I am surviving, one would say almost thriving!
Things are going better than expected on the home front. Patrick is such a great baby. Michael is testing his limits. It did not take him long to discover that while I am feeding Patrick he can get away with anything. Poor Patrick, I had to stop feeding him a couple times already this morning to pull Michael off of the end table, kitchen chair and the trunk! He is such a climber.
Because of his climbing, Michael got his first time out. He managed to push/pull a kitchen chair to the kitchen counter, climb up on the chair and grab the bowl of m&ms. Lesson learned, just one more reason not to have a bowl of m&ms in the house 🙂 Michael was not to impressed with the time out, in fact, I think he discovered how to pout. He stuck out that lower lip and look up from his pack n’ play with big sad eyes. So cute.
I thought I would feel guilty about splitting my time between the two and that that would be my biggest battle, but as it turns out, I don’t feel guilty at all. Bad mom, I know. Mom’s are suppose to feel guilty when they can’t give their child what they want, oh well. But really, in my defense, if Michael has to wait an extra minute or so to get his sippy cup while I change PJ’s diaper, he will live. It may seem like the end of the world to him, but it isn’t. Believe me, I know, I tested my theory this morning. Michael had two wait almost 3 minutes to get what he wanted and he was ok… who would have thought!
Who would have guessed that it would take having two boys under two for me to finally learn how to manage my time!
