The new normal

We're slowly adjusting and trying to get used to a new version of "normal". Some things that may never go back to the old normal are:
  1. Swaying. All the time. I do it in the shower, in the middle of the night, when I'm standing in front of the fridge looking for something to eat (sorry mom, I still do that), while I'm blow drying my hair, and the Wii fit thinks there's something wrong with my balancing skills. The Wii Fit also thinks I'm ".....incredible! you met your goal before your deadline!" and thinks my body is only 20 years old. She knows nothing.
  2. Playing with my boobs. I'm not even going to start on how many hours a day I spend massaging, rubbing, squeezing, and pinching my boobs. Let's just say they haven't seen this much action since....ever.
  3. Time of day = number of feedings. I can tell you what time of day it is by how many times I've fed the child. I also count through the long nights in feedings. "OK, just 2 more feedings until Josh will wake up and help me." and "1 feeding before bedtime." are common thoughts in my head.
  4. Sitting the back seat. I honestly think that before Thomas was born I'd never sat in the backseat of the car before. Since he was born I haven't sat in the front. Update: I sat in front yesterday. I hated it. Will I ever get over this? What will I do when Josh is gone and I have to drive the car instead of watch Thomas sit in his carseat just in case he needs something. I suppose I'll learn - but only because I HAVE to.
  5. One-handedness. I can do almost anything with 1 hand. I'm more talented than I ever knew.

  1. Yup, that's the new "normal" you'll have to live with for awhile. I LOVE the swaying. Wait until you go to the store WITHOUT baby Thomas and another baby starts crying, then you'll start swaying too.

    BTW: driving down the road with a crying baby in the back seat is ROUGH! But as long as he's crying you know he's still alive :-) It's hard but you will both make it though.
