The Life with Two Littles

I haven't been on here for a while and the truth is, I haven't had a lot to say! Life has been been good, fun but VERY busy. And then I thought, why not write a blog post about life now, with two kids under the age 2. And let me tell you, some days are not easy. Like this evening, I wanted to rip my hair out. I was stressed, overwhelmed and angry and then I look at my babies and all of a sudden I'm happy and they are the littlest angels in my life. So how is life with two littles? Well ....

Typical Days?

In this household, we don't exactly have typical days. Iz is a shiftworker, meaning he's gone 12 hours when he's on shift and he works some days during the morning and some at night. And on those days, it feels like I'm parenting solo. When Iz switches to night, getting the kids ready for bed is usually a train wreck. But how do I even begin to tell you how are days are? Well, I really can't. Some days run smoothly, we wake up do our morning routine, fit in both kids naps at the right times, get lunch, play until Iz gets home (if he's at work), dinner, sleep time routine and then bed.

Then other days are chaotic. The kids wake up screaming or so far apart from each other, they're crying because they don't want to nap, DK doesn't like his meals or he wants to eat on the couch. Vida is going through a growth spurt or teething. Sleep time routine is off because I'm either doing it solo, Iz is home late from work or someone is just refusing to do all the sleep time routines.

Like I said, we don't have any sort of normal in this house. Even when I try to set some sort of "normal" for myself, something happens and it's just throw all up in the air.

How Life Really Is

It's beyond amazing. It's beyond exhausting. It's a learning experience everyday. I have so much love in my heart that sometimes it feels like it's going to explode. My body aches so badly some days, I feel like I've been hit by a car. Sometimes I feel so physically, emotionally and mentally drained. And other days, I feel all the love, care and joy in the world.

So to answer the blog post title, Life with Two Littles Under 2 is something I'm beyond grateful to experience. I love that I'm DK's mom. I love that I'm V's mom. I'm love that I'm doing this along side Iz. Some days are really, really hard. But even through the tough times, I would do it over and over again. My heart is so full and I couldn't imagine my life without DK or V.



And just like that, that is life with two littles under 2.
