I always said that I'd never be one of those women that had seemingly forgotten what it was like to be sleep deprived MomE of young babes. But, yesterday I was confronted by my own selfishness. One of my dearests is currently slogging through the trenches and my initial reaction was to think "seriously, get over it...we've all been there...welcome to motherhood...buck up, girlfriend!" So glad I didn't say that out loud!
It really shocked my socks. I have no doubts that she will weather this hazy valley with flying colors...but right now it wouldn't be helpful or encouraging to point out that she should be enjoying each little moment. Oui, that has to be one of the MOST annoying things that people say when you are looney tired out of your gourd. I mean, you know it's true...and it really IS...you miss those soft babies when they grow into
Personally, I can do with some baby holdin' time any old day...especially when I can catergorize it under ministry and encouragement. Hehehe!
