Ten Tips For Mother's Expecting Baby #2...

This post over at 5 Minutes For Parenting was AMAZING.

Lil Chick is now 4 months old and the transition hasn't always been a cakewalk. Yes, she is a super sleeper and not having nursing issues like Bubbalu did. No, that doesn't mean she isn't any work.

Having 2 is an exercise in logistics. Timing meals, naps and everything in between to achieve a semblance of order is challenging. Just when we have a groove going, we have an outing. Church, grocery store, doctor appointment, errands, etc. Then you pay for it the next 2 days. I honestly wonder sometimes if it is more trouble than it's worth.

Just feeling a bit overwhelmed with the crazies today. Bubbalu was sick for 2+ weeks, and now we are playing the, "is it an ear infection or not" guessing game. I hope it is, because if this recent behavior change is really him, we are IN for it.

Go ahead and read Fried Okra's Ten Tips for Mothers Expecting their Second Child. Written honestly with a huge helping of practicality and a side of humor.

However, no matter what teeth grinding, nerves shredding, stressful kind of day I've had, I still watch them as they sleep and fall in love with them all over again...



  1. Friend I am with you! It's like we are living in the world of adjustments! Hope you have a better day!

  2. An exercise in logistics describes it perfectly! We are finally getting to a point where it's a little easier, but we still pay for those missed naps and late bedtimes.

    I hope Bubbalu feels better soon and reverts back to his sweet lil' old self!!


C'mon, let's chat a bit...
