Aww, honey. Deep breathe. You want honest? Sometimes it's harder and sometimes it's easier. How's that for helpful? Seriously, my kids are 27 months part. Today they are 6 and 4 years old. There are days when dealing with two of them is enough to make me wonder if I have to be committed. There were days with a toddler and a newborn I wasn't sure sanity was a distant memory. BUT, having two kids, especially two close in age, is an amazing gift for *me* and them. I have a boy and a girl - and they adore each other. They are best friends even though they can fight like cats and dogs. With one kid, I was the only play friend in the house for long stretches. With two? They can amuse each other for hours. They comfort each other. They teach each other. It's amazing to watch. When I see my DD look up to her big brother with those big blue eyes and say "I love you so much Brubee", holy cow. My heart goes to mush.
