Hello, Internet. I am back.
Where have I been, you ask?
Oh, I was just busy getting ready for parenthood before giving birth to the cutest baby boy ever. Then we hit the ground running. Breastfeeding, rocking, changing diapers, waking in the middle of the night, teaching, cuddling. It’s been 5 months and I still have not gotten it down pat. I reckon we will never get it down.
There is much I can say about parenting. No, that’s not quite true. There is much I feel and think on parenting; putting them into words is another matter.
This Monday, I finally published my first piece on my new role as a mother. It took weeks to put that essay together. It was hard work working through the fog of baby-obsessed thoughts. But now that that’s finally done and released, I suddenly feel a renewed vigor to write and keep writing.
I won’t promise anything, yet. Just watch this space.
