Mom Of Two

A lot of people ask me how I like being a mom to two vs. just one. I always say that I absolutely love it! Campbell and Bennett are 2 years and 6 weeks apart in age and it's been the perfect age gap for us. Granted, we have had a very easy transition with our little chill baby Bennett and Campbell adjusted beautifully to becoming a big brother so I think that helps me feel the way I feel.
Two kids is A LOT more to handle than just one kid. Stating the obvious but still. I had a lot of downtime when it was juts me and Campbell but I also got bored a lot. I basically have zero downtime now that I have two kids. The laundry quadrupled and my house feels messy a lot even though Bennett doesn't make the messes. Still can't figure that one out. I like that I'm constantly going though. I've always enjoyed "busy work" and my days go by really fast. When I go to bed at night, I usually sleep HARD because I'm so tired. Overall, I actually like the "chaos" (it's really not that chaotic) and how busy I feel.
There are some things that I miss about the ease of just one. Getting out and going places is so much more of a production now. Campbell and I went out and about all the time but I basically avoid getting out with both kids these days. I had a lot more "me" time in the evenings also. Now after the boys go to bed, I usually spend my evenings picking up my house, doing a load of laundry, blogging or editing photos. I sometimes have an hour to watch a show with Scott but most of the time, after I finish my tasks, I head straight to bed.
I feel like the luckiest girl in the world that I'm getting to live out my dream job. Whenever I was asked what I wanted to be when I grew up, I always said a mom. Having more than one kid makes me feel like I mom even harder (haha!) and I love it!! Another question I get asked a lot is if I want another. Honestly, I really don't know. I always wanted three kids but two is a lot and I'm really not sure how I would manage another!!! I guess just like I figured out how to manage two vs one, I would figure out three vs two. But I don't see that being anything I plan on trying to figure out any time soon...if ever. We shall see.
