Coming Up For Air

I’ve been writing on this site every week day for almost the last 11 years, but I could seriously see that streak being broken soon. I knew that a newborn was a lot of work, but wow, this isn’t what I expected! He’s a great kid and is doing very well, but the goals I have to set for myself each day are TINY. Thankfully Mom and Dad are staying with us for a bit and have been an enormous help keeping the house from falling apart and giving us some breaks so we can get some sleep. I’ve been trying to add up the little bits of sleep that I’ve gotten each night and I can’t figure out how I’m still able to function. But hey, it works and everyone is healthy so I’m not going to complain.
