Where has the time gone?
It seems like just a few weeks ago I was telling you guys that we were expecting. Then, it felt like two days later when we found out we were having a little girl.
Well, it’s definitely been longer than just a few weeks. Look at me now!
We have, at most, four more weeks until our precious daughter is going to make her arrival. I know this because she has a pending eviction date of August 15th, if she’s not already here by then.
I know projects have been scarce as of late, but I know that most of you guys understand what I’m going through. I’m still feeling great physically, but chores such as, oh, bending over to pick something up off the floor and standing for too long just exhaust me. My glue gun is feeling very unloved right now, and I’m not sure I even remember how to operate a can of spray paint!
However, at the core of my being, I’m definitely struggling with the concept of being a mother of two. Zack has gotten our undivided attention for 4 1/2 years now, and that’s all about to change. He is undeniably excited about having a baby sister, but I don’t think he fully understands how is life is going to be turned upside down. Obviously, we aren’t the first family that’s experienced this feeling – I’m sure everyone goes through it, and we’ll get through it, too.
Just this morning, I started crying when thinking about it, and Zack and I had this conversation:
Zack: Why are you crying, Mama?
Me: Because I love you so much, and I’m scared about being a Mama to two babies.
Zack: It’s okay, Mama. When Baby Emma gets here, you can take care of her and I will take care of you.
Cue the water works, again. How did I get so lucky to have a little boy as great as Zack?
It gets easier, right? Someone please tell me yes. 🙂
