So it’s been a week and three days since I had my baby.
My recovery is going quite well because:
(a) I have a heroic husband who has been changing diapers, doing laundry, bringing me cups of water, letting me sleep in, and entertaining our 2-year-old.
(b) I’m surprisingly not horribly sleep-deprived (thanks to the fact that our newborn goes right back to sleep between feedings…she sleeps in bed with us, snuggled up by my side, waking up to nurse every 2-3 hours).
(c) We have wonderful friends who have brought us meals every day for a week. Mmmm. Those chicken and green chili enchiladas were SO good. As were the chocolate-covered strawberries…
Now, if only nursing would get a little easier…
Although I expect that my blog will be scattered with photos of baby bliss over the next few months, I also will be “back to business” this week with Tuesday Tours and Wordless Wednesday and the ever-popular Themed Weekends.
And speaking of business…
- I have a new Advertise page…which might interest you if you own a small company or you represent a big brand – and you’re looking for a powerful (and economic) way to reach moms.
- I have a new Policies page. It has a lot of rules and disclaimers and such, but it also tells PR reps and boutique owners how they can get a product reviewed here at Metropolitan Mama.
- I also updated my Favorites page recently. It’s a compilation of my favorite blogs and websites. Go ahead…take a peek…meet a friend or two. Hey! You never know! YOU might even be on the list.
So it’s back to business for me. Which does not mean I’m wearing a business suit and heels (or that I have showered in the past 24 hours). What it does mean is that I’m sitting here in my pajamas with a nursing baby cuddled up on my chest as I type…as I stay connected with you.
What it also means is that you can expect your “regular programming” around here this week.
Unless, of course, I get distracted:
