I’m not ready to leave Veronika with a babysitter yet… but I also have moments when I need, well, my brain and my hands! Now that Veronika is old enough for quality face time with relatives, I can try some time being “on” as me and “off” as a caregiver.
When you need a moment, invite someone (grandparents are usually more than willing!) to take time “on” with your baby. Veronika absolutely adores staring at these new and comforting faces.
Meanwhile I’m free to get things done – bills, Christmas clean-up. And if I really have time for a pause, the crossword!
What do you do in your parenting “off” moments while someone else is “on”? Do share in the comments!
