I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the Mom. I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the one with the milk on some part of my clothing. I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the one who voluntarily and automatically does the dishes. I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the one who hasn?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t left the house without the baby. I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the one with the post delivery hormone induced acne. I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the one with the tiny baby fingernail claw marks on my neck.

I?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢m the one who when Alex is screaming and won?¢‚Ǩ‚Ñ¢t chill out, can pick him up, lay him on my chest, say his name and watch him go straight to sleep, and get to snuggle with him for a couple of hours and not have to give him back.

Compromise is good.
