mothers should sleep anytime their babies sleep, but I don't follow such rule because, it's the time for me to do something for myself. Like take a bath, prepare my breakfast, and do the laundry or wash the bathroom when I was back home then. This morning, I quickly took my bath as the kids were preparing for school, because I observed for the past 2 days that he sleeps for about an hour! Which is not enough for me to bath and prepare my breakfast. I ought to be preparing my breakfast right now, but my love for blogging took over!
Keeping my home baby friendly is a priority to me rather than aesthetic. I rearranged furnitures to create a wider space for playing and blocked exit to the kitchen. I avoided furnitures with glass tops and sharp edges. I am always sweeping and picking any object from the floor to avoid him falling on them or putting it into his mouth. Shoes and slippers are off the floor, wires are pinned up on the wall, to avoid him pulling them down. Sockets are cellotaped, to avoid him sticking his fingers into them or licking it. All, chargers are unplugged when not used. Bathroom door is always locked! All cleaning chemical and detergent are hidden in the uppermost cabinet in my kitchen instead of the bathroom cabinet.
I blocked the TV stand stand, to prevent him from picking the remote control and wanting to use it as a support to stand up. I remembered back home, I rearranged the furniture in my home when my hubby was hosting his friends. One of his friends said that, he thought, I didn't know how to arrange a home whenever he came visiting. I was surprised to hear such, and explained to him that, I pushed all the settees against the wall, parallel to each other, so as to create a wider margin for them to play, since the sitting room is not big and they cannot play outside often, and I can block the entrance of the sitting room, to prevent them going into the kitchen when am busy.
Child's-gate is used here to block entrances, exits, stair-ways. Floors
Have a blessed week ahead everyone. # Please, wash your hands often#
