Sometime within the next three weeks (hopefully very soon!!) I’m going to be a new mom again. I’m going to have a newborn and a 20 month old toddler.
(I have no idea what I’m doing.)
(I’ll figure it out though. No problemo.)
These are the last days I have of “just” Lucas and I. I don’t know how much my life is going to change, if it will change much, if I will adjust easily or not, if the new baby will be an “easy” one or not. This is sort of a weird feeling! I feel like I should be doing something…
It’s sort of like when you go from having no kids to having one. A lot changes in that short time. The days before your first is born you might spend your last days alone going out for dinner, getting your hair cut or just sleeping all day. Or when you go from being single to married and you have a Bachelorette party to celebrate. (Okay, I guess that’s a little different.)
Am I suppose to be throwing a Lucas and Mama party with ice cream and impromptu self photography?
Would you spend nap time relaxing on the couch watching movies or reading a book and catching up on sleep? Or would you spend nap time cleaning, organizing and working on long lost projects?
Would you stay up late at night to savor every last minute of “baby free” zone or would you go to sleep early?
Would you go out and do fun and exciting activities with your toddler or would you stay home and do simple things?
I’m just wondering…. if I look back in the months to come….
What would you do?
