I had my second baby when my first was 2 ½ years old. We knew we wanted two kids from the start. But really had no clue what to expect. Adjusting to life with 2 in the beginning went smoothly but as they get older it gets a little crazy.
When my second was born, I signed my oldest up for part time preschool. That was definitely the best decision ever. I got two days a week to focus all of my time to just one kid. It definitely helped the transition period. As my youngest gets older, I’ve noticed the need for multiple cups of coffee. HA!! Life with two boys can get a little crazy at times. They get into EVERYTHING!! From playing in the dirt to playing in the toilet bowl, there is never a dull moment in my house.
I have learned to keep my kids busy doing something like puzzles or coloring. We also stay very active. I joined a wonderful moms group last year. We go on play dates at least once or twice a week. I highly recommend finding a moms group. This is a great way to get kids out of the house to mingle with other kids their ages.
My boys like the same things. So having two of everything is very important. Although, I’ve noticed they still want what the other one has regardless of it’s the same. They are still learning how to share and play nicely with each other.
Being a mom of two can be so challenging at times. But I can honestly tell you it’s the best decision in the world to grow your family. My boys don’t always get along, and that can be annoying. But I can tell they love each other so much and as they get older they will only grow closer. I keep telling myself not to blink because the last two years just flew by.
