I've decided that being a mother of two is like riding a roller coaster. I suppose being a mother of any number of children at any age feels that way. I've just noticed it more since having two. The good moments are so good. The bad moments are really overwhelming. But fortunately, it's all over before any permanent damage has been caused. This image has helped me as I've adjusted to having two children. Anytime I feel overwhelmed, I remind myself that this too shall pass, or that this is just a brief moment in the big scheme of things. It's helped.
I actually have to say that we've had pretty smooth sailing, all things considered, so far. Our adjustment to being a family of four is going well, in large part due to all the help we've received from family.
Today, though, felt like a roller coaster. More lows than highs, but I made a conscious effort to capture some of the good moments in keeping with this post.
