I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of my wonderful friends and family (especially Jonathan!) for all of your love and support and prayers this past week. This has been a very emotional, stressful time for me. The Lion was very good last night, and I am holding my breath that he will be okay today, too.
One of the hardest parts has been admitting that I feel overwhelmed. There is such immense pressure on moms, I think, to appear as if they really, really have their s**t together--that they are composed, organized, multi-tasking wonderwomen--and I have to admit: I am none of the above right now!
If I could remember to put the cap back on the milk before sticking it back in the fridge, I would feel like I was in control again. If I could just comfort this one screaming baby I would feel like I could conquer the world.
