  10. OK, diaper again
  11. Nurse
  12. He’s asleep! Quick! Choose very carefully from the following options: “sleep while the baby sleeps” (yeah right) – eat something that requires two hands to find, prepare, or consume – pee! even poop without yelling to crying infant “sorry bud, mom has to poop sometimes too!” – shower during daylight hours – zone out on phone – review every photo you have taken of baby so far while crying – wash laundry – fold growing mound of laundry on guest bed – sweep up mountains of dog hair in kitchen – pay attention to actual dog, who is still a living creature you’re committed to caring for, remember? – work on some creative project or household organization endeavor that you feel suddenly totally compelled and equipped to embark on – research diaper rash/colors of healthy baby poop – shop online for fancy nursing clothes, sandals, or non-maternity jeans you can’t afford – etc. etc. etc.
  13. Go get crying, awake baby
  14. Spend next 1-5 hours cursing self for choosing incorrectly
  15. Repeat.
