Ok, so I will be the first to admit, having kids is hard. Every part of me that thought one was hard, now counts my blessings during each scarce moment of silence. Two kids is nuts! It definitely gives you a new found respect for your own parents! I just wish people talked more about the scary parts, the sad parts, the parts that break your heart, and the ones make you feel like your losing your mind. They don't though, kids are a miracle and there's no debating that, but sometimes, just sometimes, they are so trying it can be a struggle to get through the day.
I'm thinking about writing a book, just tossing sone ideas around, about what really to expect during pregnancy and the toddler years. I've always been a pretty blunt and honest person, I think I can be funny at times (at least my sister thinks so) but mostly I want moms to know they are not alone. It's ok to laugh, to cry, to feel like walls are caving in, and then the in the next instant to feel so blessed your scared your "due" for something bad to happen. I don't know, any thoughts? Anything you wish someone would have mentioned so you could've been more prepared?
On a positive note, sometimes they melt your heart while others they can make you laugh so hard you can barely see straight. Check out this video of Wyatt, how funny! He cracks us up constantly, what an infectious laugh.
