Gaining confidence as a mom of 2

...but not too much confidence, don't get me wrong.

I must say though, I'm getting better and better at this 2 kid deal. Instead of panicking at the thought of a whole day alone with both kids; it's just kind of the norm. Drew works long days and does side jobs on the weekends, so I've gotten a lot of practice managing the two of them, and have even gotten ambitious lately and done several outings with both kids. Last week was the first time I started to feel like I was getting into the grove of things. We made it to library story time (on time!), did the grocery shopping, baked cookies, cleaned the house, and I even managed to have dinner ready when Drew got home a couple of days.

Babywearing has been my savior through this. Being able to wrap B up while I get things done or play with Fynn makes it all possible. Not to mention it was a game changer at the grocery store. Drew makes fun of me, because I now have five baby carriers, but he can't deny that they work!

I mentioned back in January, how I was obsessing over babywearing, but now that Bentley is here, I'm seeing how useful it is. Right now my mei tai and ring sling are my go to carriers because they're the one's that are the easiest wraps to do quickly with a tiny peanut like B, but I love, love, love my Ergo that Drew bought me before B was born. I've even done a few tandem wears with the Ergo and the Mei Tai when both kids are needing some snuggles and I'm needing to get something done.

What was the point of this post? Hell if I know... but I guess it's a combo of figuring out life with 2, and how useful babywearing is with 2 kids... yeah, that was the point.
