Maternity Leave Dream


I know I still have 4 months until Maternity leave but for some reason I cant stop thinking about what this whole 3 months off from work will be like. Some know me, and some have no fricken clue who I am well... I love vacations, I love weekends, I love not being at work:) I DIE for the Real Housewives show on Bravo I just want their lives, I dont think its to much to ask. I guess I should have re-thought my guy choice 3 years ago, oops! So when I was told I was getting 12 weeks leave I was as giddy as a little schoolgirl. I will have all day to myself with my little newborn, he will obviously be sleeping through the night, we will go for walks, I will lose all my baby weight in a few weeks... life will be so grand.


NONE of this will happen. According to half my friends my child will have ADHD because I'm still drinking one 8oz cup of coffee, gotta love the advice you get from friends that have never had children:) But the reality is Maternity leave is not going to be a 3 month long vacation, I cant wait to report back to this post in October and realize how seriously wrong I was. Should be a fun day. I prayyyy that he will be sleeping through the night by the time I have to go back to work, any Mommys out there that have tips for babies sleeping through the night would be greatly appreciated.


  1. Ive been reading (because obv Im in the same boat as you) that once you can, give baby a bath every night ... it makes them tired and they're more likely to sleep longer!

    1. I've heard that too- if so that baby will soak in a bath for 5 hours lol

  2. Just remember what living with me was like (add case)...and put that vision in your head with your caffeine addicted child ;) love youuuuuuu
