Some things you never understand until you have children.
Some of those “things” bring with it a moment of understanding and humility… sort of like when we left town last week 3 hours after we had planned and I finally forgave my parents for years of late departures with a new found perspective on how the time to accomplish simple tasks is multiplied with a child.
Ashamedly, I have also fallen into the pre-mother camp of not “getting” why those with kids can’t seem to get anything done. Really? Really?
And now I completely understand.
See these feet? They’re not supposed to be running around a crib.
See this crazed playful face with wide open eyes that are supposed to be gently napping away?
This is what non existant nap time looks like around here this past week.
And I’m now a mom who gets nothing done.
And now I understand.
