One More Time, I'm a New Mama

Life with a newborn and a two-year old toddler is full of...

Love and joy.
Awe, surprise and adoration.
Starting over again.
Nothing the same.
Equally awesome but completely opposite boys.
More confidence this round mixed with some healthy confusion.
Helpful and loving family and friends.
Tiredness and fatigue.
Running on love.
Realizing more every day it's we, not me.
Learning about ourselves and our newly expanded family.
Eating together at a table most meals...
Yes, even if the baby has a boob in the mouth and Mama waits.
Sometimes cereal for dinner.
Messyness and taking time to pick up little by little.
Lots of lists to get crap out of Mama's head.
Surprises and constant change from moment to moment.
What the hell was that noise?
Is this normal?
"What was that?!?!?"
"Hang on, I hear Bodhi..."
Re-defining the word "important".
Letting go and leaning in.
And loving every tired moment that awakens us all a little more.
And more LOVE.
