I know baby boy is only 4 months old, but I feel like we've got over a big hurdle, having a newborn.
We've established a routine that works for us.
So..what is it really like?
It's a balancing act. Feeding baby while reading to toddler. Munching my breakfast while dressing baby. Making snacks while trying to calm baby.
It's tiring, exhausting, busy.
It's changing baby's nappy, then dressing toddler, then changing baby again.
It's putting them both in their bouncy chairs next to each other and putting Peppa Pig on, so you can drink a hot cup of tea for once.
It's noisy, crazy, feel sorry for your neighbours loud.
It involves a lot of preparation every evening, twice as much if you're actually planning on leaving the house. Haha
Then just like that, something wonderful happens and all of that is forgotten.
It's overwhelmingly amazing.
It's the best feeling in the world when you watch them bonding, making each other giggle.
You know right there and then, they will always be there for each other.
They get sad when the other one is sad.
They share their toys and chat away to each other.
They laugh at each other and it's just perfect.
It'll make your heart melt.
It may cost more, and you might be twice as tired or stressed,
But just think, having a small age gap will mean they'll be that much closer.
The age gap will be unnoticeable in a few years.
They'll be there for each other no matter what.
It might be hard, but it's so worth it.
Having two children is amazing. ❤
