Desmond loves to sleep and nurse. During naps he will sleep latched on, but he also loves to snooze in the stroller while daddy takes him on a long walk. At night though, it's the boob or bust. (No pun intended!)
When I say sleep and nurse, I really mean it. Many nights I've tried to sneak away, only to return because Desmond was up crying for me ten minutes later. The night is supposed to be adult time right? Time for grown up fun things. Time for relaxing. Time for conversation with daddy. Time for sex! Let me tell you something. You can do all those fun things AND meet your sleep nursling's needs at the same time. You just have to do it a little differently.
Here are a few things I like to do during my night nursing marathons.
On Life Listed (Beta)
Paradoxically, one of my most fun life list items was also my most embarrassing. Rather than write a post about it, I thought it would be better to create a video and actually show you my embarrassment. Check it out below:
I have been thinking a lot about storytelling lately. This is a skill that I want to actively work to improve upon for the rest of my life. It is a uniquely human skill and the tool I want to use to leave a legacy.
I am working on this goal in two mediums, writing and video. Luckily, writing is what provides the power behind video so these two endeavors have a lot of overlap. The immediate plan is to take some of my favorite blog posts and convert them into short videos like the one above. Eventually, I want to get me out of the videos and highlight other people's amazing stories.
