Life With Two.

I've been a Mum of two now for fifteen months. Truthfully, I am only now just starting to get into the swing of things. When I was pregnant with Emilie I was so sure that adding a second little bundle to our family wouldn't change much. We already had one child so our lives were already upside down so what difference would another one make? Ha! If I could go back to eighteen months ago I would give myself a slap!

I'm sure it didn't help that Emilie was (and still is) a temperamental little soul. I always say that Emilie is happy if things are 100% in her favour. We're getting there though and I think I can finally say that I've got a handle of this parenting two gig..

What have I learnt in these past fifteen months?

1 - I will never ever pee alone again.. Or if I actually manage to make it into the bathroom alone within seconds someone is calling "Muuuuummmmm.."

2 - I will not sleep through the night again.. At least not for the next five years..

3 - I will always be doing or thinking for someone else. I'm actually okay with that. From the moment I open my eyes until I fall into bed exhausted at the end of the day I am thinking, planning, or running after someone else. I some times wonder to myself what I done all day before I had children? I must have had so much spare time.

4 - I will spend a lot of my day in awe and amazement at these little beings that I helped to create.

5 - I don't think that I will ever step foot inside a nightclub again.. I've been invited out a few times but firstly I know that I will be asleep in the toilet by 9.30pm. Secondly, waking up before the sun has risen is hard enough without having a hangover to contend with too.

6 - I will continuously see the world through my children's eyes. I love how they react to the smallest of things. Things that I probably take for granted look completely different when I see it through a five year olds way of thinking. I am so excited for Christmas for this very reason!

7 - I will be judged. For how I feed my kids. How I dress them. How I discipline them. When you become a Mum I think you need to grow thicker skin!

  1. Ooh, what a nice post! Loved your line, "I some times wonder to myself what I done all day before I had children? I must have had so much spare time."....I was drinking my bedtime chamomile tea and it literally made me spit it out with the chuckle it caused! Spare time? What's that?!! Hah, and being judged...don't get me started.....parenting is not only a minefield in itself, it's a minefield navigating other parents!


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
