Lie to me...

It gets easier right?

This whole business about going from one kid to two...
It does get easier right?

It has to because I have seen lots of my friends handle the transition easily. Easily as in they still have all of their hair instead of pulling it out and they can still talk in coherent sentences.

For now I will continue telling myself that it will get better, that I will become a pro at paying attention to my four year old while keeping my three month old happy and content and NOT screaming. I will think nothing of dragging two cute demanding girls to Target and come home with not only what was on my list but my sanity and a little bit of my dignity. It will become second nature to get my preschooler to actually SIT DOWN and eat her dinner, soothe said screaming baby and eat my dinner, while it is still hot. And I will be able to do all of this while looking well groomed and even a tiny hint of make-up.


For now, in the immortal words of Sue Dudley, I am just trying to make it to lunch tomorrow.

You know I can't leave you without this:

The witching hour...

I have noticed that the time between 3pm -5pm is the hardest part of the day. It is too late for Caroline to take a nap but she is tired. It is not quite dinner time. Forget trying to watch Oprah with a tired 4 year old and a 2 month old. Oh, and by the way I am exhausted from being up all night. It is not pretty.

So what am I to do? Grab my camera, put Brynn and Caroline near the window and have some fun!


My girls...

Wonder what I will do tomorrow.

PS. Brynn had her 2 month appointment last week. She is doing well and is 11 lbs. 15 oz!!
