The rush is gone

Now what?

One of the great things about having a natural childbirth is that you get a crazy amount of endorphins that make you feel on top of the world.

I can officially say that after two wonderful, blissful weeks I've left that mountaintop and am quickly coming face to face with reality.

Dear hubby is back to work. Dirty bathrooms, mounds of laundry, sticky floors, overflowing trash cans and a kitchen sink of piled up dishes are all I see.

Funny, this is the normal life that I don't mind tackling at all. But now I am tired, hormonal, grumpy and feel pulled in ten different directions by the kids and feel that everything is being half done.

I really had forgotten the toll that having a baby takes on a body even in the best of scenarios.

The babymoon is waning.

That made me laugh! Thanks. Love the "crap" at the end. That is so real and so me right now, even though mine aren't here yet!

eek! Honesty is what this blogging thing should be about, right? I say a prayer for you before I'm too overwhelmed with my own new realities to remember to.
