Since Emily was born I can count on one hand the amount of times that I have had a morning go as planned. And guess what? Today was one of those mornings! I know it will probably not happen again for a very long time, so I figured I would celebrate by writing here.
By 9:30am I was able to accomplish everything I set out to do. I nursed Emily, we played, I fed her cereal and fruit for breakfast. Then I took a shower, and got her down for a nap (this one was huge!). Since it’s Sunday and my husband is home I was also able to bring Romeo (my Rhodesian Ridgeback and first baby) out for a walk, just us two. I’m pretty sure Romeo appreciated some alone time with is mama. Afterwards, I went out to get wrapping paper and a card for my sweet niece’s birthday party today. And to top of this chain of events, Emmy was still sleeping when I got home so I was able to write! I seriously feel like a superhero.
Even though all these things seem small, I feel so accomplished. I bet you others moms and dads out there can relate. It’s the little things right?
Side Note: I probably just jinxed myself by writing this. A morning like this may not happen again!
