I’m slowly working my way to responding to all your comments about Baby D 2! Y’all have me in tears over here… and it isn’t just the hormones. You all are the best.
I have another update for you all coming next week.
Through being so sick, I’ve discovered that it takes a village to raise a kid.
With my husband at work, it has been a challenge to say the least to take care of Baby D while I’ve been so sick. We live at least 4 hours from our closest family, so that isn’t an option for us. Early in our marriage, our being so far away forced us to rely on each other and really bond as a couple. Once we had a child, we quickly realized that there are major perks to being close to family!
Thankfully, we have some amazing friends here in Louisville who are willing to help. My dear friend Audra has done everything from clean my house (well what I would let her) to take Baby D to the swimming pool.
She has more than once taken Baby D so that I can rest and relax.
I’ve also had to lean a lot on John David as well. He does literally any cooking that takes place in our house for him and Baby D. He also does most the laundry, cleaning, and watching the boy when he is home.
I honestly don’t know what I would do without all this help. I seriously have no idea how single moms do it. I have several friends who are single moms and I swear they have superpowers.
I just know one thing… I’m so thankful for my little village who have been and are helping us right now!
Whoever your support system is…. go thank them! You never know when you might need major help.
