Motherhood. I literally cried for two weeks straight before my second child was born. I was afraid that I wouldn’t love him as much as my oldest. I was afraid I wouldn’t be a good mother to him. I was afraid I couldn’t handle two children. I was afraid I was going to lose my mind. Most importantly I was afraid my oldest was going to feel left out. Soo many emotions(hormones) ran through my head, I was just paralyzed with fear. I read countless articles(late night dates with BabyCenter.com) and shared how I felt with those closest to me. All said it was completely normal…but it sure didn’t feel that way.
Fast forward to today, I am happy to share that I think we’re all getting along fairly well. My newest bundle arrived early June at 12:34PM (pretty cool, right?) and totally rocked my world. It’s true what they say .. Your heart grows a little bit bigger. I never thought I could be filled with soooo much love. My boys are literally my life. It’s only been a few weeks, but I couldn’t imagine my life without either of them. Our newest truly completed our little family. #Cliche I know!
Enough mush, lol. Let’s talk about day to day life. The love part came easy .. The ‘mom’ing of two under 4 is the hard part. Balancing attention, nap times, noise, feedings, feelings … Everything has been…… an adjustment(to say the least). My toddler has gotten a little more screen time than I like to brag about, but we’re all learning(ABC Mouse is educational, right?). We’re learning from each other .. and lots and lots of Pinterest mom boards. How do they make it look so easy?
