Three weeks ago mom and I took Keegan and Jack to the doctor. I thought it would be fun to take them both and get Keegan's 18 month shots. Now, this was when Jack was a week old...I was a little ambitious. We got there and loaded up the boys into the new double stroller which was not quite cooperating. Actually I think it was the users, but we will blame it on the stroller. At the same time, Jack was screaming his little head off because it was time to eat. I had a major freak out moment and said, "I CAN NOT DO THIS!!" My poor mom, bless her heart. She was dealing with a over the top hormonal woman that day. As a side note: My mom is the most amazing woman I have ever known. Even though she probably wanted to cry at how I was treating her, she kept it together. Don't you hate when you are mean to the ones you love most? Anyway, I love how she loves me unconditionally.
Well, three weeks later I am happy to say that I can do it. I am on my second week alone and it has been so much easier than I thought it would be. Last week, Keegan and I even had a bad cold and we made it through the fever and the sniffles. Praise the Lord Jack did not get it!! Really, it has been so much easier than I expected and while I am on my feet most of the day, I love it.
I am laughing at myself because one of my favorite shows is Jon and Kate Plus 8. While I feel like I have accomplished so much, it makes me feel so silly because that woman handles 4 times more children than me! Oh well, it still inspires me and it puts having only two children in perspective.
A year and a half ago, when I was childless, I did not know how to even change a diaper. I just have to pat myself on the back a little. :)
