My girls are both asleep.
Can you tell?
I’m here, aren’t I?
It won’t be long now, that I’ll hear a cry from either room. Claire, sleeping tucked like a bunny on our bed, or El sleeping in her crib snuggled against a pillow, will soon remind me of my most imminent task of each night and day. The task, er role? … of motherhood.
I don’t mean to make it sound daunting. I love it. I do. Really and truly LOVE LOVE LOVE being a mama.
Especially to these two girls.
Ah but naptime. ME time. I believe I’ve gotten “me” naptime twice now that Claire is here. When maternity leave ends, naptime = busting booty to get work done. Right now, naptime = sweet soul searching me time.
A new season is ahead. I can feel it. Taste it, almost. I can see it and I can’t – all at the same time. But it’s coming. And I’m excited.
