need to hibernate…

October 1, 2008

There are times when I wish my kids had cell phones so I could call them on the way to school and say, “Ughh…I’m sorry I was such an ass this morning.” Like I do with my husband. I just sent Jack off for the day almost crying over Jack just being Jackie-boy.

Slow, incredibly slow, blissfully unaware, totally living and engaged in the very second he is in…all the things that make me a little crazy at times are the same things that make him one of the dearest souls on the planet.

I clearly need to get back in bed and sleep with a baby. So I shall…

and if you are one of my dear friends/family that I feel horrible about not connecting with right now, please know it is not indicative of my love for you. I can’t turn my brain off to stop thinking about you and feel like a loser for not calling so I finally turned my phone off yesterday as Jorge had told me to do for the 5,000th time. I’m really trying to actually hibernate (even in my head). Hope to resurface sometime next week…peace until then.

    Oh boy. Been there, done that on more than one occasion. It happens, even more so when we’re tired. Give yourself a free pass today. Hibernate. We’ll be here when you get back. 😉

    I hope you can continue to give yourself permission to just be – with your new girl, with Jorge and the other kids, and with yourself.

    I can say without hesitation that I’m sure everyone understands that you need to be doing exactly what you are doing right now.

    Love to all of you.

    You need to hibernate! Don’t ever “feel horrible” for doing just what you are supposed to be doing…taking care of you, and Lyra. Remember, historically speaking, after women gave birth they stayed away from everyone for awhile. They were taken care of and brought every meal. It is a shame birth is not handled the same way today because it should be. You are a supersister, superfriend, superwife, and a supermom, but you are not invincible. 🙂 Love you!

    After Skye was born, I think I stayed “in, on or around” the nest bed for the first 3 weeks. I enjoyed my meals upstairs, napped often and felt the fresh air coming in through my windows. I cringed any time the phone would ring and I just wanted that time with my baby, my 2 other baby’s and my man. Your friends love you & understand that you need to nest – don’t worry about resurfacing until you’re good & ready.

    sleep sleep sleep.
    rest rest rest.
    the universe is sending angels to be everywhere you can’t be right now and everything is truly, deeply well.
