Except, they don’t seem so ‘blue’.
I’ve been experiencing the emotional roller coaster that goes along with having a baby, but it hasn’t really made me sad. It’s made me cry a lot. Mostly I’ll look at my beautiful family, and just cry because they’re all incredible. I have this fantastic husband who is so sweet and thoughtful, and who just loves me so much–even when I’m not so lovable. I have my little boy who is growing up to be such a cool little kid. And I have my beautiful daughter who is just precious beyond words.
I did have some rough days, but those were mostly due to the pain of initiating breastfeeding again, I think. In any case, I am glad that I haven’t had to deal with anything more serious than it has been, and even though I have to restrict my reading to non-emotional suspense novels, and will cry at the slightest provocation, I know that it is so much worse and harder for others.
