a little

Sometimes, as a mother of a baby during a pandemic, I feel so very alone. And then I, sometimes, remember my baby and I are in this together. When I can remember the latter—and truly be in that moment of clarity—I understand our relationship and our roles a bit better. I feel a little more aware of how awesome and unique our relationship is (and, yet, so universal). I feel a little less tired and a little more energized. A little less lonely. A little less overwhelmed and depressed. 💗
