Parenthood is so wonderfully delicious. But sometimes it can be really bloody hard.
There have been some tough times in our house over the past couple of weeks. Jesse just wasn’t himself much of the time and we were all feeling burned out.
Thankfully, after the appearance of two lovely little molars and some much needed R&R for Mummy and Daddy, things seem to be getting back to normal.
But those hard bits inspired this…
Today I cried. And so did you.
I cried because I didn’t know what was wrong with you, my love. Because I couldn’t take away your pain or even know where it hurt.
I cried because nothing I tried seemed to soothe you.
I cried because for the first time I wanted, needed some time away from you.
I cried because the flutter in my belly reminded me there will soon be another and I worried how I will cope in times like this with two.
Today I cried.
I cried because when you felt better you smiled and laughed and played.
I cried because you cuddled me tight and my heart lightened.
I cried because the flutter in my belly reminded me there will soon be another. Bliss!
I cried. And I smiled.
