One of my favorite friends told me recently that just when it seems like you think you've gotten the hang of parenting, something happens to make you remember how hard it is.
I'm new at being a mother. I may sort've gloat about my good sleeper and eater as I drift through this wonderful dream come true it is to be Levi's mom. But I hope that when I inevitably become in any way complacent that I slap myself out of my stupor and immediately give thanks just as I do when things are sweet. All kinds of times are on the horizon, and some of them will be hard. Whatever has been hard so far has been worth Levi. What is to come is worth him too.
