One of the ways I describe approaching the immediate post-partum period is to think of it as a “babymoon,” focused on connecting as a family and letting the normal minutiae fall away for a bit. I think maybe I can let myself be in a COVIDmoon for a little longer.
It’s probably not the best mental attitude to have, but I always worry when things are fairly stable in our lives and going relatively smoothly. Why? Because I know “opportunities for growth” are just around the corner. Take July, for example….
I was surprised to find myself teary-eyed. I was teary-eyed because it was just all so normal. We are emerging from the “long dark” blinking into the sunlight because all at once (it seems), it burst forth. Just like all dark times, eventually, they fade and the sun shines again.
