Somehow it’s been an entire (work) week since my last entry. It was hard to keep track of the days that passed in a blur of 2 hour feedings, a crying newborn, a hormonally challenged new mother, and breastfeeding blues. Although it’s been quiet on the blog, things have not been quiet in the Santiago household.
I know many authors are stay at home moms. I have an entirely new respect for all of you. I know how difficult it is to be motivated to write on a regular day. I can’t imagine dealing with a baby, an infant, a toddler… on top of all that. Granted, I’m only 2 weeks into this new adventure and a lot of it is still completely overwhelming. But still. I’d like to be reminded that life will slow down and return to some semblance of normal. Because between the total lack of sleep (I get about 4-5 hours broken up in 1 1/2 hour increments throughout the day) and the emotional wreckage that is making sure you’re doing all you can for your new child, I think I’m worn a little thin.
This all gets better right?
At least its Friday and CBear will be around during the weekend. I’m hoping the extra hand will mean at least an extra hour of sleep for mommy. Cause she’s a cranky bear.
