What one month looks like

What one month of being a parent looks like …

It looks like laundry that never stops

It looks like clothes that never get folded

It looks like sandwiches that never get made (or eaten)

It looks like a sink full of bottles that are never clean when you need one

It looks like pacifiers

Pacifiers that are everywhere but where you need one

It looks like pedicures that don’t get updated

It looks like face washes by puppy dogs

It looks like mornings that begin when our nights used to end

It looks like pure bliss

It looks like utter contentment

It looks like love

It looks like more perfection than I ever deserved
