Being a mom of two is, hands down, the toughest job I've ever had. With that being said, it's also the most rewarding job I've ever had as well.
Chloe is only 4 weeks old and I've already had my share of challenging days. Days where Rylee decides to be a normal two year old and not listen, throw tantrums, skip her naps, etc. A lot of people told me "you won't leave your house for a long time because it's just too hard." I will agree and say that it IS tough as hell to leave the house now & takes about 30 minutes longer than it did before, but we still go to toddler time every week & we still go to our play groups. Why? Because Rylee would be a hot mess if we stayed home all day, every day. I'd much rather spend my whole morning getting ready to get out of the house for an hour than deal with her screaming. It's good for her, good for us.
There are definitely things that I haven't tackled yet, like going to the grocery store, but that will eventually come to me.
I never thought I would love someone as much as I do Rylee, but I do and it's amazing. I get so emotional when I see the girls together & Rylee rubbing her head if she's crying. She loves to lay beside Chloe and say "baby." Maybe one day she will say her name and not refer to her as 'baby'. =)
Life is so crazy, unpredictable, amazing and chaotic, but there's no way I would change anything for what my life is like at this very moment.
Our family is finally complete.
