I am home.

The internet and computer access was a little spotty where I was and I didn't want my family to know about my blog, so I couldn't write.  Besides the fact that I was busy watching a toddler and a newborn, and cooking and cleaning a bit to help my sister, so that didn't give me too much free time.  But I am home now, and I appreciated all of your comments and words of encouragement.

I realized I can do this.  Someday I will be a great mother.  I was able to juggle nap times, feedings, diaper changes (without gloves--yikes), mild meltdowns, play time, cooking and cleaning.  Granted I wasn't as sleep deprived or hormonal as I might be if I had been the one who gave birth, and I wasn't doing it alone, but I realized that I when that day comes, I just might be a pretty good mom.

And that was something to smile and cheer about.


  1. Welcome back to the blog!! Delighted you feel better and hopeful again. Love, Fran

  2. Way to go! I hope someday comes soon for you - you will be a wonderful mom!

  3. Thinking of you!

  4. Good to have you back and even better to hear you upbeat on the mommy front!!!

  5. I think you'll be an even more amazing mom because not one second of parenting will be taken for granted. I know that feels true for me with my son...even after 10 years
