Simple Pleasures, Simple Days, Simple Times

Having a baby has really made me slow down and fall apart a little. I have had to not worry about cleaning as much. I am forgetting more than I am remembering. I am behind on the blog. I am behind making appointments. I am behind returning calls. In fact you should be happy if I remember you even called in the first place. I am so unlike me right now but I am also so happy in the simplicity. I am not beating myself up for getting behind. I am not worried about the dust bunnies in the corner (that would normally drive me nuts). Instead I am totally and completely wrapped up in my Little Cricket.

This coming apart at the seams. A scrubbing off my normal attempt to stay more on top of things has been both a blessing and a curse. On one hand it has let some things that were important to me slip away. Things that require more energy and focus than I have to give. But on the other hand it has allowed me to focus on what needs to be focused on most.

Most of this becoming a new mother thing has been pretty easy. Mostly because I think I was prepared. But no matter how prepared I feel, no matter how good of a baby my Little Cricket is, there have still been some very large changes and hurdles that any new mother deals with.

So for now I am taking it one day at a time. I am enjoying the simpler things in life. I am trying not to push myself too hard or too fast. Because after all what is more important than to be true and real in this moment.

Today it was a picnic in the park with some of my two very favorite people; my Little Cricket and Mrs. Dancer. And it was a great lazy day where nothing on my to-do list actually got done. And it was ok.
