It was pouring rain and I was sitting in our minivan nursing my two-week old daughter, Olivia, and trying to get my five year old son, Jackson, to stop hanging off the headrests.
I finally got Jackson to stop climbing all over the van and to sit next to me – the three of us squished next to the infant car seat – and I read to him while I finished nursing Olivia.
It had been a long day of nursing, driving my son back and forth to kindergarten and running errands. I hadn’t had a nap and I had a terrible headache.
But sitting there in the crammed chaos of our minivan, I found myself smiling. This is life with two – and I love it!
Here is one of my favorite photos that I have taken so far of my little angels – they may be keeping me up at night and driving me crazy during the day – but I am loving (almost) every second of it!
(Now I have to get off this computer because I just heard my daughter create a lovely (loud) gift for me in her diaper. Oh – the joys of motherhood!)
