Life with Two

I'm not going to lie or sugar coat it....life with more than one child is no cake walk, it's hard! It's chaotic and stressful, as well as rewarding. Some days I feel like I'm rocking this mom of two gig and other days I feel like I'm drowning and failing miserably.

I've had several days that I am all alone with both boys and am out and about all day. We might be running Hunter to preschool, then I run errands with Hudson, pick up Hunter, take Hudson to the doctor, etc. Those days surprisingly are the ones that I feel most confident, I feel like I can handle anything they throw at me. It's the days at home when Hudson is crying and needing all my attention while Hunter is yelling that he went poop and needs me to wipe his bottom, that's when I get overwhelmed. Or I'm dealing with a blowout diaper and Hunter is whining and asking for a snack for the tenth time in the last minute that I became tied up with a poop explosion that only a bath will fix.

But...it's so rewarding at times. I love the peaceful times when I'm nursing Hudson and Hunter is curled up under my arm. Or when Hunter and I make up nicknames for baby Hudson, like "Sir poops a lot" or "Mr. Crabby Pants", or "Little baby peanut". These boys bring me so much joy. I try to take a deep breath and remind myself of that during the stressful and overwhelming parts of the day.

I'm still adjusting to life with these two boys, hopefully it will start feeling more routine soon. Right now, I'm just trying to take one day at a time...who am I kidding, more like one hour at a time. Eventually, we will get in the swing of it and life will go more smoothly.

  1. haha, you took some words right out of my mouth!! My latest post is basically exactly this, only I can't stop talking & it's crazy long winded. haha! People keep telling me it gets really great at 3 months, so we don't have much longer. You are doing so great, considering all the chaos you've had to deal with!!

  3. Girl I could have written this same thing too!!!! Two is ridiculously harder than one, and while it us rewarding, it doesn't change the fact that we are only one person dealing with 50000000 needs all at once :( well done sister, just know u are so not alone!

  4. Supermom! I think I will feel like you, that being out and about is easier that being at home. I feel like that now with just one!

  5. You hit the nail on the head with the first paragraph! I always wonder how I can feel like I have everything under control some days and other days I feel completely overwhelmed and out of control, ha! So glad to know that I'm not alone!

  6. I'm a couple months ahead of you with the two kid thing- and I can tell you it gets better! There are still days where I feel totally out of control but most days I'm on autopilot now :) it's so nice to hear other moms talking about these things. Makes me feel normal!
