Four Mom Musings
Happy Monday friends. Last week was one of those weeks. Mom life, am I right? I wrote my first mom musings post awhile ago, so I decided to write another one. This is where I like to get real about motherhood. It’s my favorite job, but it’s also my hardest job.
Noah has been going through a bit of a nap regression. His schedule has been off, and it’s been turning my days upside down. We’ve been on the best schedule for the longest time, so I had a feeling it was about to change. Here are four things that have been going on in my mom life lately.
- The hugs. You guys… when I ask him for a hug he walks up to me and gives me the biggest hug. It’s honestly the cutest thing ever. For awhile he was going through a “Mr. Independent” stage where he wasn’t into cuddling, but he’s come back, and it’s amazing.
- Day care? Ummm… I’ve been considering it. From the beginning I was against putting Noah in daycare. I wanted to keep him at home, spend as much time with him as possible, and keep him from constantly getting sick. Now that he’s 18 months old, I’m almost thinking he would benefit from daycare. Interaction with other kids is huge, and I feel like he’s getting bored at home. My sister is helping out one day a week which is great, but I’ve been finding myself thinking about the daycare word lately. We will see what actually comes of these thoughts.
- This kid eats constantly! Anyone else have troubles keeping their little one full? Noah eats multiple times a day. One of the things my sister recently texted me while she was watching Noah was “All he does is eat”. LOL. We feed him really healthy foods, but it’s just hilarious how often he wants to eat. He definitely takes after his mom and dad. One of our favorite things to do with him is to take him to Central Market to go grocery shopping. He literally knows the sample stops by now. This little man is a foodie.
- Will I be able to handle two kids someday? Eek…Dylan and I both want to have another one, but somedays I’m wondering how I will do it. Sure I get to work from home, but I work a lot. It’s hard to balance it all, and I’ve shared that with you guys here on the blog before. I honestly thing we will need more help around here when that time does come. How did you transition from one kid to two? Leave your tips for me in the comments below.
