Well, it's official - you guys sure know how to make a gal feel good. Thank you!
I probably shouldn't share my secrets and just leave you thinking that I'm completely amazing but what's a blog for if not for over-sharing, right? So, here are the reasons that I was able to get any sewing done in the two weeks after C was born.
1) We were really fortunate to have a lot of family help in the week after little baby C was born and that help allowed me to sneak a little sewing in here and there. An extra special thank you to my parents who watched O while we were at the hospital and for two days afterwards and a big hug to my mom who left the most delicious shrimp creole at my house for us to eat. Just how good was it? Well, I ate it for five consecutive meals - including breakfast - and I think I may have cried when it was gone. And a super big thank you to my sister who took O for a cousin sleepover party and then didn't even complain when O threw up at her house in the middle of the night. Thank you!
2) In addition to having family around to help, Ben's taken three weeks off of work and so he's still at home and helping out a ton. God help me when he has to go back to work!
3) On top of that, we're still sending O to the babysitter's house two days a week to maintain some consistency with her routine during this crazy time.
So you see, I'm not such an amazing person...I just have amazing people around me.
