Complaints or Blessings?

It’s funny how other people complain about things I think are blessings. I’m sure there are things I complain about that other people think are blessings.

What? You ask.

Sleep. How many times have I heard a new parent complain about the lack of sleep they get? Billions. They all whine about not being able to sleep through the night. I, however, enjoy those one on one middle of the night feedings. I do love my sleep and come morning I am always tired. But, looking into the big, round eyes of my baby girl at night – when all is quiet – is so worth it.

Diapers. Many parents complain about changing diapers, especially stinky ones. I don’t mind. I love the tiny little diapers that go on the tiny little babies. And I don’t even mind the smell of breastmilk poop!

Spit up. It happens. Not a big deal. Throw the shirt in the wash and put a new one on. Out of shirts? Run to Wal-mart and get a few more.

These complaints are silly. Especially to those who had a hard time conceiving or have lost a baby. We don’t mind not getting 8 hours of sleep. We have no problems changing stinky diapers. We are capable of changing our shirts when they get dirty. And we do it without complaining about it.

Now… taking a bunch of pills every day… I can certainly complain with the best of them about doing that!!! 😀
