The baby is finally asleep.
The past few days, he has been trying to give up his morning nap, but I successfully got him to sleep with an extra helping of Sesame Street. To celebrate, I ate two bowls of Trix.
Why I am starting this blog? Because becoming a Mommy was harder than I thought. Because over the nine months of my pregnancy and the subsequent almost-eleven-months of Alex's life, reading the so-called "Mommy blogs" sustained me, taught me, and made me feel that I wasn't alone. If I can do that for someone else, this blog will be totally worth the time away from housecleaning (snort).
But first, as the little man is asleep, I am going to sit on the couch and drink coffee. Later: introductions!
