I have to admit my baby had the bumps for a long time. They were there and then they spread before I even realized what was going on.
If you don’t know what I’m talking about, molluscum contagiosum (MC) are pink bumps with a dimple in the center. They are thought about like warts, but they aren’t. They are caused by a poxvirus. They are really contagious, but doctors can’t do much for them. They supposedly go away on their own in 1-2 years.
The holidays can be very hard - especially when loved ones are gone. But we started a tradition this year that made my heart full.
I love my baby. I love my baby so much. I never knew anything could feel like this. I love my husband a lot, but this is totally different.
Why then, have I been disconnected, irritable, and bored-feeling while I’ve been hanging out with my little one this week? Don’t get me wrong - I didn’t start yelling at, or ignoring, my kid all of the sudden. I just didn’t enjoy myself and I’ve been making stupid mistakes. (What? That thing can be ripped into bite-sized pieces? Who knew!) Along with all that, I’ve been ignoring this incredible urge to be creative while also not having the motivation to do anything about it. It’s also possible that I’ve been self-medicating with food. Pancakes twice in a day? Yes. That day was yesterday.
I write about some pretty heavy stuff sometimes. But, I write about my life and some of the life I’ve lived is heavy. But one Sunday morning was not heavy! There are some moment in life that are so sweet and easy. This was one of them.
