Being a mom of 2

I know there are lots of moms who read this blog. I have one question. What the hell were we thinking? My friend Becky and I had a quick conversation about this last week. She had 2 under the age of 2. I have 2 under 2 1/2. I know the lack of sleep, clean floors, endless diaper changes, and clean clothes (hell, who am I kidding, I'd take any shirt/robe/sweater that hasn't been spit up on and wear it out on a fancy date), is worth it. Wow that was a long run on sentence. I apologize but these 2 kids have decided to gang up on me. One is sleeping...the other is awake. One is eating...the other one is taking her newly independent stair climbing on her own, then falling. Both yell at the same time while the dog is barking outside at a leaf floating by. We are definitely in crazy town and have brought toddlerhood on the train ride with us. When both are asleep I try to either: sleep, clean, or last night I chose to drink a glass of wine.

Yep, booze. Booze and coffee is how I am surviving. Oh and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and the occasional Doc McStuffins.

All kidding aside, we are doing fine. Brooks is a great baby and a great addition to our family. He is starting to smile and giggle which makes my heart happy.  He is pretty laid back, which is good because his sister IS NOT right now!

Best we could do. 

Hey there ladies!

You're doing an amazing job! This is not an easy transition...and if at the end of the day you are still hanging in there then it is a SUCCESS! It will get easier. I promise. (and then it will get harder again...but then easier again. HA)

Kaiti, I only have the one and I wonder what the hell I was thinking...All the time...Especially yesterday when he threw tantrum after tantrum about seemingly stupid things (like taking a shower or getting chocolate milk at lunch).

You're fabulous and you know it :)
