Life with Two

We decided to pull P out of day care for 2 days a week, so twice a week I am home with both kiddos. We did this for a couple reasons, (1) was the money and (2) I thought it wouldn't be hard being at home and it would be nice to spend more time with P. :)

Its only been two weeks of this, but it is quite difficult. There is a lot that makes it challenging. As long as I have things to do, the days go by pretty quickly, but it is starting to get really hot out and that is making it more challenging. Yesterday, we journeyed up to the park at 9am and by 10am I was begging P to go home because it was so hot and sunny out already! I was fortunate that I had a neighbor come over for an hour yesterday afternoon to watch T while I took P up to the pool (which she LOVES).

Speaking of the pool...P thinks she can swim. And she cannot. My child is quite fearless which keeps EZ and I on our toes. She really will just jump off into the water and float to the bottom or whatever. Or I'll be holding her and she just wants to push off me and go under. I love how much she loves the water, but it is quite terrifying that she just goes under and doesn't know how to swim yet. I have gone back and forth on whether I should get her floaties or not. I am pretty against them but I just don't know. EZ and I have been working with her on just kicking her legs and moving her arms. Maybe we'll get there.

They both seem to be changing so fast and I honestly can say that it is going by so much faster with T. I really think it is because I don't pay as much attention to her (as I should???) I make sure she is fed or changed or whatever, but most of the time, I'm just holding her or have her in the bouncy seat or whatever and am focused on what Piper is doing or playing with her. Poor T. Maybe in a few months when she is mobile, I'll be more involved.

Don't get too discouraged. You are doing an amazing job with both girls. Hopefully you and EZ get some time together too. Thank you for sharing your struggles and daily life.
