Baby Burn Out

Am I the only one who gets baby burn out? I mean, not that I don’t absolutely love my babies. I could talk about all the fun things Collin does all the time. But there comes a time when I just can’t/don’t want to talk about it anymore. There are other things in life other than pregnancy, child birth, nursing, changing diapers, doctors appointments, and parenting in general. Right? Trust me, my life is over run by all of these things too, and for the most part that is my life. But just for a week, ok, maybe a week is a little long for some people, a day or two, I would like to NOT talk about how I’m feeling, how much weight I’ve gained, how much the baby weighs, how to get them to sleep, how long they do or don’t sleep, names, showers, registries, what stroller I want or how to decorate the nursery, have I thought about this, that and the other. I would love to talk about a movie or a new food recipe or decorating my room, I’ve even turned to couponing for crying out loud!

Don’t be mistaken. I’ve VERY happy for all of my friends and family having babies and I’ll talk about it all day long. But when one goes to a “9 to 5” job isn’t that one of the last things they want to talk about at the end of the day? Or was that just me? I need some adult conversation, not just mommy and parent conversation in my life sometimes. Which is why I am very much looking forward to the Ladies Retreat this weekend. I am going to miss my husband and baby like crazy. But Momma needs a little non-baby for a minute.

  1. Don't feel bad girl! I know how you feel. I think we should plan an old fashioned, baby free, dinner and a movie girls night out! :) Let me get past Mothers day and I'll set it up! :) But I will say that its hard not to talk to you about all of those exciting things because of just how cute Collin is and how new and exciting those twins are/will be! hehe
