Dispose of birth plan.
Put all cashmere out of reach.
Piss on style.
Shop Wal-Mart in haste and desperation.
Beg for hand-me-downs.
Wear husband’s sweatpants.
Leave room for baby weight, flat feet, worry lines and permanent scars.
Resemble your grandmother.
Luxuriate in a hot shower for 7 seconds one day.
Forget that day.
Chop off your hair.
Lose your head.
Soak all stains overnight in salty tears.
(The stains remain and the tears return.)
Simmer in fatigue.
Whisk in exhaustion.
Churn the night into the day.
Let surface harden until brittle.
Scrape the bottom.
Let time evaporate.
Give up completely.
Except mac and cheese microwaved for 3.5 minutes on High.
Love without doubt.
If you have a minute, stop by here and give Theresa an attagirl.
