1. Using your baby as a scape goat- She helps us parents get out of so many things we otherwise couldn’t and that is wonderful!
2. Partnership- I love how having a baby has not only solidified my marriage, but as we work together to create a stable foundation for home life I find that both of us are happier.
3. Bonding- I love snuggling, holding, cuddling, talking to, eating her toes, doing the can-can with her legs, giving her zoobers, and just hanging out with little Winnie. I love figuring out her little personality and building our relationship together.
4. Service- Everything I do for Winnie is service. I change a million diapers, clean up spit up, nurse her, shake a rattle in front of her face b/c her likes it even though I can’t feel my arm any more… I find that through service I’m able to love deeper. Even though some days I just want to feel like a regular person and shower and not look at the dishes in my dirty sink, I really do enjoy being able to be a stay at home mama.
