Hello old friends. I miss this little blog. But as I'm sure all you Moms out there know, it's just SO. DAMN. HARD. to find time for yourself with a newborn around. (I'm guessing this doesn't change much when the newborn grows up, either...)
Yes, this little lady has occupied quite a lot of my time lately.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining. I absolutely love being her Mom, I feel so blessed to have such a healthy baby girl and that I am able to stay home with her all day. But there are times where I miss a little "me" time. You know what I'm talking about....right?
Like when I asked Greg to take a cute little picture of Gracie and I, because we hadn't gotten one since we left the hospital...and this was the best shot we got.
And then 3 minutes later, this happened:
Oh the glamour of being a Mom! But in all seriousness, it's times like these when I wonder if I'm doing this whole Mama thing right? Am I being the best Mom I can for her? Is she healthy? Is she learning?
Is she happy?
"Being a Mom IS enough."
We may not have all the time in the world to devote to our children. Jobs and spouses and chores and the simple human necessity that I need to eat and shower every day tend to get in the way. But I've come to realize that I shouldn't feel guilty if I want to steal a few minutes here and there for this little blog, for some sewing, for myself. Gracie will still be fed, she'll still be loved, she'll still be happy.
Because I'm her Mom, and that is enough.
