Suspicious package?, originally uploaded by JamesCalder
Our dog was fussing and whining at some time before 5:00 this morning. I was frustrated that she was being so noisy while I was trying to rest. To myself I said, "if I get irritated by waking up now, even though I slept through the entire night, how am I going to handle caring for a newborn?"
Then I had an epiphany. It's going to be so much easier with my daughter because I can take care of all her needs in the privacy of my own home. I don't have to go outside. I don't even need to put on pants!
Plus, unlike my dog, I won't have to chase my baby around the yard to make sure she doesn't do anything disgusting with her own feces. At least, not at first.
