Two weeks ago today, I was laboring at my kitchen table. Trying to eat the enchiladas that I had just made for dinner. Not knowing that I would be holding my sweet baby girl in my arms 3 1/2 hours later.
Now, I’m sitting here on my couch with a sleeping newborn on my chest. Typing one-handed. Glancing down in awe and wonderment every so often at this beautiful miracle that has overtaken my heart.
In the past two weeks, I’ve accomplished a lot. But not the kind of accomplishments you might think. I haven’t cleaned the house or baked cupcakes (or even left my house for that matter). But:
- I DID have a baby.
- I AM breastfeeding every 2-4 hours through the day and night (despite the pain).
- I HAVE been out on walks in the neighborhood.
That’s sweet success in my book.
Amazingly, our house is pretty clean right now – thanks to my hard-working husband. The floors are mopped. The sheets are freshly laundered. And the dishes are put away.
While I can’t ship my husband off to your house to clean this weekend (Sorry! He’s all mine!), I am going to provide some tips and products to help you in your quest for a clean home this weekend. Stay tuned!
Now I’m just trying to figure out what I’m going to do when my husband goes back to work on Monday…and leaves me alone with two gorgeous little girls…
one who is extremely active and wants to play all day long…
and one who wants to nurse all day long…
