Today Fox had to change to a different afterschool program and ride a bus for the very first time.

He was so nervous all weekend, but when I picked him up he asked if he could ride the school bus tomorrow and cheered when I said yes ;)

And just when I'm thinking he's so mature now, he crawls into my lap on the rocking chair and starts singing a little song he made up that basically went, "I love my mommy. Mommy I love you..." Until I sang back to him and his eyes suddenly closed and he fell asleep in my lap.

This was around two hours ago, so I guess he did have a stressful day. I'm going to follow him to bed now as well.

Sometimes, you think "Maybe life would be easier without children..." and then they remind you that it wouldn't be WORTH living without them :)

I don't have great maternity leave. I don't have all the time I want with my child. But we have a roof over our head, enough food and water that I don't have to wonder if my child will survive the next weeks and I think of what women in Haiti and so many other places are going through, at the very moment - and I realize I am so, so blessed.

Well, no, it isn't necessarily, and yes, it can be, but it's lovely that you're enjoying your son and it's very important to count our blessings, whatever form they take. :)

Hmmm... I should have worded it differently, huh? I was feeling all universal and sentimental ;)

I guess I should have said that for me, life wouldn't be worth living without this child. I hope I feel the same way about the one on the way as well...

It's like after you meet the person you love and you can't imagine existing without them. I know he'll grow up and be gone someday, but for now - I just adore him!

Don't worry, it's your journal and your perspective, you shouldn't need to censor yourself. I understand. ;)

I'm sure you will feel the same - or different but just as good. Enjoy. :)
