During those times, when my son seemed glued to my chest and I fretted about all the straightening I needed to accomplish, and all the milestones I "needed" to record, I found solace and comfort in the following poem included in the Womanly Art of Breastfeeding - it's called "Babies Don't Keep" by Ruth Hulbert Hamilton.
The cleaning and scrubbing
Can wait 'til tomorrow,
For babies grow up,
I've learned to my sorrow.
So, quiet down, cobwebs.
Dust, go to sleep.
I'm nursing my baby,
And babies don't keep.
My son is almost 14 months and every now and then I continue to tell the cobwebs to quiet down. It puts me in the state of mind I need to fully enjoy my babe, even when it seems that there are a million other things to complete (or start!).
I hope everyone is enjoying these first days of 2012. Here's to a happy, healthy, new year full of peace and joy and family fun.
