I must have missed the chapter in the parenting book where the pregnant lady walks loops around the house whilst responding “no” to a barrage of phone calls & texts. While the past nine months have felt like a decade, the past week has felt like a century. It’s like riding a yoga ball to the highest crest of the roller coaster and then stopping there to bounce for infinity. At any moment, a switch could flip, and we’ll go gyrating off into parenthood like a huge inflatable pinball. In the meantime, I guess we’ll watch all eleven Star Wars movies and the entire “How I Met Your Mother” series; all while Ashley eats a rainbow collection of Larabars, all the spicy food she can find, and a whole pineapple—bouncing. What started out as a meme has effectively become our new mode of being. Everyone says just wait—but nobody warned us about the wait.
You guys are going to be experts at just waiting.
Wow, can’t believe you posted this and then we had Miles pretty much right after!
