As I’ve said before, the first few weeks “adjusting” to two babies were a lot easier than I thought they would be. It wasn’t a walk in the park, but it wasn’t that difficult.
And then this week happend. sigh. This is hard. Little Man is acting out A LOT in attempts to get all of my attention every minute of every day. My mommy in law said that it’s because he is just now realizing that Baby Girl is here to stay. So I guess the REAL adjusting starts now.
I haven’t been writing as much as I want to because I’m so mentally worn out by the end of the day that I can’t write the words the way I feel them. I can’t express what’s in my head and my heart while I’m stressed or mentally (and physically exhausted).
Some moments I just want to cry, unfortunately crying is a luxury denied to mothers of little ones ;)
I did have a good cry on hubby’s shoulder the other night and felt much better afterwards. Sometimes it’s good to just let it all out. All the stresses and worries and fears.
And remember that this is just a stage. It won’t last forever. Little Man is about to be TWO. He’s huge. Baby girl is going to be 1 month old on wednesday. Time really is flying by. Too quickly to let things get me down to the point where I can’t enjoy it. It may be hard, and I may feel like I’m going crazy some most days! But that’s okay. I know it won’t be like this forever. But prayers are appreciated!
This post doesn’t have much of a point to it (sorry), except to be honest with how things are going…
