It was nice to have my brother over to cut the lawn and trim the hedges. Being alone with Josh; I find it difficult to do yard work. I have to put him in the back carrier and tote him around as I rake leaves, or pick weeds etc. It was so nice to have some help!!!!!!!
Something as trivial as driving to the grocery store to pick up a few items even became so much easier. Just get in the car and go; what a concept. No diaper bags, bottles, stroller; no changing the baby to go out and fighting to get him into his car seat. No dragging the dog along so he wouldn't cause havoc while I was gone. It was so liberating, yet at the same time I felt like a part of me was missing and couldn't shake this awful feeling of forgetting something. Another reminder that my life has changed forever. I wouldn't have it any other way though.
