I might as well change this blog’s name to OneCrazyMummy because with baby #2 on the way I won’t be sane for a long time.
Yes, it’s official — the hubby and I are expecting a brother or sister for our darling daughter sometime in September. We’ve had awhile to get used to the idea of two little rugrats running around but sometimes the fear hits us out of nowhere. We’ll be out on a walk and suddenly realize there will be two drooly faces to wipe…(not to mention two dirty butts).
We realize that once this baby gets here, making us a party of four, we won’t be making any kind of reservations or leaving the house period. The hubby already scoffs at how much stuff is required just to make a simple outing to the park. Weighted down with multiple bags on his arms and the stroller in tow, he asks if the amount of stuff will double with the new addition. Duh! Like with everything else, it will become our new normal I guess.
This wasn’t exactly planned nor was it unplanned but we’re very excited for our growing family. Sure we have our moments of “what the hell are we thinking?!?!” but the thought of our daughter having a sibling so close in age eases those fears. At least until she’s a teenager and wants nothing to do with her brother or sister (or her parents, for that matter). Did I mention I was going to have myself committed by the time she hits thirteen anyway? A nice padded room with no sharp objects, just a bed and a pillow. That sounds like heaven!

Congratulations! When I was pregnant with my second, I worried about the smallest detail of how life would be with two and it’s actually been a lot easier than I was worried it was going to be. They adjusted to each other quite well and even with sharing a room, it has worked out well. Schedules have meshed easier than I thought they would and it just seemed like the little one blended into our family without any strife at all. I hope it is the same for you! And September is a great month to have a baby, that’s when my first daughter was born. I love the fall! 🙂
Thanks Carolyn! You’ve given me some hope as I’m starting to worry how our lives are soon to be turned upside down. Now that it’s so close has it really started to sink in. : ) Hoping our transition to a family of 4 is as smooth as yours was!
Ditto to the last comment! Congrats and September is a fabulous month to have a baby as the weather is cool and the leaves change color, it is memorable!
Thank you SnowBlondie. Can’t believe the time is almost here. The time has been racing by.
