Happy one week birthday to Gabriel today! How the time is flying!
I feel like there’s an invisible hypnotist chanting “you’re getting veeeeery sleepy” into my ear all day (and all night) these days. I know, I know, “sleep when the baby sleeps” and all of that. Michael’s making me work on it. 🙂
Well, mom is leaving tomorrow and I’m kind of freaking out.
Too bad I can’t make up an excuse to ask her to stay. I’m too good of a daughter. Dad called me today and all but begged me to let Mom go home tomorrow at any cost. He told me to “hide the baby in the nearest cabbage patch” so that Mom would be able to leave. I can tell he misses her a lot and that’s why I’m not planning on staging an Overdramatic New Mom Breakdown tomorrow morning to make her stay.
Wish I could though.
If only because I haven’t had to cook, clean, or do dishes or laundry in five days. If only because ‘ll be all by myself with a person with the power to wake me up with the tiniest “mew” sound possible in the spectrum of sound.
Lord, wrap me in peace and confidence. Help me to treasure these moments of my life. Help me to let these experiences mold me a little more into the woman you created me to be.
