Here it is the last Saturday of January. I can’t believe it is still January. It seems like it never ends. It’s been a crazy month.
I went back to work, D went back to Mass, J started school again. A turned 3. I missed my first day on the treadmill this past week because I woke up at 1am and couldn’t move. It was awful. I would say I am better now but I’ve had a fever all day. I did walk a mile on the treadmill today. I have met my step goal of 10,000 steps every day since December 15th today will not be the day I break that streak.
I’ve also been thinking about how lucky I am to have such a healthy kid. Without going into a story that isn’t mine to tell I just reflect on when A was born and she was so small I was scared. Those feelings were legitimate and my own to deal with. I cannot imagine the feelings of grief, anxiety, and overall just being scared when a baby is born and there is so much unknown. A came out and didn’t make a noise and she had to go to get her lungs suctioned. I don’t remember the first couple hours of her life because she was not next to me and I was out of it from my C-section (medically necessary not that I need to explain myself). Her sugar was low she failed her hearing test in one ear she was so small she had to have a car seat test. Legit some scary stuff for a first time parent. However, things could have been a lot worse.
Today I hear her yelling from the tub as her dad tries to bathe her. She has tubes now. She is has a great personality and is super smart. Glad I get to teach her that I enjoy running and that one day she will be able to do it with me. Not everyone has that chance.
I am thankful today I can still run. #running #mom #girlmom #thankful
