Today's not-so-favorite moments included . . .
. . . going to the grocery store specifically for a certain thing, then getting home to find that it somehow didn't make it from the cash register to my car. Todd was already down for a nap by the time I made this discovery, so I guess the store just gets to keep it.
Today's favorite moments included . . .
. . . sleeping in until 10:30am (thank you, Mom and Dad, for taking the big kids for the weekend). I felt normal for the first time in days, and it was nice to look in the mirror and see a woman instead of a zombie.
. . . going to the store with Todd. He was content in the sling, and I found that successfully running a few errands made my life feel more normal. I'm still a bit nervous about how things will go when the other three kids come home, but I know I'll figure it out, just like I did the other three times a new baby joined our family.
. . . imbibing the sweetness of tiny baby feet, soft baby hair, a little baby nose (which looks a lot like his brother's), and kissable baby cheeks.
