Adding These to My Resume

Being a mother entails many different kinds of jobs.

When I was pregnant, I was the Incubator, spending every second of every day growing a human in my belly. I ate, drank, exercised (ha!), slept, read and listened to the music with the health of that human always in the back of my mind.

Then for 17 hours on April 7th I served as the Vehicle of Birth.

Then, for 8 months I was a 24 hour all-you-can-eat buffet. If Norah was hungry or fussy or upset, it was my cue to resume the buffet act. Additionally since her birth I have been the Butt Wiper, the Bath Giver, the Entertainer, and the Personal Shopper.

Now that Norah is crawling I am the Mama-Gym.
