Mama, this foot won’t stay this small forever, and these tiny hands won’t always need you to hold them 24/7 as they do now. So why not make the most of these slow, gentle moments whilst they’re here.
Sure I have a list as long as my leg of things I ‘need’ to get done and the productive me, the one that loves to get shit done, the me that thrives on connection & hustle & drive, she’d be up, moving & doing already, ticking off her top three ‘to do’s’ for the day! But this morning, I listened in deep to what was actually needed & after the usual 4 hours of sleep I’ve had nightly since Little miss arrived earthside exactly 207 day ago - according to my trusty app! - nothing, literally nothing seemed more pressing than this moment right here [apart from my full bladder & gurgling tummy, but the pelvic floor’s getting stronger & the hunger can wait 💪🏼!]. So I snuggled in & we both savoured that 30minute nap whilst Miss 3 [aka: Cyclone Janni!] headed off to daycare with Dad.
I’ve never been more present, more productive, more exhausted in my life... and damn it feels good.
Different. So very different. But good.
