I’ve finished three days of this whole “mama to two babes 21-months-old and younger” and all I have to say is, “this is so hard.” Like, haaaard. Monday was one for the books, Tuesday was 50% easier, and Wednesday was something I hadn’t experienced yet. We’re all running on limited sleep with missed naps and off-schedules. Max is probably wondering who’s coming to visit next, and Natalie is still figuring things on this side of my tummy ;) Some hours are a piece of cake where as others leave me totally unsure how to do this parenthood thing. But! I know this is what I’ve been called to do. The younger version of me has always loved being a mama, but sometimes no matter how much “play” is had the only way to figure it out is to experience it first hand. Right? So that’s where I’m at. I spent some time re-arranging the nursery on Monday and it’s definitely been a good change for our family. But, I think what our family is lacking is some consistency — it’s been almost six weeks of inconsistent consistency. Today, all I have planned is a morning play date. And I have dreams of a nice, long afternoon nap.
Do you have kids close in age? I’d love so much for you to share with me how you make it all work.
These kiddos, they sure fill my heart to the brim.
