Looking Back: October 2009

Each month I like to flip through some of my old journals to see what was going on that time of the year. October 2009 was an interesting time in our life: Jasper had yet to be born, and we were babysitting our niece Sophia for a weekend. I wrote,

At one point during the weekend (it was Friday night), I started crying because I didn’t know if I could handle the responsibility. I thought to myself, ‘On Monday, our life will be back to normal.’ And when it hit me that the normal I know will only last a couple more months, I panicked!”

Interestingly enough, I’m in the same boat, two years later. Three weeks in to having a second child, the other night I panicked when I realized, WE HAVE TWO KIDS!!!

But here’s the next sentence in that particular journal entry:

“But by Sunday night, I didn’t want to take Sophia back to her parents! I had so much fun snuggling with her, giggling, learning, and watching her grow.”

So while the panic hasn’t necessarily gone away completely (I mean, I HAVE TWO KIDS NOW!), I know that in a few weeks from now, this will be old hat and I won’t be able to imagine life any other way.

    And then you’ll be writing posts next year how your two kids are driving you absolutely crazy and you wish they were back to being newborns and not mobile.
