Out there with one baby, your first born, thinking how hard it is? How you literally have NO IDEA what to do? How difficult it is to get out of the house some days?
Yeah, I feel you. I’ve been there. I know how scared you are. How sore you are. How every little thing can seem insurmountable. How exhausted you are.
I feel you, trust me, and I sympathise. I really REALLY do.
But, I have a message for you all (and here’s a bit of tough love for you…sorry).
Suck it up. RIGHT NOW.
Because – one is easy (well, easier). Two or more babies/kids is a logistical nightmare.
Of course, there are many beautiful parts of motherhood – don’t get me wrong, I’m not a ‘Negative Nelly’ or anything. I am completely in awe of my kids, that my hubby and I created them, everything they learn daily, the little people they’re becoming, the precious moments yadda yadda yadda…I FULLY appreciate how lucky I am, and am so grateful every day that we’re all happy and healthy…
BUT, that does negate the fact that multiple kids is HARD.
Yeah yeah, I know. It’s not until you have your second that you get the benefit of hindsight and realise how easy (comparatively) ‘just’ having one was.
You can’t be expected to know that in advance.
