how I have changed since I became a mother

I can no longer follow the news without fear and anxiety
And not just depressing stories about children - climate change and the economy and myriad other themes too.

Work has become a reprieve
I love my job and rarely considered staying at home. Now it is where I feel accomplished and recognized and reminds me of what I used to be like before. When I make travel plans I think of the prospect of uninterrupted sleep.

My to do list fits into pockets and slivers of time
When I'm working from home and Baby Z is at daycare, or he's with MoBob, or he's asleep. Like right now, at 5:50am.

My identity is now tied to that of someone else’s
The first time I had to call myself "Zacky's mom" I totally freaked out.

I'd try calling myself "Zacky's Concierge". It sounds so Savoy.
