It’s a really long time since I posted. I have a great excuse though.

To be perfectly honest, I was struggling. Struggling with going back to work full time and struggling with being pregnant and parenting a toddler. Some people can use writing or other creative pursuits as an outlet for stress. Not me, I shut down. I lose all inspiration and the ability to string 2 words together. I could not even find the energy to bake treats, one of my favourite things to do. I did however, have the energy to eat treats.
Today, my little girl is 2 months old and I feel inspired once again to put my thoughts to paper or cyberspace in this instance. Bring a mom of 2 is tough and as clichéd as that is, it is true. It is also amazing. What I was not prepared for was how much I would enjoy watching my son and husband interact with my daughter. It makes up for when I’m going batsh*t crazy from being locked inside on a snow day with 2 kids under 3.

I also had some Velcro strips with tape on one side so I stuck it in her closet and clipped the barrettes to it. I think it’s pretty smart for someone who is not getting a solid 8 hours of sleep. Also easy to pick out barrettes to match an outfit if they are stored in the closet.
Check back with me to keep me sane. Next week we move Noah down to 3 days at daycare instead of 5. I know, I’m asking for trouble but being on maternity leave, with a severely limited income and an extremely expensive daycare is not working out to well for the wallet, especially if I have to buy tights, headbands, barrettes and matching shoes for each of Julia’s outfits.
