Life After Baby
I used to run. I used to read. I used to go out with other teachers after work. Do I miss those things sometimes? Of course, but I know that the day will come when Anna's able to play independently, away from me and not needing constant attention, and I'll look back and miss these days of snuggling, rocking to sleep and baby-wearing. So right now I'll gladly trade in the running gear for sweat pants and burp rags; trade the sappy adult love stories for Dr. Seuss and children's books; and trade girls night out for an early morning snuggle with my little baby. Unfortunately these days are numbered and I plan to cherish them. This is our life now, as a cute little family of three, and I couldn't have asked for anything more perfect.
