Good Days

I will hold him when he needs it, let him sleep in my bed, and nurse him as long/much as he wants. I have to take moments to myself and just let him cry, but I don’t want those to be the norm. I want him to know that he is loved and secure and that mom is here when he needs it. So that he has good days too.

I cry because I’m home all day and there’s still dishes and laundry piled up. I cry because I miss my career. I cry because I don’t know this new industry. I cry because I talk to the kid, the dog, the cat, and the TV all day. I cry because my husband gets to go to lunch with his coworkers. I cry because Target feels like a spa day. I cry because I need a spa day.
