Oh, Baby!


baby  Do you ever feel like a substandard parent when you see some of the things other parents are doing? Yep, me neither. I do however think wow, you must have a lot more patience, money and time on your hands than I do.  I started out with great intentions with my first child. With my second, I faced reality and haven’t even tried to kid myself. I know they say these are the precious moments and we should cherish them. And don’t get me wrong, I do. But I can’t capture every single moment on video or make every single thing I see on Pinterest. My daughter is going to be 11 years old in a couple of days and I still haven’t finished her baby book. I guess finish is an inaccurate word. I haven’t even STARTED it yet. I purchased it. I think it has a sonogram photo in it and then… Well things come up, you know?

I see all kinds of cutsie ideas. Dipping the baby’s feet or hands in paint and making some kind of keepsake, making a quilt out of their first outfits, writing poems, having professional photography done, having the baby shoes bronzed, making shadow boxes and on and on. They are great ideas. But, I haven’t slept in two years and some days it is all I can do to get dressed and remember my name. Thank goodness for digital photography. I DO have proof that we did some pretty cool stuff together and had many precious moments.
