One of my first lessons learned as a new mother of three:
Don't overdo it. Just spent the last two days absolutely disgustingly stomach-sick. Dumbly didn't realize that the "normal" and "everyday" workload is still too much when having given birth not even two weeks ago....feeling sheepish for not letting Phill just take care of me, as he has tried to do every day. I didn't think that he couldn't do it, or that I should be the only one to do it, I just completely overestimated myself and completely underestimated the effects of birth. How does one do that, having had two kids already? Shouldn't I have learned that lesson? Going to go eat some Humble Pie....scratch that. Sheepish Pie. There should be such a thing.
