So how did I do? I failed, miserably. I started out pretty good with the activities I had planned for me and Hailey. We went to lots of story times, playgroups and other activities. I planned activities based on certain themes for the days we would be home. But then every time we went to an activity with other kids Hailey would get sick. Every single time. In the middle of December she got really sick and ended up on Nebulizer treatments because she was having a hard time breathing. So I decided that I had had enough of her being sick and I decided we needed to stay home more often.
I did keep up with planning activities at home for Hailey until a few weeks before Christmas. Then I was so busy doing things getting ready for the holidays that I stopped doing it. And I haven't started again.
When I look back at my menu is makes me feel like a terrible mommy- I had all these great ideas and I didn't do most them. And recently (for reasons I will blog about another day) I have had to spend more and more time on the computer. So I have been feeling incredibly guilty about that and feel like I am not spending enough time with Hailey.
We have started participating again in playgroups and activities with other kids and now that spring is almost here I know we will get even more involved. I am also going to start planning activities for Hailey and I to do at home again.
So, to wrap it all up- I did terrible with my plans and I feel incredibly guilty about it. I can't get that time back to redo it, so I am going to start fresh today with some new plans.
