I’m taking some time off the next few weeks to spend with my family and our new baby girl. In the meantime, I’ve asked a few of my amazingly talented blogger friends to fill in with guest posts. My sweet (and hilarious) friend Stefanie of Sarcastic Cooking is here today with what can only be described as one of — if not THE — best enchilada recipes I’ve ever seen in my life. And that’s saying something, considering I eat so many enchiladas on the regular, they’re basically they’re own food group in my diet. Stefanie has also been one of my greatest sources of advice and support on all things bebe (she has her own adorable wee one, Andy — I mean, look at that face!), so needless to say, I appreciate and respect this gal in so many ways. Take it away, Stef!
Welcome to motherhood, Stephanie! It is a strange little sorority I too was initiated into recently. Steph, you are in the thick of it right now. Let me tell you, it gets better. We new moms need to make t-shirts with that mantra emblazoned upon it… So our kids can spit up on them.
My son was born in December. In Chicago. In the middle of a polar vortex, whatever that is. I spent a good three months indoors with my dog and nonspeaking-only-communicating-via-crying child. I took comfort in long showers when my husband got home from work and Netflix during the snowy days. I was never really much of a shower kind of person. I mean, I bathe for the sake of those around me and all, but I was never a big fan of it. Get in, get out. But, since Andy was born, I find myself taking very long showers just to have some me time. I also find it is a great time to remember what day it is and what I have to do that day aside from devote 100% of my time to a baby.
