Normally I vlog about this kind of stuff. I really like having an excuse to get the camera out and create something. Seeing that it's 11:30, I am literally the definition of exhaustion, and that everyone else is asleep, this will have to suffice.
I have been a long distance runner, stayed up for upwards of 40 hours straight, and have had long nights of college homework where my mind doesn't get a minutes worth of a break. It's easy to say that parenthood makes all of that look like a joke.
I knew it would be difficult. Everyone told me, yet I still signed up for it. Today I've been up since about 8 am, with 3 diaper changes from midnight to that wake up time. Throughout the day? I've lost track and stopped counting a very long time ago. I always used to say that babies are easy, they sleep a lot and you just sleep when they do! It's a good thing time machines don't exist or I'd go back and hit myself. That may be the case for some, but when it's 3 in the afternoon and the crying ceases, you get to work.
A lot of my creative work has taken to the backburner while I try and regain control of my house. This includes catching up on (yes, catching up. Not doing.) dishes, laundry, and just general clutter. The funniest thing is my house looks the cleanest it has in a long time because when you're home 24/7 cleanliness becomes very important.
Even now I'm updating the website and editing more content for future endeavors while the baby and my gorgeous wife are both passed out on the bed.
If you've read this far into my rambling I first want to thank you, but also just let you know it's all worth it. Seeing those smiles on those faces is the highlight of my day and when time goes by as fast as it does, you learn to live in the moment incredibly quick.
