I was expecting things to be messy with a newborn. So far there has been a ton of pee and poop, which sometimes ends up on her feet, and sometimes ends up on my hands. There is also a mess in the kitchen, because putting dishes in the dish washer is not a top priority. There is laundry everywhere. It’s clean, but it is certainly not folded, hung, or put away. The one thing I never imagined was how our bed was going to transform. It is a disaster. No matter how pretty it looks at the beginning of the night, it will look like 15 dogs have been romping around in it all night by morning. There are extra pillows piled behind me so I can prop myself up while nursing in the middle of the night. There is an extra blanket behind me (in the pile of pillows) so I can pull it up around me while I nurse because the air vents blow right on me. Somehow I keep stealing all of the blankets, which is weird because I hardly sleep, why do I need ALL of the blankets?
That green thing is our comforter. I don’t know how this is happening either.
