An "In the Motherhood" Moment
Seth is 3 weeks old now. It's been harder this time around in that, along with waking up throughout the night to nurse Seth, I also need to get up around 6:30 in the morning and get Maya ready for school and out the door by 7 am. Let's say it's been hard to make myself get out of bed at 6:30. This morning, I pressed snooze 1 too many times and didn't get out of bed until 6:55. Luckily Maya has an alarm clock and was already dressed. I just needed to get her breakfast and lunch taken care of. So, with 2 minutes to get out the door, we look in our pantry. No time for the usual bowl of cereal. She doesn't like the pop tarts we have. The box of granola bars is empty, but still sitting on the pantry shelf. So, we settle on a little baggy of Saltine crackers and her water bottle as a breakfast for her to eat as she walks to the bus stop. I felt so bad. It's time to do a serious run to the grocery store.
