Right now I’m laying in bed next to my sleeping toddler and watching Sleepless in Seattle as he snores. I love moments like these. These pinch me moments when I just can’t believe I am a mom. But not just any mom, his mom.
I love knowing that when he wakes up in the middle of the night he’ll sit up in bed, his hair sticking up all over the place, and he’ll reach for me to soothe him back to sleep.
David is out of town for three days which means I am on my own with Judah for three days. I’m not intimidated by the responsibility. But we just finished our first full day without any help from him and though it went really well I am absolutely exhausted. It’s usually the very end of the day, around dinner time, when I start to lose steam. I’m ready for him to come home and play with Judah and help me give him a bath while I make dinner and do the dishes. But tonight I made dinner, fed Judah dinner, picked up the pieces of his dinner that he threw on the floor, did the dishes, gave him a bath, got him ready for bed, snuggled and nursed him to sleep, and then collapsed in front of a classic Nora Ephron movie. 😉
This mama gig is the most exhausting thing I’ve ever done and I love it so much!
I’m going to finish my movie and go to sleep! Over and out!
