Here we go again- Trying to get a grip on time management

If having one kid was a challenge, wait till you have two kids!

I just gave birth (a week ahead of schedule) a month ago and our life is now a daily battle for normalcy… well at least my life is. I am so thankful my mom is here or I wouldn’t be able to bathe or give my daughter a bath, I wouldn’t be able to eat, or feed my daughter, and my house would become some sort of version of the smokey mountains. Right now, our little Mr Marcus – the new addition to the family, is the boss.

I am once again reminded about how much of a superwoman all the mothers are out there who raise their kids. A friend of mine recently gave birth by CS for the 5th time. They are not rich and they don’t have help. She does everything when she’s at home for the kids,and also works at a call center. Taking care of kids while recovering from a CS operation isn’t that easy. It was an easy recovery for me when I gave birth to Aria but the second time around, I cried because I couldn’t endure the pain on the third day. So I can’t imagine how it  must feel the 5th time around. That friend of mine is my hero of CS recoveries.

As with all new babies, the first month is always challenging. Sleeping is a challenge. Getting other things not related to baby done is a challenge. I’m always hungry. My boobs are sore. I feel sorry for Aria because I don’t get to spend enough time with her. Our house is a mess. I am a mess.

Oh well, I guess it all boils down to time management is what the chubby hubby says…though he immediately changed his mind once he volunteered to take care of both kids and let me sleep that one afternoon… and he finally admits that we have found ourselves (which means he will be really involved with taking care of the kids) quite a challenge in this phase of raising our family.

Good luck to us!

  1. Hi Rhey, i cannot say for you to enjoy the moment, because i did not when my three kids were the ages of yours today. but looking back, my experiences then molded me to become a more patient, more caring and doting mother to my three grown up kids today because of how it began with the first pain of labor, the Csection experiences, recovery and colic bouts my Bob and I endured. there will be more challenges that will surprise you, but the phase you are in right now sets the stage for you thank God that He blessed you with your two best gifts, thus far 😉

    hang in there, and just say a little prayer to the Lord who always holds our hands in these “trying” moments… and HE never lets go. you look like a great mother twice over 🙂 —APRIL

    1. awww… thanks.
      I seriously forgot how hard it was the first few months. But I know it’ll pass… sooner than I think and then I’ll never get them back again. So trying to enjoy the little one as much as I can.
