I think the laziness to write was taken to a whole new level over the past couple of months.
It’s the baby. It’s all because of the baby. (How I’m going to miss saying that when the baby is finally here inshaAllah)
Not that I’ve been overly busy, but being a homemaker is NOT an easy job and I can imagine how much harder it will be with a baby to take care of. It has been a year beyond amazing though – I have had to learn to live with a boy. To put into practice all the lectures I listened to pre-marriage of how important it is to be cheerful when your husband comes home late from work. (How naive I was in thinking if that could be difficult). To get up to the same cycle of work, day after day. To not have your girlfriends at a call away for a day of fun. To constantly have to deal with the aching thought of how you’re away from your parents as they grow older each day. To realize that long walks in the park or cooking meals together is a luxury of time that every marriage doesn’t have.
But like they say – The icing is all you see in the first two years of your marriage. And oh boy, has it met expectations or what! From getting to know that every step you take from now on will have an impact on your child, to watching your husband fall in love all over again with someone he hasn’t even met. From realizing that a man risks everything to give you the best each day to fighting over who gets which side of the bed – it has been a mix of overwhelming emotions.
And how did I celebrate? By doing what I do best – Making people fat
All things not sweet.
