For the last year or so I have raved about Tuesday it was my day off with Lucas where I didn't have to work and I loved our days together. Now that I am on maternity leave I am raving about Wednesday's, the day Lucas goes to his day home. On Wednesday Nathan and I get some special time together. For example when he woke up from a short nap today I was able to take him into our bed and nurse him to sleep again, so he got a full two hour nap. It's also quiet. I'm sure the quietness drove me crazy when I was on maternity leave. But I don't have my little buddy here to talk and talk, so I enjoy the peace of Wednesdays. Its also the day I use to get stuff done. Appotiments, needles, shopping. Allmuch easier to do without a thee year old.

I really debated about keeping Lucas in his day home while on maternity leave. I felt guilty about sending him away when I was home. But I do love the days with my baby.
Plus I think its nice for Nathan to have his mommy to himself for a day.

Till Tomorrow

I think it's great that you get to spend a day with Nathan alone.

I think you should continue with it. I know that my older son is much more social than my middle son because he was out (at a babysitter) with other people, and my middle son wasn't.

And you do need time with the baby, don't feel guilty! I had a hard time because my oldest are only three years apart and I felt like I didn't have the proper time to give them both the attention they deserved, so if you can have some alone time with them, you should do it.
