Pinch me, please.
Is it a dream or Am I a Mother to 2 already.
I know I was the only one who wished for a second child.
I had valid reasons- Why I convinced my partner to add 1 more to the mix
Don’t worry. You are an experienced one now. Now you know what it takes to be a Mom. Now you know what awaits you next. Now you are clear about the milestones.
See, you were worried that your first will feel jealous. But it’s not that. He loves her little sister.
He takes good care of her, he calls you when she cries, he kisses her and pampers her.
What else do you wish for?
Nothing much but just the energy to handle two Kids at a time, to attend their needs without freaking out, to adjust to a new routine, to pamper and love both equally.
But in this hustle of Parenting, do not forget YOURSELF. You know that how important Self-care is for us, Mothers. Don’t you?
Take rest whenever you can because you don’t know what awaits you next moment- Your attention is diverted and your Toddler is ready to make you pull your hair.
Sometimes, I feel pity for my little one.
I make her cry while I am attending the elder one.
I run behind my Toddler intervening her feeding.
I am sorry for this partial behavior of mine but his emotions are developed and I need to attend him at this crucial phase so that he does not feel left out.
Not only this, but I also feel bad for the elder one as he is missing his outdoor playtime. Its summer holidays and I did not admit him to any Summer camps just because I cannot go out.
Its been more than a Month and I am already feeling stuck.
Sniff sniff! I can smell the guilt. No please, you need not. You are enough. Trust yourself and have patience. This too shall pass.
Stay Calm and Take care
A second-time Mom
