i just put ramona down for a nap, where i experienced all sorts of guilt for letting her get out a few pathetic wails before falling asleep (am i traumatizing her or preparing her for a life of independence)? now i am spending a few minutes working on the blog before i take a quick shower and start cleaning the abyss that is my apartment. starting with the barf that my cat just left for me (her passive aggressive way of getting attention in a post-baby world?). i am a mom now. let’s do this.
