Finally after I finished cooking dinner (one handed) she fell asleep in time for me to gulp down dinner. I really don't like eating like that but I felt like I better hurry because she could stir at any moment. It was the only real meal I had eaten all day. Breakfast was a protein shake and lunch was an apple, popcorn and a couple bites of last nights leftover tofu stir-fry. Not my idea of a balanced diet.
Once she was asleep I was on the phone my mom and she reminded me that there are gonna be moments like that where you don't know what to do as a parent. Sometimes you end up crying right along with them and that's okay. I felt so much peace in hearing her say that. The recognition that someone has been right where you are is comforting. Especially your own mother. Being her first child, I can imagine I gave her lots of those moments. Sorry mom.
