while this sounds a little silly; I collect eeyores. I have one that is a stuffed animal and I leave it on my bed sometimes. One night I "woke up" in the night and was trying to put the eeyore doll in the bassinett.
I tried looking for a mother's helper or something similar but I couldn't really find anything in my area. I finally gave in the other day and asked a girl I know to come over and help me. She isn't really helpful with the kid part, she plays with my 3 year old sometimes but isn't really hands on, but she helped me get some stuff done housework wise. Gosh it was nice. My 3 y o is going through kind of a "mean" phase so I am afraid to take him to play with other kids. He isn't mean on purpose he is just rough. He also started biting me recently and I'm afraid he will bite someone else. My dh is away at school right now so I am getting a glimpse of what the next year will be like. wow am i gonna be alone! good thing for message boards huh!?!
thanks for all the suggestions everyone. I hadn't got to read any lately with dh being gone I haven't had a break. i am looking into a new sling though so thanks.
