When Mila was an infant, about once a month I would spend an entire 24 hours in bed with her. Nursing, cuddling, skin to skin. We’d listen to the She and Him pandora station and I’d rub her legs and feet while reading out loud huffington post articles or other peoples blogs.
But she got older, we got busier, and now our quality time is spent going places.
We recently re did our already pretty simple bedroom and made it even more bare and minimal. It’s the perfect space to get my head clear. The only distraction is our record player and my iPhone of course. But no clutter, no dishes to be done, no packages being delivered or episodes of dance mom on tv.
So for the first time since moving into our new house, I spent the day in bed with Mila. Talking to each other and practicing the hokey pokey. Nursing and napping for hours. Who says Mondays have to be a drag? I think this might be our new beginning of the week routine.
