Greening In

I used to like houseplants.  Then I had babies and suddenly keeping my green friends alive and tended to became more than I could handle.  Breastfeed round the clock?  Check.  No sleep?  Check.  Tend to every whimper and cry?  Check.  Water a plant?  No can do.  Seems like such a small thing now, but I do remember that tipping point when little things became big things and had to go if I was going to survive. 

I'm slowly reintroducing household ruffage.  So far all living things under my care remain intact.  Funny how a little thing like watering a houseplant can feel so much like freedom and independence.
