I realize I haven’t written a substantive post in quite a while now. That really is a problem.
I write because I want to write, because I like to write, and because it is cathartic for me to get my thoughts out of my head. Really, that is why so many of my entries take place at 2 am; those are the times that I can’t get to sleep because of everything floating around upstairs.
I have so many revelations about being a parent. I have so many great thoughts that I want to share. There is nothing like doing what I am doing now. In the past, I once told myself that I think if I could be a mom, and never achieve any of my other goals, I would still be satisfied. I’m fairly certain now that I was right.
Ronan has opened up a whole new world to me. Everything I look at, I see so differently than I did before. Even just little things, like talking on the phone with my mom – I realize now how much that probably means to her. The respect I have for both of my parents has increased a thousand-fold. This truly is the hardest job in the world. I love every minute of it.
