Mama guilt hit me full force, when I realized that so many of Luke's milestones were documented carefully on our blog. I think I have posted TWICE in the seven months since Miss Maggie joined our family. Boo! That makes me upset that Maggie's adventures have not been as carefully outlined as those of her brother.
But after some thought, I understand that Maggie joined a very different family than Luke did. Maggie was born into a real, true, busy, and happy family. A family that has lots of time to spend together, but not so much time to write about our family life. And that's okay.
I would like to write more often, and I will try to do so at least every week or two. But NO MORE GUILT! I don't want to live that way, and I don't want my kiddos to live under the chains of guilt either.
Maggie will not remember these seven months when she is grown. She will not know that getting the balance right was awfully difficult. She will not remember that she nursed through the night, every night, for all these months. But I think she will understand that two little ones under the age of two was busy for her mama, and she will understand that documenting milestones for her brother was possible because I wasn't busy caring for and playing with her at that time. My blogging time has been funneled to my Maggie time - and I wouldn't have it any other way! What a sweet and happy girl she is! I love to play with her, and watch her grow and explore this world of ours.
So I hope I'm back in the blogosphere, even if my posts are short, and not well-edited.
And as a little treat, check out this face. Way too cute!
