  • Props to all mom's who balance pregnancy and their other children! I was chancing my cousins 1 year old around at Christmas while his mom was getting the door, and it was 5 minutes but man I was pooped from trying to keep up with him! So BIG props to all you mama's out there!

  • I'm typing with a toddler next to me who won't stay in bed because she knows Daddy isn't home.  She's always harder on the nights he isn't around (tonight's Bible study).  Tonight I'm too tired to fight her on it and her little toddler bed is too uncomfortable for me to lay next to her with my joint pain and big belly.  So she is hanging out with me now watching Arrow on TV and guess what?  Daddy can put her to bed when he gets home.

  • DD will be 3 in April and knew how to get on my nerves today.  The worst part is that she wasn't even throwing tantrums or anything, just doing everything on her own sweet time schedule and being really needy.  

    Lugging around 35 lbs of toddler isn't easy with 20lbs of baby on me!

    This made me laugh. There have definitely been days when I've wished that DD was interested in TV.

    Those work for my 3 year old and the DS keeps my 6 year old occupied.  My oldest has ADHD and a whole host of other issues.  I crawl in to bed every night because I'm so exhausted from keeping up with them.  Not sure how I'm going to survive that first sleepless year (none of my kids are good sleepers).

  • I am a 35 week pregnant momma with a 2 year 8 month old next to me. I was expecting to have issues with my older one and me trying to explain someone else coming into our family. Luckily there was no issue there. Instead I got HG this entire pregnancy, and DS1 has been my support system, between checking on me when I get sick, to bring me water to attempt to drink. Honestly, I think he has been the best person to be around me for this. I think he will be really happy when momma isn't sick anymore and LO is here to interact with.

  • My son was used to falling asleep on my lap/belly at night and now b/c the bump is so big he can't do it anymore.  But, he does give my belly kisses for baby brother, which totally makes me melt.

     

    And thank God for Doc, Jake, and the Umi's!

    Son #1 is already 2! Not too much longer until Son No.2 arrives! Lilypie Maternity tickers
  • I hear you. It's not easy. DS skipped his nap for the first time yesterday. I told him it was a one time deal. He is NOT dropping his nap right now.

    This. If it's not sports center, he won't watch it. And even that is more like background noise.

  • 33 weeks with a 2 yr old.  If my DH wasn't picking up most of my slack I'd die LOL   I'm so stretched and sore right now that breathing hurts and DS1's constant need for attention and a play is exhausting.
