My universe used to revolve around myself. All that mattered was how things would affect me.
And then Jonathan Chace was born.
I haven’t updated since February because, well, our son takes up most of my energy. Up until he was a year old, that child would not sleep for more than 1.5 hours at night. I was exhausted.
I went back to school in the Fall. It got tougher. He was an angel during the day, barely cried, always happy, but at night — no sleep. Then one day, things changed.
J was out of town for work and I had midterms. I was stressed beyond sanity. I whispered in our son’s ear, “Baby, please sleep well tonight. Mommy needs to study for her midterm. Please!”
On the verge of tears, I put him in his crib and waited while he drifted off to sleep.
THEN. IT. HAPPENED.
From that night on, our little man has been sleeping through the night. I’ve slowly been going back to who I used to be—except now, I am not as selfish.
My son is my number one priority. My goal is to raise a young man who will be respectful, respectable, chivalrous, intelligent, loyal, and displays integrity. I envision him having a positive effect on society. For this to happen, I, along with his dad, need to be there to guide him.
So, I’m no longer the being which my universe revolves around. A little one-year-old has stolen all of my attention, which I give him willingly.
