I’m not sure how it happened…. the last 3 weeks of pregnancy lasted for what seemed like eternity and now the first three weeks of baby life has flown by like the blink of an eye.
Life with three kids is changing me. Life has a new pace, a “hurry up and wait”, a “hurry up and slow down,” pace. I have all the time in the world and not enough time for anything. I’ve had approximately 1 (completed) phone conversation in the last 3 weeks and I have a whole “pile” of drafted, unfinished, emails that I don’t think I’ll ever complete.
We’re settling into a bit of a routine, although I’m quickly remembering how having a newborn means plans are always subject to change. A trip to the grocery store can be postponed for the sake of a hungry baby- even if the rest of the crew is loaded up and ready to go. Grocery shopping can quickly come to an end if the littlest person in our crew decides he hates the grocery store. We gladly bend to his needs- that’s what I’m trying to say.
And, in the midst of our new routine, the time comes when we (I) have a break– that pile of emails and the phone calls and the unfinished projects are trumped by one precious five letter word….
