It’s been over two weeks since my last post. Feels more like twelve. I’m still trying to find my groove. Taking care of a baby around the clock is much harder than I remember. Max is nothing like Mia was.
Turns out, Max isn’t much of a sleeper. He sucks down four onces every two hours and usually wants more. His appetite is insatiable and he doesn’t much like to be put down either. Sleep deprivation is a bitch. Allow me to elaborate……
This morning I poured milk into a bottle that did not have a liner in it. Awesome
Yesterday I poured coffee in Mia’s sippee cup. Even more awesome. She gagged something aweful and looked at me like I had lost my damn mind. I assured her I had in fact lost my mind, and she proceeded to give me go-to-hell looks the remainder of the morning.
The other day, I was sitting at an intersection in Amarillo and watched the light go from red to green and back to red again without moving.
Not a very popular move it turns out to sit through a green light in mid-day traffic.
This semi catatonic state has got to end before somebody gets hurt.
Sweet Jesus I need some sleep.
Max is almost 7 weeks old, and we’ve been home 5 of those weeks. He is healthy and happy, and I am head over heals in love with him. Every day that goes by I pray for patience and some sort of continuity. Some days have harmony. Most don’t, but I am so grateful.
I did my first 5k ever this month. 6 weeks after a c-section no less.
I walked it.
I about died.
I need my head checked.
I need a tan. (Not as bad as Troy however, whose legs are cropped intentionally) You’re welcome Troy.
I need Uncle Jason around more often….
I need to bake with Mia more often……and leave the dishes for later……
Love more often…….
I recently stumbled upon this quote….I need to read it aloud every morning.
Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough & more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos into order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace to today & creates a vision for tomorrow.
Most of all I am grateful that kids survive mothers like me.
