I don't know about you, but since having Chunk, I have found it really difficult to just switch my brain off...ever.
I have gone from being one of the laziest women known to man, to a girl that cannot cope with sitting still for five minutes without scrawling through a mental checklist of things that need to be done.
I think it's because when Chunk was a tiny baby, I quickly got into the habit of using whatever five minute naps he would have to get things done, such as showering, prepping dinner etc, as otherwise he wouldn't allow me to get it done. As he's got older, and more lively, this has carried on, because he now rarely naps at all (sob) so every spare minute is used on doing things I can't do when he's around.
It's turned me into an OCD freak that cannot just switch off, and after two years of this I've decided to try to find ways to get some mummy downtime.
