    I can relate to you needing to get your exercise out of the way before the baby gets up. Most morning I get up before anyone else and get my exercising out of the way right away. There was two days during my husband’s vacation time that I slept in and then when I went to exercise my son joined in with me. It was alright but I had to be careful as he almost knocked me over twice while I was exercising. His exercising can be a little wild.

    I hope you have a great week and find a good VA to work with.

      Hi Shelly, that’s so funny, and your son sounds a lot like my 6-year-old. :) I’m still working on getting up before the baby. We co-sleep, so it’s a little more difficult than if she slept in a crib.

      I think I’ve found the right person to work with here on The Sensible Mom. I’m interviewing her next week, and I’m looking forward to this new chapter. :)

    With both my kids we co-slept so I know it’s more difficult to get up and away without waking the little one up. Maybe you could get some walking in while out at the library each day. A few laps around the parking lot while your older kids work on their schoolwork? I used to mall walk with a friend when my daughter was small. She didn’t mind riding in the stroller so we could walk for about an hour. But there is a temptation to shop at the mall.

      Thanks for the tips, Shelly! I have thought about how to get in some exercise while I’m at the library. I wish there were treadmills in the rooms there, because then I could walk and work – without having my baby girl try to join me. :)
