I'm so grateful that I am blessed with the opportunity to be a stay at home mom. However, the past few days have been a challenge for me. Jonathan and Christian don't generally nap at the same time (though I do try), and the demands of a newborn and a toddler have kept me from completing even the simple tasks of daily life. Finishing anything, from laundry to dishes is an accomplishment worthy of a toast, let alone organizing drawers to make homes for new Christmas toys, etc. I am so thankful Jonathan is a good baby, and Christian is a good boy as well, most of the time. I think I am still just making the adjustment to two rather than one kiddo, and it isn't easy.
Today I had a moment of thinking that my kids would be better off going to a babysitter. Someone who has more experience with kids. Someone that won't scar them the way I am sure I scar my kids. Someone better suited for this whole "mommy business".
I know that tomorrow is another day, and it might just be a perfect one. Here's to hoping it is just a bit easier on this mommy-in-training.
