Last week, I gave birth to our first child. She was born with a full head of dark hair and big eyes that are almost grey and she is absolutely magnificent.
As TC and I recover from labour/delivery and adjust to our new responsibilities as parents, I find myself physically and psychologically taxed beyond my capacity to complete a mentally demanding task like writing an actual blog post. I hope that NiftyNotCool will not fall completely by the wayside, because it has been very fulfilling to maintain a writing practice and to have a place to share my opinions and gripes or bring awareness to issues that are important to me, but the magnificent creature who has entered our lives is already proving herself an unpredictable force, and I just can’t say for sure.
Let’s assume I’ll be back once I’ve gotten my bearings, and just enjoy the turning of the world for now.
