I'm a Mom

First off, sorry for not posting in such a long time, but life around here is crazy 24/7. Anyways, you already knew I was a mom...and I already knew it...but yesterday confirmed it. My son is much more "hands on" than my daughter. Chana is pretty content just sitting in her vibrating seat, sucking on her pacifier. She doesn't need to be rocked or coddled. As long as she's not hungry or sitting in an icky diaper, she's content. My son, on the other hand, is cranky. Sometimes the vibrating seat is enough, but other times he wants to be held and rocked--and NOTHING else will do! In order to get things done, yesterday I discovered that if I put him in a sling carrier and walk around, he quiets down. If I sit down (with him still in the carrier) and swivel back and forth in my chair, it will work for a while...but when he notices I'm not up and moving around, he'll freak out. So yesterday evening I walked with him...then I stood in one place and swung him...then I'd sit down and swivel until he figured out that I was cheating...and I'd get back up and do the whole thing all over. This went on for at least an hour. I think this experience now puts me in the "mom" category. :-)
