As you can tell, she loves waking up between mommy and daddy.
Being a working mom (I actually hate that title as much as some stay at home moms crave it), there is a lot that can make me feel guilty when it comes to spending time and caring for my little girl. Like Saturday, when I was exhausted from a hard work week and didn’t want to hold her and just wanted a nap. But there is no reason to focus on the guilt. We do what we are given grace to do. So rather than feel guilty, I can be grateful that Shah took her to another room and I napped on the couch. I got to return the favor for his nap later and enjoyed my time with her after I had slept.
But sometimes, my husband amazes me so much, forget to even feel guilty and I don’t have to make a conscious decision to be grateful.
So this is my husband brag.
Yesterday, while I was busy in meetings, he took her to his annual physical at the doctor’s office. He didn’t actually do this BECAUSE I was in meetings. He never saw any reason for me to take off work and thought it was no big deal. I am hard to impress and I think doing most things with a baby is a piece of cake. But even I was impressed that he had no trouble handling her while getting blood drawn and everything else. He has come a long way in the past 8 months. He used to find leaving the house with her intimidating. Aparently, now, there isn’t anything he can’t do while holding the baby.
