Life has been crazy lately. Scratch that. Life is crazy presently. Having Adelaide has been one of the most amazing experiences in my life, but I am still getting use to this and it’s been 10 weeks! I hate having to put my work and my passion on the back burner, but to be honest, it’s been wonderful devoting all of my time to my new baby and my new role as mother to two children. It is true what they say, having two is completely different and there is nothing, I repeat, nothing you can do to prepare yourself. You just hold your breath, close your eyes, and jump. But I’m starting to realize that even though, as a mother, I want to give my all to the wants and needs of my children, I also realize that it is important to give myself a little something too. And so for the past 2 days I have been waking up at 4:30am to nurse Adelaide and once I get her back to sleep instead of rolling over and catching a few more hours, I am getting up, starting the coffee, and sitting down to my computer to do a little bit of writing. It has been amazing. As a mother, it is those precious minutes that make me realize just how grateful I am for the constant noise. I am appreciative that I don’t have much free time to myself. And it makes me thankful that this crazy adventure that I am on called life is really just that, an adventure. So thank you kids for the drive and motivation I needed to continue on my path to putting my book, er, books on lots and lots of bookshelves. During my time ‘away’ I realized that this is what I am supposed to do. This is what all of my hard work is for. And I cannot wait until the day where all this hard work pays off and I can look at my kids and let them know I wouldn’t be here without them.
Excited to see what happens next and super excited about my next novel. So stay tuned!
