But there were some things that I just hadn't thought about or expected. For all you working moms out there, my hat is off to you. I had no idea what a tough job it is. First of all, there are just so many things on the to-do list and not so much time to do it all. Count in being completely exhausted after being at work and that equals a dirty house and lots of piled up laundry. Then, there's the fact that you have to be away from your child all day long! And for me, that was the worst part. I'm away from Liam all day, then he only stays awake for a few hours after I get home. That makes me really sad! I don't think that I really ever understood the extent of "mommy love" until Liam. It's intense!
With all those complaints, I have to say that I am also extremely lucky to have a wonderful husband, who is also a fantastic father. Kurt has been staying home with Liam all week. I think it was a bit of an adjustment for the first day or two, but he caught on really quickly! Somehow, he has morphed into Mr. SuperMom! When I come home in the afternoons, I'm shocked at what he accomplishes in a day. Yesterday, he even made my breakfast and my lunch. Am I spoiled, or what?! On Monday, Kurt will have to take Liam to the doctor for his 2 month check-up. Lots of moms would be worried about that, thinking that the dad wouldn't be able to answer all the questions, or deal with the crying, grumpy baby after he's had his shots. Not me. Kurt has got it under control! At least somebody around here does...haha
For your viewing pleasure, here is a video of Liam doing tummy time. He's 10 weeks old now. Can you believe it?!
