What Was I THINKING??!?!!!

Seriously. What was I thinking?

When Julia was a baby, things were hard. Like, HARD for me. I saw all of these other moms doing things with two, three, even four kids that I could never dream of doing with my ONE child! I was one stressed out mama! What was I thinking...

Now that I have two, I realize how easy it was with just one baby. I'm doing things with TWO kids that I wouldn't have ever dreamed of doing when it was just Julia. Why? Because now I feel that one kid is a breeze. At least my one kid was a breeze. I should have been able to go places any time of the day...whenever I wanted...but I never did because I was so overwhelmed, now, even with two...I can go that. Now I know that one kid is easier, but only because I've been dealing with two for the last six months!

So, a message to all of the new mamas out there...don't put your life on hold just because you have a baby! It's a lot easier to do things with one child than it is with two. TRUST me.

God Bless!

I can so relate to this! When my oldest was a baby I didn't go anywhere alone with him...felt so overwhelming. Now I have 3 ages 5 and under and can do things I never would have dreamt of with just 1. I think after 1 you just kick into survival mode!!

Amen to that!!!! I thought I would never be able to take a shower on my day off unless I got up early. I dreaded the day Timmy was mobile and too big for the swing. Then, I found out that he likes the shower! I take him in with me when its just him and I at home. I don't have to wait and I can sleep in!!!!
