Charlotte was a month old on Saturday, and time has honestly flown. I swear I have never said that more since becoming a parent. Where does time go?!?! Every day around here is different. Some days I feel like superwoman, and others I’m still in my pajamas at noon! I’m ok with it. The type-A personality in me wants to check off a to-do list and clean the house, and I keep stopping to remind myself that all I really “have” to do is take care of my children. Everything else can wait, at least for right now!
If you read my post about being a mother of two, then you know that my hormones were all over the place. Thankfully everything evened out right around two weeks, and I feel so much better. Although being up every few hours at night still messes with my emotions at times! I’m pretty used to running on less sleep, with the help of large amounts of coffee of course!
Right now my biggest struggle is when the husband goes on shift for three days (he’s a firefighter). I can totally manage two kids on my own- it isn’t super fun but I’ve got it under control. The tough part is feeling lonely when you’ve spent the day with the same two people (a 3 year old and 1 month old) and they aren’t great conversationalists. 😉 I am so lucky to have my mom and sister who keep me company and are always offering to come over and help. My next step will be getting the two kids on a routine and getting out more often. So many of my friends have kids so I need to get it together and schedule some play dates!
The weather is warming up here and the days are perfect to get outside and play. And besides, when you look at these two, who can not be happy? 🙂
