Long Days, Long Nights

Long days, long nights.

Sometimes I wonder if I’ll ever sleep again.

But, I know I will, because this is my second time.

Sometimes I question what I am doing, am I doing the right thing?

But, I know I am, because this is my second time.

Sometimes I get overwhelmed by all the chaos and relentlessness of early motherhood.

But, I know things will ease, because this is my second time.

The second time is easier in some ways and harder in others.

My babies are very different.

I’m still learning the dance of Mum of 2.

I’m still getting to know my daughter, her likes, dislikes, quirks.

I’m still waiting for her to sleep a decent stretch at night.

My son is ever changing and growing so fast, a real little threenager, despite only being 2 haha.

He’s still getting used to having a little sister.

So many moments of pure love and joy, mixed in with overwhelm, juggling too many balls and a few tears.

I’m in the thick of it.

It’s hard.

But it’s so damn beautiful and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
