I know this will be the First of Many Sleepless Nights and Hard Days as a Mom of two. Help me power through the day!
Keep Your Chin Up Mom
I have been waiting for one of these mornings… you know, where I start to question my ability to “Mom” two kids alone during the days. I tried to remain calm through Ailey’s intermittent screaming fits since 6am and Annabelle’s 100 questions about why her baby sister was crying/why I couldn’t play with her.
There was one tear that tried to escape from my eye, but I quickly got rid of it before Annabelle saw I was losing my cool. I know there will be days like this… and that I will survive every single sucky one… but in the moment, the anxiety and feelings of chaos are hard to handle.
The night before Ailey was born, Annabelle gave me a run for my money. I’ve been worrying she would behave the same way one of these days since we brought Ailey home. Today should’ve been THAT day since Ailey is not feeling well and won’t let me put her down.
But Annabelle – instead of being jealous or misbehaving for attention- has been the definition of compassionate, understanding, and adorable. Thank you my sweet girl for being you.
Here’s to hoping tomorrow is a better day! I know this will be the first of many hard days as a mom at home with two little girls.
We are bringing Ailey to the doctor to have her checked out for possible reflux. It is one of the reasons why we think she has been acting in pain!
