  • Lack of sleep. It takes a while to get used to it, like a year for me!

  • From 0 kinds to 1 kid was not so bad. My biggest adjustment was learning to bod with this little person. From 1 kids to 2 kids took A LOT more work. Everything had to be adjusted including my patience level.

  • Not getting ANYTHING done! I am a 2 full plates kinda girl, always have been, and adding children meant I had to stop taking on so much work... Which is killing me!

  • Lack of sleep. Learning how to take care of a baby. No privacy.
