Things we cant do while the baby is sleeping


This list was triggered when my husband asked me if we can go for a walk now that the baby is sleeping! It might seem like a harmless request at first but what he meant was "Let’s get out of the house while the baby is sleeping in her crib"! I was like "What? What about the baby" And then it hit him! He felt like an Idiot! The baby has got to him finally! (It got me while I was pregnant!!) We both are so used to saying "Lets watch TV, the baby is sleeping" and "Let’s cook/eat, the baby is sleeping" and so on and so forth, it was nt long before someone saying "Lets get out, the baby is sleeping"!!

So here’s the list:

1. Go out for a walk, of course!

2. Or go out for a movie!

3. To put it simply, can’t go out!

4. Cant do anything at a normal pace like taking a shower or cooking or cleaning or eating! Everything has to be hurried!

5. Can’t watch a thriller movie on TV if you are the "What happened, what happened, what did I miss" type!

6. Can’t start laundry if you have a noisy, earth quaking dryer!

7. Can’t start anything which you can’t stop midway! Like switching on the oven to bake a cake or try to clean the closet! When every piece of clothing is out, your baby will get up and you will find the house is much more messy now!

So the bottom line is you will be pretty much just waiting for your baby to get up so that you can just go about with your day!
