A day in the life of me is tiring and busy, although I never seem to actually get anything done. Being a mother of two beautiful girls has its rewards, but it's also the hardest thing I've ever done. It's definitely not rainbows and butterflies, unless that happens to be what they're wearing one day. I'm pretty sure I just went 3 days without showering. I hardly ever have clean clothes for myself. I've washed the same load of laundry about 2 or 3 times without ever removing it from the washing machine. I swear that mildew smell sets in way too fast! My hair has a permanent pony tail bump. I have enough time when we get up in the morning to brew some coffee and put the kettle on for the toddler's oatmeal before the baby starts crying because she's hungry and then wants to fall asleep again. And I'm pretty sure my sex life would need a defibrillator to even detect the faintest pulse.
Having two kids is no joke and anyone that tells you different is lying to you. I applaud mommas that have more! Although there is no extra time for anything else except rearing children, we have finally achieved a good rhythm and our house is settling into its new normal. That new normal is pretty great! :) And I hope I can find at least a little time to share it here.
