That moment

I’ve been reading a book called The Baby Whisperer.
It’s really quite good.  I may have judged it wrongfully at first
{Never judge a book by one teeny paragraph that
 you randomly flipped open to in the middle of the book.  
It will lead you astray}  I really recommend it though!
 And I’ve only read like Chapter 1.
Anyhoo… in this book, the author talks about
 how everyone has a moment when they suddenly realize, 
“Oh my goodness! We have a baby!” 
So I’m sitting on an airplane flying home from Christmas break reading this and laughing.  
Because I totally hadn’t had a moment like that.  
And then last night it happened.
It wasn’t a bad moment.  It was just that moment. 
Jeremy and I make pizza almost every Saturday night. 
 Or we did up until about 7 weeks ago.
And we usually eat our pizza sitting on the couch watching a movie. 
So last night we decided to pick that tradition back up.
I’d laid Madeline down in her crib just before we started eating. 
About half-way through the movie, I heard a baby cry.
It was the weirdest thing. And don’t call me a bad person,
 but I’d kind of forgotten that we had a baby for about half an hour. 
 Don’t get me wrong, I was glad to be reminded, 
I was just so into the movie, maybe, and the fact that we
 hadn’t ever done this particular tradition when we had a baby
made me totally forget.  Hence, I had that moment
The Baby Whisperer knows what she’s talking about.
Because I’m thoroughly convinced that everybody has that moment.
