Right......all I can say is HELL! I swear I have to approach this mom of 2 differently. Some days it is just perfect & wonderful, but the majority of these days that keep passing by are kicking my a$$! Dustin has been home helping out......but I feel like I need 5 more people here with me.
Alexandra......bless her heart, is the best big sister anybody could ask for, but she is definitely become the most whiny 2 year old that has mastered the tantrum like no other. As soon as I start to feed the baby, she needs 30 things. She also goes to the opposite side of the house to get into anything & everything she can......so if you could picture me going through the house holding the baby while he is stuck to my boob.....that happens at least 4 times a day. If Ally would stop the whining, I think that maybe 1/4 of my sanity would come back!! As soon as I start to clean anything or try to organize anything, there is Ally needing something or pushing my 10 piles of laundry onto the floor etc. Maybe my lack of patience & my overwhelmed feeling is some sort of post pardom. I have no clue. I just know that it will get better & easier! :)
So is 2 years enough time in between kids? I still am going to say yes. Only because I could see a 3 year old having the same issues........or similar ones. Plus... I look at the future & how close that Ally & Little Dustin will be & that just makes me happy.
If I can just make it through a few more months without absolutely losing it I think everything will be great.
That is my venting session for now. :)
