domestic goddess in 100 words


Staying with a baby while they fall asleep is maddening. My son flops up and down the bed, on and off of my body, for an hour before he goes down, I lie there in agony thinking of all the things I have not gotten to do. When I cannot stand it for another second I meditate to try to let go and enjoy the rest and enjoy the joy of a baby lying on me. A battle rages in my mind and suddenly he is asleep and I am calm. I get to run free and wash the dishes.
