it’s all a lie

when i was pregnant, every mother in the world decided to impart their infinite baby wisdom to me. number one on the YOU MUST DO list was:

rest now! when baby comes, you will never ever ever sleep again!

i’m here to tell you they’re lying. that, or the after-effects of child rearing have made the details of early days seem fuzzy. because my days are full of a whole lot of nothing.

sure, i feed, change, play, cuddle and baby talk with s a million times a day, but in between there is tons of time for my brain to wither away with the help of television and the internet. so much so that i’ve started to think that the cast of teen mom are my bffs, the house i dream of on pinterest will someday be mine, and that the odds will ever be in my favor. (hunger games reference; if you haven’t read these books, you’re living under a rock. go now: )

i’m sure someday i will miss these nothing days, but for now this is all i can think about:

mmm, tequila.

  1. Maybe it’s that you can’t choose when you sleep (or do anything else for that matter. If you were all about sleeping in short increments every two hours then yes there is plenty of time for that!

    • i agree, bryn. cat-napping has never been my strong suit, either! i know that i’m lucky because s sleeps a lot at night, so i’m more with it during the day than lots of new moms.
