2 kids

It's tough handling two. When I think of it I wonder if I'll ever have another one. Amazed at how those get by with many kids and little help. I'm thankful that I gave both my mum and mil to help especially while Ww is away. It is not so much the elder kid that is difficult but the younger one needing a lot of attention and carrying hat's difficult. Add the unpredictability of an infant with regards to their eating and sleeping.

One as difficult as it is then is so much easier than two. I love them both but I also feel the strain of not giving them the full attention I can with one. Add the demands of the chores that needs to be done and for us, packing!

I'm really really thankful that Eliza can play on her own quite well but there are time when she wants my attention and my physical person to play with her which I can't always do so. She is doing well with changing her clothes and eating. But I'll still need to bathe her and food needs to be prepared. So if the time is just not right when emily refuses to be put down, it's really trying.

God grant me extra portion of patience and energy and grace to get through this well. I hate to lose my temper with Eliza during bedtime. But it happens. I try my best to appreciate her for the accommodations she makes for Emily and praise her for some of the things she does and says well.

I haven't ventured into the cooking part yet and that'll pose a great challenge. The challenging part is when and how to cook? I still remember how it wasn't easy to cook when Eliza was a few mths old either. BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging.

My girl was also very sticky and difficult. I had to put her in the sling, backpack style while I cooked and do housework for more than a year! She went everywhere I went, even to the toilet. Perhaps you can try to put her in a baby carrier behind you while you do your chores and pack your stuff? It's easier when they are still small and light. Keep up the good work!

I sure hope I don't have to do that with number 3 when I pop!
