Suck it, Dr. Moustache

by statia on April 16, 2007

I missed the one year anniversary of our failed IVF cycle. What, with being busy with a brand spanking new baby and all. Not that I’m one to dwell in the past, but it’s funny how the past two March’s and April’s were possibly the shittiest in my life. I was in the bad place, in a big way.

And now here we sit, with our Mini Me-ester, who turned my least favorite month of the year, into my favorite.

Being a mother is hard. It’s the hardest thing I’ve ever done, and shit, I’ve only been at it for 6 weeks, and I know it’s not going to get any easier. You can’t put him down, he refuses to sleep at all during the day, unless you’re holding him, and it’s frustrating when he cries just because he feels the need to cry. But when I’m holding him, as I seem to always be, or when we’re playing on the floor and he makes all those funny faces and cute baby noises, it’s completely rewarding. And yes, I suppose this is what those folks call “sap,” but I can’t help but think that he was meant to be born when he was born.

All this is written just so that I can remind myself how rewarding it is, when he’s taken the car without permission, or when he’s decided that he can fly.

you’re sooo a mommy blogger. And I for one am sooo happy for you! I’m glad the next 100 March and April’s will be filled with your beautiful son.

Parenting is rough, but it’s also a pretty cool gig, isn’t it?

When he starts to get bigger, just request a bigger blanket from mama pants. One with buckles and loooong sleeves that go all the way round.

If I lived with you, I’d make you hold me all day, too.

Yep.. sounds like he was born in March to give you a reason to smile during that month every year.

Your March / April is my February. Funny how that just has a way of working itself out in the end, huh?

I’m in the same boat – amazed at how much can change in a year. This time last year I was doing an egg retrival. I prefer the baby retrival.
