Thank you everyone for your kind words. I’ve been feeling much better lately. It’s just hard when it feels like I’m choosing the baby over Olivia, although I know that’s not the case. Thankfully, the #1 thing Olivia likes to do is stay home and have me tell her stories. That is something I’m able to do. The trick is staying awake by the time you’ve told of her pretend hamsters, Hollow and Bolo, and their 10th adventure.
Every night, the three of us talk about our favorite part of the day. Tonight when Olivia said, “And my 8th favorite part of the day was. . .” I was overjoyed. I guess her day wasn’t so boring after all.
