It Ain’t E.A.S.Y. Being Greasy!!!
Week one is officially in the books and Mason still has all his fingers and toes. Aside from a weird fever I picked up early Thursday morning I have to say the week was a success. In fact it was a little to E.A.S.Y. Not really, but when I did have some down time I picked up a great reference and put to work some great advice. The best tip I read was E.A.S.Y., an acronym for a loose routine I picked while reading the Baby Whisperer. I think I mentioned this routine and this book before but it’s definitely worth the review. E = Eat; A = Activity; S = Sleep; Y= You. So it’s a simple concept where baby (Mason) Eats, plays a little and does some kind of Activity (belly time, sticking his tongue out at me, taking a bath, maybe some heavy snatch balances) then he Sleeps (hopefully). While he sleeps I get to Facebook, watch crossfit video’s, or catch up on parenting 101 books. Sometimes I nap myself. The best part of using this technique that I have noticed is that Mason is learning to put himself to sleep. It’s pretty cool. I am also getting pretty good at figuring out what he wants and needs. That’s getting easy because after his nap and feed I usually change his diaper and with those three boxes checked Little Man is an easier read. I am not saying I’m a pro and there aren’t moments when I get frustrated but things are definitely going smooth while Mommy is playing doctor. If I burn the house down or Mason turns green I’ll let you know or ask for help; Until then – Taker Sleezy!!!
