Nothing Can Prepare You

When I was pregnant,  everyone always warned me how difficult it was to go from one child to two.
I thought I had mentally prepared myself for the switch.  After all, being the oldest of 4 kids I knew how chaotic life could be.
But nothing could prepare me for the one to two switch.
I mean.... Wow!

No child is bad.  In fact, Jax-man is a pretty easy baby and outside of the normal toddler behavior, Blake is a very good child.  It's just the fact that I have 2 little people to take care of.

Two mouths to feed.  Two kids who need mommy.  A baby I'm trying to get into a routine, and a toddler who craves outing and adventures.  Thank goodness I only have one diaper to change.  Mom's with 2 in diapers.... my hat's off to you!  You are my heros!  I have no idea how you do it.

I'm pretty lucky to have my hubby home for 8 weeks.  Yes, 8 weeks!!! I realize that is a luxury.  As much of a transition as it's been, it's also been just as wonderful to have so much family time.  I love my kids.  I love watching my husband be the amazing father he is to two children.

I may fall into bed utterly exhausted at the end of the day, but oh man, my heart is full.

And that my friends is the crazy world of parenting.  The hardest job you will ever do, yet the most rewarding.
