Hi, hello there, haven’t seen you in a while. I wasn’t planning on just up and leaving you, but I kind of had this thing that snuck up on me 2 and a half weeks early called . . . a baby! Baby number two to be exact and to be more exact, he decided to make his appearance on Christmas Day of all days
Welp, sorry for the lack of notice, but I had planned this super cute post to tell you guys about our new addition that should be coming soon and have a super fun Mommy-rita drink for all those preggos for the new year but the baby didn’t want anything to do with that and surprised us all with the gift of himself for Christmas! I love how “plans” never end up actually happening when kids are involved
Here’s my cute little #2
I hope you forgive me for up and leaving you without notice but I’m back and ready to win your hearts and stomachs over with some new delicious and yummy recipes coming soon. . . however my plans of coming back with yummy recipes might not actually happen because, ya know, the kids thing So hang in there and I promise it will be worth the wait
So I’m in full swing with the whole two kid thing and I feel like there is no way anyone could have prepared me for it
All I’m going to say is that I’ve never valued silence more in my life than I have in the past month
Seriously, on the two or three occasions that both my kiddos were sleeping at the same time during the day felt like I had taken a vacation to the nearest deserted island and I never wanted to leave, I’ve even valued time by myself in the bathroom or even the short amount of time that I get to walk outside when the hubby gets home to get the mail. Silence is wonderful
I never understood the advice from other parents of, “Sleep while you can” or “Get all the sleep you can now cause that’s gonna change” It’s not like you can store up sleep!?! And what preggo with a two year old running around has any chance to rest or even able to sleep at all? I really started to hate all the “expert advide” that said all you need to do is rest. Really!! You are not an expert, if you can tell me how to successfully sleep while massively pregnant while caring for a two year old, then maybe you deserve the “expert” title but just telling me to rest isn’t enough. I would tell every preggo to just take in and cherish every silent moment you have, even if that is when your baby finally gives in and rests his head on your chest and sleep. Cherish silence.
I am definitely loving the crazy. I wouldn’t trade it for anything.
