Killing 2 Birds With One Stone

I am the type of person who likes to maximise my time as I find 24 hours in a day just too short. I always wish that there were 30 hours in a day, so that I have the extra 6 hours in a day to get my beauty sleep and to indulge in my hobbies!

My hubby and mil always tell me not to read my newspapers when I have my meals but I find that if I don’t do anything when I eat, I am wasting my precious time. I’d spent almost a decade of my life doing that when I was in the corporate world. I had always read or worked on my PC when I had my lunch coz I just didn’t have the time to read if I didn’t do it during my meal times.

I find that I hardly do anything with Baby C these days, except feed her her bunch of health supplements, antibiotics, nurse her and feed her breakfast, lunch and dinner everyday… day in day out. My entire day is spent feeding her and I hardly have much time left for anything else. So to make full use of my time, I now flash cards to her during her meals. I’d asked hubby to bring the detachable table for baby’s Safe n Sound high chair back from his office last week and now, baby can play with her toys whilst she eats. I can also read to her as I feed her. The detachable table had been kept in his office for the last 2 years, ever since Sherilyn outgrew the high chair.

Baby C loves the flash cards and would look at the cards attentively with a smile on her face.  Sometimes I would test her (which is actually not advisable) and sometimes she got them right.  Well, I think it’s just coincidental that she picked the right card.

Baby C could hardly sit still on her high chair.  She always stands up and wriggles her way out from the safety belt.  Flashing cards to her and giving her toys to play with manage to keep her still during her meals.
