Wearing my baby

The day I came home from the hospital with baby #2 I realized I had two babies.  They are 21 months apart.  That makes two babies.  It wasn't long before I needed a solution -- I found one -- I'll wear my baby.  The first time I read "wear your baby"  I didn't know what that meant.  But I soon found out it really means wearing your baby.  I put on my clothes and then I put on my baby.  We are both much happier.  She feels safe.  I get both of my hands back to take care of my first baby, and I get to cuddle with her too.  I also have great posture when I wear her.

Finding an outlet

I need an outlet.  I love staying at home with my kids -- it is my choice, but I need an outlet.  Hence my friend Bruce helped me start this blog today.  The Challenge is to carve out a little time for myself everyday.  Try to find something insightful behind my mistakes and share that with others.  And remember to laugh.  By laughing at myself,  maybe others can find humor in their day too.  Aren't we all just doing the best we can?
