The only things I have had to do in the last week are heal and feed Isaac. I have been doing little bits of this and that when my mom and husband allow me, but really everything has been taken care of. I have not even steeped my own tea. Every time I go into the kitchen I cannot find a dirty dish. That room is sparkling. My mom is incredible and I keep telling her she should be a professional doula.
But after a time, a girl needs a little project. A small, 10 minute affair that doesn't really have to do with babies or healing. Something that will be fun to do, and tasty in the end. So yesterday, while my boys slept, I made a coffeecake.
Now, let me be clear here. When I walked into the kitchen to make the cake my mom had gotten out the things I would need. And she washed the dishes afterwards. Nevertheless, I still had that feeling of: "look what I can do!" "I made a coffeecake!" Even though it was quite a supported affair, it still made me feel a little bit like me. And I like that.
And...just because it's fun:
This is a week's worth of Isaac's wipes. Clean and folded.
