makes me happy.
It has been my experience that life with a newborn requires one to accept the fact that certain things which used to get accomplished and tended to on a regular basis now... will not.
Simple things like sweeping the kitchen floor, which used to get done everyday now... does not.
Or as my friend Marla would say, "You lower your standards and then you don't even realize those lowered standards - it feels brutal."
So you know what I did this week?
Lived in the moment. Kept my mind focused on the joy of holding a baby, the peace of reading books to the Byrd, and the pleasure of hearing their laughs and eating dinner all together.
And you know how that all felt?
Exactly the opposite of brutal.
