I wanted to share with other mommies the huge difference that is in my life. My 2nd son Jacob Francis. He is awesome, beautiful, happy, healthy and crazy. Whew! LIfe with two boys and a hubby is nuts!

I never thought I would be so busy all the time. Cleaning, picking up toys, laundry, cooking, bathing, playing, paying bills, grocery shopping, Christmas shopping, clothes shopping, the list continues.

Talk about overwhelming. I started a part time job at night which turned out to be great becasue I get a release from my duties at home and now my hubby gets a little dose of what I go through. Still not enough of a dose but a little.

WHEW! Is all I can say!

I understand everything you mention. it is exhausting now, but remember they will grow and be independent before you know it. And, as I frequently need to remind myself, the mess in your house will always be there, but the kids won't. They won't remember what your hair or clothes looked like or even the orderliness of your house- only the time and love they get from you. So, do the best you can, accept tht that there will be a mess and that is ok  and you will get through it.

Thx. you are totally right about that! Spending time with them right now is all I care about. My DH is not really in agreement tho. While he wants the best for our children he still wants a nice orderly house with everything taken care of. We both used to be the most organized, clean, neat people and that went out the window. I think that is one of the biggest adjustments I have had to make, so that is a tough one to let go of. But I got a cleaning lady to come every other week to help the situation. I figure I am working now, I deserve it!
