Balancing love...

One of the biggest challenges of being a parent of two is balancing your love so that each child feels needed, comforted and secure. By far this beats the daily grind of juggling diapers and feedings and I don't imagine it will go away anytime soon. 30 days in and I'm already constantly worrying about the well being of sister one & two!

No one said it would be easy and I certainly didn't have a romantic view on how this first year would go however this is the stuff that keeps me up at night {besides the proverbial diaper change and nursing session} Not exactly ideal when you're scraping by on sleep as it is!

Two girlfriends of mine asked if having two kids was different as a whole? My answer was a resounding "yes"! Looking back, handling one baby seems dreamy. It has its challenges but not being able to pick up your toddler when she's crying because you have a newborn in your arms presents a whole new set of challenges.

I asked my husband if he thought we'd get through this...this period of hilariously blissful, sometimes frustrating, sleep deprived chaos. His answer: when do you want to go for #3? silence...


  1. i think that's definitely such a hard thing to do. my sister and i are always arguing who my mom loves more... but at the end of the day, we do realize that she loves us equally, although in different ways! :)

  2. You *will* get through it, just like the parents before you :) I'm sure it feels completely overwhelming at times but I've seen you in action and if anyone can do it, it's you!
