Baby Lag...because it's a real thing

Wednesday, April 24, 2013

I'm inventing a's called "baby lag."

It's going to be a real thing, people. I'm telling you now. Start using it with your friends because it's real!

I recently had a baby, and by recently, I mean less than a year ago.

That's recently if you ask me.

and I still have baby lag.

I feel like I'm slowing emerging from the fog of baby lag, but it's a very slow and arduous process.

I am in complete awe of you super moms who have a baby and then return to normal life and work as if nothing odd at all has happened in a mere 6 weeks.


I'm still complaining about my back pain and the inability I have to breathe when I go up the stairs, and I have not been "with child" in 6 months!

(oh, I'm sorry....did you say that's just being out of shape? Oh, okay, then that's what I am too.)

I am suffering from baby lag AND out of shapeness. There. Are you happy?


Me too.

So back to that baby lag case you have not yet caught on, I'm doing a play on words...instead of "jet lag" it's "baby lag."

So now we're all on the same page.

I tell you all this to tell you that I'm sorry that I apparently forgot how to open my computer in the past 6 months. If you have emailed me, tweeted me, facebooked me or tried to link me in (I'm still confused about that one too),  I have probably not responded to you.

This post is not a reassurance that I will respond to you, just a clarification that I am not unsupportive or unresponsive or uncaring, I am simply suffering from baby lag, and I cannot guarantee a time frame in which my life will return to standard operating procedure.

But in the meantime, I have decided (in my midnight, "I'm still nursing, therefore pumping while I should be sleeping state") that I am supposed to and will be writing from this point on until you can't stand my craziness any longer.

Just thought you should know that I have a legitimate excuse and it's called, "I recently made a baby, and I'm still not over it."

Hoping you still love me and didn't forget who I was.
