Today, I did my hair and managed to get my wedding ring back on. Big day. Also, and don't hate me because I am just saying this for the record, I can't believe how flat my stomach is. You would never guess that I had a baby 9 days ago, so hurray for all those damned sit-ups.
I feel like I should say something profound and wonderful about Mia and motherhood, but the truth is I am so shell-shocked I can't seem to manage it. She is amazing, and I haven't been driven to tears by breastfeeding in days, so huge progress all around.
I don't know how single parents do it - I wouldn't have lasted a day without Chris. The simple sight of him sitting in the glider holding our daughter is by far the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. Mia may blame me for many things later in life, but she will never be able to fault me for the choice of her father.
