I am alone this weekend for a writing “retreat,” and while the mental and physical space is glorious, I miss my little bug.
It’s so strange how parenting never stops. How it’s all or nothing. How it simultaneously feeds you and feeds upon you. The act of finding balance is constant and crucial.
I’m lucky and grateful to have my in-laws. And I’m thrilled for the opportunity to once again dive into my stories and not resurface until I damn well please.
But also, I’ll be looking forward to those sweet texts with pictures of L, enjoying retired life with his grandparents, without me.
To all the mama writers out there – you got this.
