On Laziness. And Newborns.
Guess its time to dust this old blog off. I am so lazy. I was pregnant for 9 whole months and didn't blog about it once. And now I have a three month old child. I believe that for the past three months I shall be excused for my laziness. It wasn't that I didn't have time! I just didn't have inclination. Sigh. Being a parent to a newborn sucks balls. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. I don't know how people have more than one child. My grandmother had eight! I couldn't do it. She was a much, much better person than I am. A saint. Newborns are difficult. Taking care of one has been the most difficult and the most boring thing that I have ever done. I have made so many friends with games on Facebook in the past few months. And I still can't distinguish between my baby's cries. Are you hungry? (give nipple...), no? Are you wet? (check diaper...), no? Are you tired? (Swaddle yowling child and place on bouncy chair...), no? etc, etc. Sometimes nothing works and I start over. Eventually one of them is right and then, back to my Facebook games if she's sleeping, and back to waving a toy over her face if she wants to play.
