he’s awake. A possible sign of change for the better: lately, I miss him when he’s gone for naps.
