You don’t mind getting out of bed in the
middle of the night to feed a crying baby.
Dirty diapers aren’t such a chore because it means
your little girl doesn’t have to sit in her own mess.
Being spit up on and thrown up on for some
weird reason doesn’t bother you because you’re
more concerned that this little angle of yours is ok.
I could probably benefit from a shower,
but holding this sleeping baby and making sure
she’s alright is more important.
Growing up all of these things sounded so horrible –
but now that I’m the mom I could care less about the stink,
the work, and the tears because I love her so much.
And I would do anything for her.
