I haven’t posted to my blog in a while. Because I live in a bubble. An amazing, house-sized bubble encasing me, my hubby, my baby girl and occasional visitors. I don’t like leaving the house (because honestly? leaving a house with an infant by yourself is freaking hard.) unless I absolutely have to, or I have hubby’s assistance. I’m still out on maternity leave, so I haven’t had to go to work yet. So other than major necessities (i.e. grocery shopping or doctor’s visits) prompting me to leave, I stay in my bubble.
And I like it that way.
But things change.
I will be going back to work next month. I will have to leave my bubble. This is a painful realization for me, so I’m taking baby steps. First step? Updating my blog. I’m technically still inside my bubble, but I’m shifting focus (temporarily, of course) away from my baby, my BlackBerry and my TV to something else. Something that requires thought. So I’m here. Updating. And cleaning out my email inbox.
It’s a slow process. But I’m getting there.
Oh, did I mention I gave birth to my baby girl? (I’ll have a post about that soon!) She’s 12 weeks old today. Hence my bubble. I’m completely wrapped up in being a Mommy and spending all my time with this little miracle. But I know I can be a fabulous Mommy and do other things to (like maintain my blog)…I just needed to be reminded of it (I was motivated to update after reading Katie’s recent posts at Confessions of a Young Married Couple).
So. Blog updated. Bubble burst.
