My time is promised to my husband, our new baby, and my two older children. I have stories to read, laundry to wash, and cheeks to smooch. But I do want to pop in here briefly lest I lose the ability to type altogether - and lest I lose some of the moments that I am so enjoying right now.
So, briefly. We took the baby to Mass today for the first time. Every cough sounded sinister but I smiled the whole hour, so grateful to be there. Midway through, my heart filled with gratitude again as I hurriedly exited the pew. It has been far, far too long since I've had to rush out of Mass with a fussy baby.
