What a great day this has been! I slept in, my baby took several mini-naps before we were going anywhere. I got laundry dishes AND a few extra things done. Yay.
My muffin loves socializing. She was tired, but she was quiet and cheerful with all the new people who wished to hold and admire her. There were a lot of kids running around, and it was a lot of fun to hang out and visit.
Having a child does seem to narrow my world. And this is a holiday to celebrate independence, right? But pure independence is not possible in this life. I depend on a lot of things. And now, my baby depends entirely on me.
That’s the flip side of independence you know. Not just that I need others than myself, but that I am utterly needed. I have a dependent now. I guess I’ll have to have independence with this little one hanging on.
