I started my “new job” today. (For those who don’t know I am watching my friend’s almost 3 month old little boy at her house while she works from home).
Today was interesting. It gave me an idea of what is in store for me when we have another baby.
The strange part? I felt weird holding an infant. It’s almost like I have forgotten what it felt like. Hailie is only 18 months old. They grow up WAY TOO FAST!
Most of the day was good. There were a few points where I was ready to pull my hair out and was asking myself what I was getting myself into. The baby was crying and Hailie was getting into everything as she typically does. It took me a good 15 minutes to get him calmed down while chasing her around. I felt awful when he was crying.
It was hard and tiring. I came home completely exhausted.
I have even more respect for you moms with more than one child now – especially those that are close in age!
I go back Wednesday. It’ll be easier since Hailie will be home with her Daddy and she was definitely the toughest part of the day.
