My defense mechanism: loosing all interest. I went from reading all sorts of mommy blogs, parenting magazines, etc- just devouring it to none. I didn't want to know what kinds of food you try first with your baby, or what the best cloth diapers were anymore or anything. Slowly that interest is being peaked in me again.
Another part of my defense (distraction) has been birthing a baby of another kind.
First we got pregnant with the idea.
Then it started growing as we tried out making our first frames
Then it got a little bigger as a few of Brenda's clients ordered our frames
Then it got even bigger as I quit doing anything frame related at home
Then it hit the 9th month (figuratively) and we hired a painter
NOW we are in labor. Our Facebook fan page has grown from 200 some fans on Friday night to nearly 2,200 fans tonight- that's in FOUR measly little days, Folks!
It's a VERY hard labor, and forget hours, this one has been days and weeks on end.
Then a BABY
The nights have been late for quite some time.
Everyone is visiting to see the new baby company.
Even meals are a bit un-predictable around here.
We're learning so much every day.
It' can't be left alone, it's 24 hours-a-day care
We're both crazy exhausted.
But ecstatic beyond words!
I know I've been sparse around here, but what can I say- newborns are beautiful and VERY time consuming. Even the non-human kind are. :)
