The new hierarchy of needs

They say (54234688644 times when you’re pregnant) that “a baby changes everything” and it’s true. (the fact I literally wore earrings for the first time yesterday is proof of that) Babies create a new hierarchy of needs and especially so if you are a sleep lover and a breast feeder.
The new standards are
1- baby is fed thoroughly
2 – momma (aka Food Source) is fed thoroughly (not always an easy task for a gluten free dairy free soy free existence)
3- momma sleeps
4- everysingle thing else in the world. Including but not limited to: bathing, basic hygiene, communication with outside world, work, entertainment
It’s basically survival of the fittest these first weeks and as I always say “no one in the world can feed him for me or sleep for me”

About Amanda Jean Elliott

I am a joyful believer in Jesus Christ, a mother, a sister, a writer, a maker of gluten free roux and a style editor. I love my son Wilder and the wild life that comes with a 4-year-old who has the energy of a pack of wolves. I also love naps (a lot). I love to cook and create my favorite dishes without gluten not because I'm trendy and anti-gluten so much as it makes me feel like I've been run over by a pack of wolves. I teach 5th and 6th grade girls Sunday School and have a classroom of the greatest girls I could imagine. Girls who often teach me more than I teach them. I believe these girls and many others are the spark to start a fire for The Lord the likes of which this world has never seen. I see more and more girls learning about more than just who God is ... but, learning about who God says THEY are. It is my prayer for every woman to know without doubt that we have a good good Father in heaven and whatever is not right on this earth, He will make right in this life or the next.
