I do appreciate being able to stay at home, most days to contain the chaos and just play with my kids. Having two kids has definitely been harder than we thought. Charlie has tummy troubles and is fussy a lot. Madeline has been pretty emotional, dramatic and needy. So at every moment a child is crying and needs something! Most of the time we feel like we're in survival mode but we're making it. I've been spoiled because Matt has been home more with this rotation. He's been such a great help and support.
BUT we're all healthy and generally happy :) and grateful for all of our blessings.We're especially enjoying living in a place where we can enjoy autumn and the feelings of holidays coming!
