This is not a novel idea, or even news, but I have to say that having two kids is not double the work of one; it's exponential. I love these two girls as much as is humanly possible, but, damn am I struggling to stay afloat. The levels of busy, noise, attention needed, lack of sleep, etc. are threatening to swallow us whole. I keep thinking it will be better when... when it's warm, when Sophie is a little older, when we get more sleep, when whatever. And it will be. And I'm fine, really. I just want a nap, a little time to myself, some quiet time with my husband.

It's a good thing they're cute, is what I'm saying.

I KNOW. And 15 months into the two-kid thing, I still struggle with that almost daily. And I know that once these days are finally over I'm going to look back on them and think, "Damn, I miss the days when they were so little and sweet."

We just can't win, can we? But in the meantime, all we can hope for is a little bit of R & R. I hope you get some this weekend.
