Sometimes you find yourself leaving the house with your family,
with no particular destination in mind, just a desire to be together.
Sometimes you find yourself nursing a baby at Starbucks because hunger can’t wait.
Sometimes you find yourself driving somewhere you’ve never been before
just to get the baby to sleep and daydreaming with your husband
about all the places you will take her some day.
Sometimes you find yourself piling all of the clean laundry on top of the baby because,
let’s face it, that’s a whole lot more fun than actually folding it.
Sometimes you find yourself sitting on the front stoop
when the baby is too tired to nap and you are too tired to entertain her.
You listen to the birds and feel the breeze
and you both are content just being there together.
Sometimes when she finally FINALLY falls asleep after a long day,
the only thing left to do is put up your feet and spend time with an old friend.
And sometimes, you feel like you live a lifetime in one day.
Then you wake up the next day and do it all over again.
