It's amazing how you come to appreciate the little things in life
when you have something so little and precious IN your life.
Little things like a long hot shower or that extra half hour of sleep,
or a clean shirt without any bits of baby on it.
Even something as simple as a child's toy can bring on a wave of euphoria.
Or even better, a beautiful set of child eyes gazing up at you,
trusting that you will not let the Hannah Dog tip over the stroller on a walk.
It's these little things that make it all worthwhile.
Although as of yet I haven't come to terms with the fact that my
infant son has better clothes than me,
and cooler shoes.
