Have a meal. Need a change of diaper. Crying for attention. Being happy at times. Taking a short nap to soothe my nerves if I can. Cuddles and hugs and kisses for baby when others come to visit.
The house is so often busy when a new baby is around. Everyone wants to see and hold.
Okay, I get it. I understand this is one of those things that happen when a family expands by one but, really, when will I get some time of my own?
“Without you around, I sleep like a baby!” I scream out.
Voices, “Why is she crying?”
“Who knows,” my daddy says.
