I never really understood the saying 1 is like 1, 2 is like 20 – but believe you me – I do now!
Before Aidan was born, I sort of had the impression that the jump to two kids will be easier than the jump to one because we’ve done it before. We should know what to expect. But honestly… that is sort of laughable to me now. The transition from 1-2 is very much like entering a completely different universe. A familiar universe at times, but mostly still unique.
Life with one kid was a lot easier.
After we had Alyssa however, those first 3 months were so exhausting – or so we thought. My perception of the word exhausting is just on a whole other level now!
After Aidan was born, I found juggling the needs of two little ones extremely hard. Having to deal with the tantrums of the toddler whose world has now been turned upside down and not to mention the lack of sleep – it gave me a serious reality check.
This month, I’ve been sharing my thoughts on taking care of ourselves – as the organisers and hearts of our homes, we need to take a step back and give our bodies a chance to relax and unwind!
Easier said than done, and the only guaranteed way of us actually relaxing – is by knowing that our babies are well taken care of – healthy, happy and secure! One way of doing that, is ensuring they have healthy bottoms! Isn’t it?
Alyssa is a big fan of collectibles! So, it was with huge excitement that she received the new Hatchimals Coll-Egg-tibles range to review. Alyssa was super excited to get hatching and while I was trying to figure out how the hatching process worked, she knew exactly what to do!
If there’s one thing I know about the journey of Motherhood, it’s the fact that the road is a long and very rewarding one – but also one that does not come without obstacles.
For each and every Mom, the road will be different. Some will have huge bumps to overcome, while some may have a number of little ones along the way. No matter how the road will look and what these obstacles are – it makes us stronger and gives us perspective on many other things around us.
I’ve had a few bumps along my journey which constantly makes me question my “worth” as a Mother. When my kids react with tantrums, when they get hurt or when they get sick – I always seem to question – “What have I done or not done for this to happen?”
