My new normal starts tomorrow

This week my "real" life starts. I will be staying at home with two kids. Two babies. To say that I'm nervous would probably be an understatement.

I've had it pretty easy the past week. Ryan has been home with me and has been a huge help around the house. He started out with a bang early in the week when we arrived home with Claire and has actually began to slowly taper off in the "chores'' he has been doing. I can't say that I blame him. House work sucks. Picking up after a nearly 2 year old sucks. Running on just a little bit of sleep sucks. We've even been wanting to punch each other in the face here and there simply because that's what happens when you have been together for 11 days straight. Or at least it is us. Not to mention the lack of normal amount of sleep doesn't help at all. I don't want to wish away Claire's newborn stage. At all. I guess I have Wyatt to thank for making me patient over the last 22 months because I know that this time I have a whole lot more than I did when he was an  itty bitty baby.

Tomorrow, my extra set of hands return to work. Someone has to bring home the bacon...That leaves me with two little mouths to feeds and two little bottoms to wipe. I'm nervous how I'm going to handle not being able to ask for help at any second. I'm nervous how I'm going to handle two crying babies. I know it can be done because mommies do it everyday. It's normal to be slightly terrified right? Somebody please tell me yes. I will so desperately look forward to lunch time when Ryan will come home. This is my new normal though. I am so fortunate to be able to be home while my babies are in fact babies. I just ask though, that if you read this, you take a little minute to say a tiny prayer for me. Please?

I've got lots of this coming ahead...can't possibly complain!


  1. You'll be fine! I'm not going to lie, it does get stressful sometimes. There are times you are going to need to put Claire in her crib and Wyatt in his room and have a few minutes to yourself. The best thing that someone told me is to tend to your oldest first. Claire won't remember if you let her cry for a few minutes, but Wyatt (may, he's young) will remember if you didn't play with him. This will help his transition go smoother too.

    I'm almost 6 months in with two children and it truly has gotten easier and easier. With that said, there are still trying moments and days. Just breathe, look forward to Ryan coming home and love on your kiddos. You'll make it through the other side, taking it one day at a time. :-)

  2. fingers crossed everything goes smoothly for you tomorrow! :)

  3. It is completely natural to feel scared and unsure. I felt the same way (Logan was 18 months when Charlie was born) I do promise that it is not as bad as you feel it will be. xoxox

    You will get your grove and having 2 babies will feel totally natural. You will have rough days. You will have near perfect days. :)

    Prayers for a smooth transition tomorrow!

  4. Your gonna be just fine!! And yes totally normal to be nervous! Don't worry about the house, just take are of those babies and your self! Sleep when they sleep, let the chores go! I'll say a little prayer for ya!


I love reading your comments!
