I have been reading Insurgent, of the Divergent trilogy, for over a month. I just cannot finish the book. I really liked Divergent, but Insurgent seems really slow. I want to finish it so that I can start Gone Girl. My mom just read it and said it was crazy good. I am also reading Bringing Up Bebe, a book about French parenting. I am only a couple chapters in, but it is very interesting to see how different the French view everything regarding pregnancy, child birth, and child rearing.
I am starting to get anxious about going back to work. I want to go back, but I also know that I will miss my baby girl so much. I wish I could wear her to work and not have to be away from her. Ha. In a perfect world, right? I have some specific concerns about continuing to breast feed, pumping at work, and how it will all work out with daycare. I am probably over-thinking the daycare part....I know I am not the first mom to pump and bottle feed at daycare. Any tips and ideas regarding this stuff is greatly appreciated, however!
I still have 10 pounds to lose to get back to my standard weight. I didn't weigh myself regularly before I got pregnant, but I was probably about 5 pounds heavier than I was when I got married. However, I have no motivation to do anything about it. I swore I wouldn't be like this when I was pregnant, but it is way harder to get my butt off the couch and go for a run when there is a snuggly baby to be held and household chores that need to be done. Or crime shows to be watched, if we're being honest.
