This parenting stuff is not for the faint of heart. I mean, seriously… It’s not easy.
I often joke about first time moms… They blog and post on facebook about each coo and flip and life is sunshine and roses. They have no clue what they’re in for!
And then there are the families at the zoo, Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma and Auntie all there with one little one who can barely toddle–rookies!
I haven’t posted about this because, well, frankly, it makes me sad. My little Bean has been gone for over a week now. She’s visiting Grandpa & Grandma. And she’s having a great time. But, it’s not been easy on me. I miss her snuggles and cuddles and fits. It’s very quiet without her here. I feel like I have to explain her absence. And I feel like a little piece of me is out there on her own.
The good news is that, I can handle it. I dove head-first into this whole parenting thing (holding hand with Brian, though) only a few years ago. And we’ve seen & done so much!
So, I’m holding up. And will continue to do so.
I’ve also gotten a lot of cleaning and organzing done. Without my “helper” I seem to get things done quicker.
Love you my little Bean!
