Having another baby is a lot like getting older: I can do almost everything I did before, just not quite as well and it takes me a lot longer...and a lot longer to recover. Of course the double whammy here is that I am a lot older. So you see how it is.
The great thing about having a baby now is that we have some really awesome, laid back mornings together while the other kids are in school. We make googly eyes at each other and laugh and laugh. But baby giggles don't get the laundry done, or the dishes, or the vacuuming.
And the bad part about having a baby now is that we have some really stressful, rushed afternoons in which he rides in a car seat while we bustle about for various pick ups and drop offs. This doesn't get any chores done, either. And lugging around that car seat is killing all the joints in my right arm.
