how to get no work done

1:35: Decide to put Gideon in his chair and do some work in the office.

1:35–1:45:
Gather boy, chair, bink, dog/blankie combo & laptop on multiple trips to office.
Clear stack of CDs to another part of desk.
Remember that I was putting them in my iTunes library and decide that I'll multi-task that while doing some work.
Put in The Concert for Bangladesh disc 2 to import.
Plug in camera and open iPhoto to import photos real quick.
Check Google reader for updates. Read one. Gideon starts to fuss.

1:45–2:00:
Gather boy, bink, dog/blankie combo & head to nursery.
Read I Love You Stinky Face & rock Gideon.
Put Gideon down for nap.
Hope phone doesn't ring for next half hour or so.

2:00–2:05:
Get piece of cake.
Peak in nursery on way to office.
See that boy is on his belly (mama don't like that) and roll him gently back 3 times while trying not to wake him.

2:05–2:17:
Write this post.
Unplug camera.
Change CD.
Get water.
Boy is on his belly again! Roll back. Again.

Now I'm ready. I'll let you know how that goes.

2:18–2:38:
Check mail.
Decide this is really cute.
Switch CD.
Open up 5 tabs in Firefox.
Still not working.

2:45–2:55:
Gideon's up.
Get him out of crib.
Bring him to office. Spits up.
Wipe up spit up.
Take abnormally fussy boy back to nursery.
Change diaper.
Wipe up more spit-up.
Get Boppy.
Start nursing.

3:30:
Done nursing.
Baby sleeping in lap.
Need coffee.
Still haven't done any work.

Ahhh... the perks of being a working mummy... isn't life grand? ;-)

Vegas Princess said...

I have to agree with Beebers...I do enough procrastinating on my own!

Shades said...

I was going to say something and now I've forgotten what it was...

...something about something my sister used to do or some item she purchased to keep my niece in a certain position and prevent her from rolling over...?

We had a wedge that kept Tink and Pan on their side... I wish I knew who made it, cause I'd send you the link. Perhaps he is too old for it now anyway.

and that is why working from home mommy's have to have a nanny/sitter type person.

Now I remember why I don't have any kids...

Beautiful little boy will be just fine sleeping on his belly - I promise! Especially since he's old enough to get there on his own. However, did have thing I laid Aria on that had roll on each side that kept her from rolling over.

Now I now why you couldn't have company!

My daughter always slept on her belly. We just let her. She didn't die.
