Being A Mom to Two Under Two

I figured it was about time I wrote this requested post (or wrote any post at all rather) before I no longer have two under two. Wahhh Maddox turns two on Sunday.

It's been the most common question I've received since I've had Emery. "How is it being a mom to two under two"? And to that I have no simple answer. It's wonderful, eventful, chaotic, fulfilling, tiresome, incredible, a learning curve... haha how's that for an answer?

I love having these two babies so close in age. They are 18 months apart and I swear when I was pregnant with Emery and told people that they would get big eyes and say, "you sure are going to have your hands full. Good luck!" They were right - I do have my hands full, but I truly do love it! And I wouldn't have it any other way.

It's honestly not as difficult as I thought it would be. Maddox sort of 'stepped up to the plate' if you will after Emery was born. I had spent the last few months of my pregnancy trying to prepare him the best I could. I taught him to climb the stairs on his own, hold my hand when walking in public, put his dishes in the sink. Things that would make my life a little easier with a newborn. I definitely recommend doing that if you are in a similar position with this age gap.

Once Emery was born Maddox had about two weeks of extreme jealousy. I was devastated and kept thinking, "what have I done"? So those first few weeks were really just survival mode with a newborn and jealous/needy toddler. I started having him become "mommies helper" by throwing away her diapers, carrying her paci, helping me get her dressed. Anything I could do to make him feel needed. And I would praise him so highly for doing these things. That was a huge game changer for us. He lost his jealousy and started being really helpful. He still ignored her almost all the time, but at least he wasn't crying on my leg anymore while I fed her.

And now that she's 5 1/2 months old and sitting up, laughing at whatever Maddox does, playing with toys, reaching for things, etc it's almost as if Maddox finally sees her as a sibling. Someone to play with. He brings her toys, takes her toys away #workingonit, pats her head, gives her kisses, and my personal favorite, he does things to make her laugh. It's the best to watch their sibling bond truly begin and I can't wait to see it grow deeper and stronger!

I would have to say the hardest part has been learning how to balance it all with another humans schedule. Sometimes they don't nap simultaneously and this used to drive me nuts, but now I see it as one on one time with each kid. Perspective is everything. Sometimes one is cranky and the other is pure bliss, sometimes they are both up in the night. It's one more person to take care of, but I've learned to roll with the punches and expect that no two days will look alike. 

So to wrap this up, two under two has been a whirlwind, but I'd do it again in a heartbeat because nothing else matters in the grand scheme of things. These babies continue to fill my heart with overwhelming joy. Joy that hurts! Joy that causes me to scroll through their pictures after they've gone to bed. Joy that make me feel like I could physically burst when I stare at them.

Okay I'm rambling now, but being a mom to two under two rocks! Perhaps I should shoot for three under three? #kidding #sortof #givemeallthebabies #noimnotpregnant

  4. Hi, My wife and I have been married for 15 years. For over five years I have been dealing with jealousy issues because of flirting and her having emotional type affairs with other men. I felt like my masculinity was in question and if I said the way she was acting bothered me, it seemed to make matters worse or I was accused of being controling. During this period I did state I wanted a divorce if the behavior was not going to end: texting men a night, leaving for the weekend without letting me know where she was going or not responding to messages. We do have a son and basically it's been him and I for the last year on the weekends. She disconnected completely from being a good wife and mother. In April she said she wanted a separation and I said no we need to get into marriage counseling. We did try that, but she was not very responsive and didn't give any effort. Afterward she was adamant about separation and divorce. I continued to say no and that we needed to save our family. She presented a separation agreement and I had to hire a lawyer. Because of the above behavior my lawyer suggested a private investigator. The investigator discovered my wife was having an affair with a close friend of the family who also is married with children. We know the extended families. I feel like I should tell this man's wife about what happened. This adultery has devastated me emotionally, I feel betrayed and I'm physically drained. I know my wife is passionate in terms of her sexuality, and I can't get the thought of them out of my head. It makes me question my own manhood, and I feel very inferior or that he must be a better lover or what ever. The problem is my wife pursued him. She would go to him and she lured him into this adultery. I felt this was coming for some time and could not stop it. She was not only lying to me but also to our son about what she was doing and where she was going. My family is important, my son loves her and as crazy as it sounds so do I. Can you respond with a course of action on how to proceed? I was still have a very huge place in my heart for her. so i searched for help online and I came across a website that suggested that Dr Ahmed can help solve marital problems, restore broken relationships and so on. So I felt I should give him a try. I contacted him and he told me what to do and i did it then he did a spell for me. 28 hours later, my wife came to me and apologized for the wrongs she did and promise never to do it again. Ever since then, everything has returned back to normal. I, my son and my wife are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Ahmed. as it is a place to resolve marriage/relationship issues, do you want to be sure if your spouse is being faithful to you or Do you want your Ex to come back to you Contact.: E-mail: Ahmedutimate@gmail.com or call/Whats-app: +2348160153829 save your crumbling home and change of grades its 100% safe. I suggest you contact him. He will not disappoint you.

  8. You're awesome, girl! I'm impressed with any woman who's a mom of two under two. My sis in law just had baby #2 when her daughter was 19 months old and it's so cute to see the two little ones together!

  9. I saw good feedbacks all talking positively on the awesomeness of dr. wakina love spell and spiritual healing powers via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com. I became testy and hungry for services to help get back the love of my husband. My husband was and has always been a good and caring lover, but everything changed the night he came back drunk, we had quarrel which eventually lead to fight, I was hospitalized that night. After spending days in hospital, I came back to note that he has threatened me with restraining order. His actions where so petty like he has been nursing my exit. I was in pain for being thrown out for no reason.
    I could have naturally waited for him to come back to his senses and do the right thing, but I discovered I was two months pregnant, so I needed him badly, but I cannot win back his heart alone without connections from higher powers.
    After two months of separation without any means of communication, he came back to me as dr. wakina predicted after casting a reunion love spell on us, we are united again for three weeks waiting anxiously for our baby. It is unbelievable dr. wakina possesses such power. Doctor can be reached via dr.wakinalovetemple@gmail.com
