Anyone want a 2 year old?

I think I'm going insane... or maybe I have been for awhile. I must have already been insane when we decided to try to have Andy, because having two kids under 2 is not always fun! It's not so bad when at least one of them is having a good day, but when they're both irritable it's a challenge. Hopefully tomorrow will be better than today was. Today was just exhausting... I think Matthew is FINALLY in bed for the night... I probably put him to bed about 20 or 30 times. I think now that Andy is sleeping and Matthew is almost asleep, I'm going to go have a bath. I really don't know how moms with more than 2 do it. Winona, if you read this... you're my idol... I WISH I could manage kids the way you do! I have no CLUE how you manage 5! I know for sure I wouldn't be able to manage 2... especially at Matthew's age. Anyway, I'm cutting this short... I'm exhausted.

My trick? I had the first 4 each three years apart. That made a huge difference! Having the girls so close together has been really hard. And honestly, I think 18 monhts-3 years is the hardest age of all. It does get easier!!! I promise. Hang in there.

And with the bedtime thing just remember to be consistent. Eventually he'll realize you're not going to give in. He has to know that YOU are in charge. I think you'll be pleasantly surprised that soon he will give up and just stay in bed after the first couple of times.

Stay calm...take one day at a time...sometimes just one minute at a time. lol
