You didn't really think this "germ-a-phob, overly worried, paranoid, scared to death" mommy was just going to immediately stop using it, did you? Ha. I didn't think so. I am going to have her wear it tonight. However, while we are at the beach she will be sleeping in the same room as us (in the pack-n-play) and I will "wean" her then. Actually, I guess I am "weaning" myself. But I don't care. I have to wean myself. I can't just do something every single day for almost eleven months and then just stop. It takes me a little time. Especially something like this. Of course I am absolutely thrilled, but I always take baby steps.
Friends, we are off for our family vacation tomorrow. I can hardly wait. Several friends and even family members have said, "Vacation? Heather, you stay at home so you are always on vacation." Well friends and family, I must agree, but also disagree. And before I actually started staying home I may have made the same exact comment. Yes, I love staying home with Morgan Kate. Yes, I love being here everyday with her. And yes, spending time with my precious baby is comparable to vacationing everyday. However, this staying at home thing is no piece of cake. I don't care what any of you say or think. It's hard work and at the end of the day I am just as tired as my husband who works. So next week will be vacation for me. And I can't wait.
