Have showers ever felt so fantastic?
Has my chest EVER been this big?
Has my bed ever felt so delicious?
Have I started working out yet? (Only a bit of yoga and walking).
Have I ever been more happy about weight gain (hers, not mine )?
Have I ever been more excited about bodily functions?
Have I ever been so obsessed with somebody’s feet?
Have I ever wanted to care for my family and home this much?
Have I enjoyed every baby this much?
I’m sure I have. But, man, am I sure glad to be able to do it all again.
At Roxie’s two week appointment, the doctor asked me if things were “back to normal” around our house. I pried my eyes off this beauty queen, looked at him and said, “No. Not even close.”
Things will never be the same. Life is better, so much better, with this little one as a new part of it.
Tired? Exhausting? Stressful? Emotional? Of course.
But, with the arrival of my new love I been reminded once again of my purpose, focus, and direction in my life: to be a mother.
I’ll be on a bit of a blogging break for the time being.
Foxy Roxie and I are still getting to know each other.
