What She Wore: grey running pants, purple t-shirt that says "I Love NOLA"
My brother reminded me to update this place. I’ve been spending a lot of time on Midnight feedings, sneaking in naps here and there, and doing online research on Charlie issues. I’ve found some great blogs out there from parents going through the same things, and that’s been a real reassurance. Ain’t the internet great?
Last night the Hub and I went out to dinner while his mother watched Charlie. The Hub pointed out that I smiled. Slowly but surely, the Hub and I are figuring out a new version of normalcy. Having children will always change you–Charlie just comes with his own special bag of craziness. And I had a realization–I’m going to be OK. I will cry. I will be angry. I will have days where I don’t think I can do this. But I will be OK. I will laugh again. And smile. I’ll be able to watch the Tigers on TV and go out to lunch. My life is not over. True, I have a lot to digest, and my fears about the future are huge, but I know this too–life goes on.
