I knew having a baby would change things. But I didn’t know how exactly, or how much. Well, now I do, and it’s time to try and get back into the swing of things.
So this means it’s all back to normal? Nope. Is it at least stable and routine? Nope too. It’s taken me a while to realize this, but not only is every baby unique, but some babies, mine included, are uniquely random. He’s sort of predictable. But there’s no point waiting until he has a routine for me to renew my old occupations. It’s not about to happen. 4/5 days he’s timely, then he has a bad one. But I finally feel confident that I can roll with this.
Everything else slowly fell into place, and I relearned how to take care of everything that matters: first Jon, then housework, the pets, cooking, my little projects, socializing. So it’s time to renew writing, blogging and art. And in a few months, paid work and gardening. All with a helpless little human strapped to me. It’s not the same. But it’s something you figure out as you go along.
I’m back everybody. 😀
PS: Babies aren’t expensive. Yet to see about toddlers, but doubt they are either. 😛
