Worry Wart

Sam has been sick the past couple of days but today he seemed to feel much better. He had a bit of a cold and his sleeping had been off but today he seems back to normal. I never anticipated the worry that comes along with having a child. I sometime feel as if I am saddled with irrational fears. Here is a conversation last night in bed at 11 o'clock:

Erin: Do you ever worry someone is going to come into our house and take Sam out of his crib?
Russ: (silence)
Erin: You think I am crazy, don't you?
Russ: No, but I do worry about him getting sick.
Erin: Sick? What do you mean sick?
Russ: Never mind.

I made a mental note to add to add that to my list of worries.

I have discussed this with other moms and I know I am not alone. I try not to let it consume me and take away from the joy of mothering Sam:)After I had Sam I called my mom and told her I now understood why she worried about me so much growing up and still to this day. I think she appreciated the call!

Here are some pictures of Sam in an outfit outfit Russ bought for him with his new sneakers...

I, too, am struck with irrational fears and I have had that very same conversation with my husband--nearly word for word. I imagine it's just part of motherhood.
