Things are different with a baby.
For example, say you want to go to the coffee shop on the corner to grab a quick decaf and then come back home. What normally would have taken 10 minutes now takes 2 and a half hours. Why? You have to feed baby girl, change her diaper, get dressed, make sure your boobs aren't leaking through your shirt, change her diaper again, load her in the carrier, calm her down when she wakes up screaming, make sure you are holding your keys since you can't really wear your messenger-style purse and the baby carrier (bag lady, seriously) and then leave. Once you're outside you have to stop for every stranger and not-stranger and tell them your entire birth story before you can move on and you have to take the time to unstick baby girl's face from your chest where your combined sweat is gluing her cheeks.
But I kind of like it ❤
Plus I like to think that this extended time indoors is seriously reducing my risk for liver spots and various skin cancers.
