Sometimes I have so many things in my mind, random things, that I wish I could just dump some of it off.
Because I’ll lose the thought. Completely. Poof. POOF! Like it never even happened. They call that “mom brain.” Like, I was thinking of SO MANY THINGS AT ONCE that my mind was like, “Yo, some of this has GOT to go.”
So, here I came, onto this journal/blog whatever thing and I had a plan. OK? I was going to write something thoughtful, clever, witty… and then my daughter sat in my lap with her tablet, and said, “I got a pillow for you, mom.”
SO, to recap, my daughter put a pillow behind my back, to make sure I was comfortable, then sat in my lap with her tablet. What an acts of service and quality time type of baby is she?!
So, yes, I completely lost my train of thought on whatever genius parenting, having kids sort of ideas I wanted to let out of my brain. Because of how freaking cute that moment was.
But, I guess that’s what it’s like to be a parent. You’re trying to survive off of five milliseconds of sleep, and you have to decide what to do with the brainpower you do have.
But, I don’t like to focus on that, because, to be honest, that’s a huge con to having kids. Like, if you thought you were not sleeping before children, then prepare for a huge surprise.
But, my kids are so awesome that it’s easy for me to forget that I’m tired. Also, coffee.
What I’m trying to say is that- if you want children, and I mean, without a doubt in your mind, then I hope it happens for you. Because kids, in the right hands, are the most magical thing that can ever happen to someone. Not that I wish any ill will toward anyone else but think about it. When you love someone SO MUCH that you’re willing to never sleep again just to see what a little version of the two of you would be like. That’s pretty cool.
Anyway, to the sleepy but happy parents out there:
Cheers. Good luck. God speed. You got this. Run your own race today.
