So, going from one to two children has finally hit me. I can admit that I am overwhelmed by it all. I am assuming (and praying) its because she is an infant and that eventually I will develop a system. I am the type of person that likes to check things off my to-do list, to help me feel like I've done something. In the meantime I am just going with it. What seems to work the best is picking one chore to accomplish for the day, not running a million errands (because she's miserable if she misses her naps), and cooking an easy meal during the week days. Otherwise, I am working all day and have no time for the baby, my son, my husband or me.
I am a super planner and have found it most helpful to assign a chore to each day of the week and make sure I have girlfriend time set up at least once a month, as well as, a family activity. This weekend we are heading to the Philadelphia Art Museum and I have a brunch date planned with my friend.
