Today, Levon is 9 months old. It also happens to be his 39 week birthday. Yes, I am neurotic like that. It started when people asked me how old Levon was in the first few months when it was still acceptable to answer with a "week" count. I don't know why, but I still keep track of the weeks. I think it's amazing to see how much he's grown and how many weeks I've been able to survive motherhood. I guess I'm just that kind of mother... I keep track of EVERYTHING with pictures, videos, and a memory book.
Today was a good day that symbolized how amazing motherhood is for me. I got up early to go to the gym to start my day off with a nice, sweaty workout. Then, Levon and I went to a casting call for Babies R Us in New Jersey. It was a quick casting (thank GOD!) so we were home by 11:15 AM!
So now comes the time of day where I have to go to work, which typically is the most conflicting time of day! I am SO grateful that I have a job and that I can work. However, sometimes I anticipate missing Levon so much that I have a hard time leaving. Today was one of those days because Levon and Luke were cuddling so beautifully and I just wanted to join them! However, once I left, I was able to get into work mode and enjoy my role as a worker. I like the flexibility of being both a mom and a worker.
I got home at around 9 PM, and I was way too tired to cook so I had delicious leftovers of Spaghetti Squash and Kielbasa! I peeked into the bedroom to see that Levon was sound asleep. I closed the door happy to know that I have a partner who is MORE than capable of taking care of our son. He's an amazing father and an amazing partner.
Today was an exceptional day. However, even when I have a rough day, I am able to say that I did the best that I could. And when I feel really bad, I just tell myself I'm a hip mom. I mean c'mon, I have Burgundy hair and I see the Misfits with my son and my tattooed friends :-D
