it's really hard being a stay-at-home mama. don't get me wrong, i'm so grateful to be the one raising my daughter, since there are so many mom's that don't get that option. but it's Hard, capital h.
the hard part for me is that jeff comes home around 8:45ish. isn't that late? i usually shut off as mom A LOT earlier than that. i have to do sofia's bedtime routine alone. i know i'm only 5 month pregnant...but sofia almost weighs 26 pounds. try lifting that just to wash hands, or brush teeth.
the other night it was 7 pm and sofia was doing her usual "take all the dvd's out of their spots and spread em everywhere" routine, when there was a knock at the door. it was Tia Ash. sofia's only auntie in provo. she was only dropping off a tupperware i had let her borrow, and ended up staying over an hour and doing the following:
- entertaining my daughter, including running around with her and dancing
- changing her diaper 2x (POOP diapers), yes she pooped twice in an hour
- and while i was putting sofia down, washed my dishes
i know my family would do so much for me if they could. just like i would for them.
