My friend Katie and I met because our boys were in Mommy and Me swim class together. We discovered that we had lots in common, and so did our boys (who are only 2 months apart). She was pregnant with her second baby at the same time as me. We were due a mere one day apart! Our new baby boys are nearly 6 months old and we’re just finally getting the kiddos together to play.
Jack was immediately taken with the dog, Dutchess.
The kids had such a good time, and it certainly doesn’t hurt for me to have a mom to talk to who is dealing with the same developmental stages at the same time! Juggling two is a different experience than learning to adapt to having one, so having someone else saying “I barely survived the first 3 months!” is pretty darn validating.
I’m not trying to scare you, the first 3 months are really not all that bad. Especially because you already ‘know what you’re doing’. But the first 3 months with two at home, all day, no breaks, is pretty chaotic. Chaos and I… we’re like oil and water; we’re not friends.
