I have a to do list a mile long. I have dishes in the sink, laundry in the dryer, and diapers that need to he stuffed. I need to go to the store for groceries. I need supplies to make a shirt with my daughter for her 100th day of school. And if we’re being completely open and honest, I need to pee!!
It’s an issue many parents have struggled with, being nap tapped. My son is sound asleep across my chest. He’s five months old and in my arms is his favorite place to be. I could place him somewhere else to sleep, he will likely wake up but he could stay asleep. But these days are numbered. He’s my last baby.
One of the saddest things I’ve ever heard is one day you’ll pick your child up and then put them down for the last time and you won’t even know it. Cue all the tears!! I wish I could freeze time and keep him this little a bit longer. He’s grown so fast and I know it won’t be long till he stops falling asleep on my chest.
So for now everything can wait. The dishes will get done eventually, and those will never end. The laundry can pile up, there will always be laundry. And everything else will get done in due time. Right now, in this moment, I’m exactly where I need to be.
