Trying to figure out how to get things done with a new baby and a crazy toddler??
I have found myself juggling to many things and not enough hands to do them all! So what happens? My house is never clean enough, Cooking is so stressful, and I end up letting my two year old get away with things I would have never let him do before I had Luke. (my now 4 month old)
Once a week Allison (a friend) and I made an arrangement that we will watch each others kids, so that we can have some much needed time with our husbands. So of course like most Mothers with young kids, 30 Mins before they get here I look up and realize that my house is a wreck, not so bad but toys everywhere and the floor a mess.
As soon as I start to get up and start cleaning, what happens? My 4 month old Luke starts crying. Which he hardly ever does. My 2 year old starts screaming for no apparent reason but to hear himself scream! I go to pick up Luke and Nolan decides that he wants to drink out of my cup and spills my water everywhere! My head is spinning and I don’t even know where to start!
Then I realize that I just found my baby carrier that I had from Nolan and never used. I actually almost gave it away because I never used it. So I quickly Put it on, safely put Luke in it, and started Cleaning up my mess.
Luke loved the baby carrier. He was facing me and just laid his head down on my chest, occasionally picked up his head to look around, but stopped crying instantly. I am now in love with this thing. It will go with me everywhere. When I go to the store, when I cook, When I clean. Oh my goodness! It was such a big help I got everything done that needed to be done.
This is my crazy life but I love the life I live. Thank you Jesus!
