Ever since C was born, I’ve had people coming up to me telling me “you have it all together, you amaze me with your patience, etc…” I think these people are C.R.A.Z.Y. Honestly, I’m not sure who they are talking to or about. I sure hope you know that I’m very much a work in progress. I don’t have it together, I make mistakes, and half the time, I feel like I’m just barely keeping my head above water when it comes to parenting and managing our family.
But just in case you ever do think that I’ve got it together even half the time, let me introduce you to Mt. Washmore. You aren’t the only one! I manage to wash the laundry, but have piles of clothes folded to put away (I hate that part).
At this phase of my life, I’m just gonna hold my baby because I can. Because all too soon she will be busting out of the Moby Wrap, on stable, sturdy feet of her own, running in the opposite direction, away from me. So right now, I’m gonna snuggle up to her and feel her baby soft skin against my own. Especially this one. I’m realizing, having a baby is the easiest part of parenting. She only cries, and I meet her needs quickly. She smiles and coos. It’s not until she gets older that she will test my patience, talk back, and disobey. Right now, she’s just this bundle of sweetness. And I’m no Michelle Duggar, so I know eventually I will run out of babies, which is even more reason why I have to enjoy her NOW.
