There comes a point where I haven’t updated in so long that the sheer volume of everything that’s happened becomes a logjam itself to the act of posting! And it’s true, the last few weeks have felt packed with important events and intense moments that it’s actually easier to bullet point them than attempt to unpack them further. But frankly, they all boil down to two key points:
- I am the proud mother of a lovely baby boy. Without any frame of reference for other babies, I can tell you he’s absolutely perfect and a complete doll. Well, a relative doll. Well, he doesn’t cry any more than other babies and I suspect a lot less than some. But goofs aside, every time I look at him, I feel so lucky to be his mom. Little Bear, in the words of Wendy Cope, I love you and I’m glad I exist.
- On top of learning how to be parents, my husband and I purchased our first house. Now we are learning to be homeowners.
And that’s plenty of lifetime milestones for me for one year, thank you very much! I would appreciate it if life just sat on the back-burner for a little while–looking at you, pandemic.
As my family moves and as we learn to be parents, I will probably post more sporadically than usual. I’m still finding time to write, but it’s a little bit more of a catch-as-catch-can thing. That won’t be the case forever, of course. Sometimes in life, there are other very important things to focus on and that’s wonderful, too.
