1. I’ve levelled up in Multitasking.
Seriously I thought I was good before I had kids, but now I’m pretty much epic level. I can make Sigi a bottle, while making Frey lunch, during all this I’ll be on the phone sorting out appointments and packing their nappy bag for when we have to go out later. It’s seriously an impressive sight and a useful talent to have
2. Something has got to give.
For all my talk of multitasking it’s impossible to do everything, something has to fall by the wayside, otherwise you run yourself to the point of exhaustion. At the moment the housework has taken a back seat in our house. Don’t get me wrong we’re not living in filth, but it’s definitely messy. Then again I can live with a messy house, I can’t live with the idea that I’ve missed out on time with my children.
3. There will be tears.
Sometimes it’s just one of them, sometimes it’s both of them, other times they take it in turns and on the odd occasion I’m the one crying. Whether it be tears of frustration, anger, hanger or joy there’s always someone crying in our house at this point in time. It’s just one of those things that we need to weather and we’ll eventually get through it (hopefully).
4. Me Time is Essential
Don’t get me wrong I love my kids more than anything, but they can drive me insane. And I find that I need to have at least 5-10 minutes a day of just me time, on my own with no children insight and if they are insight, they need to be asleep. Whether it’s scrolling through social media or listening to my music just to make sure that I don’t go full on rage mode
5. How much love these two give me.
For all the stress they give me, for all the times when they’ve got me pulling my hair out. Sigi just has to smile or Frey comes over wanting a cuddle makes it all worth it. All the stress and the never ending worry just melts away and I realise how much I love them and they just make me forget about how hard it is to manage with 2 under 2. They’re definitely worth it and all the terror they like to put me through.
