So this is what it’s going to be like.

I just got a glimpse of what it’s like to have two small children.   And let me say, I’m scared.  Very scared.   I watched one of the Mini’s friends this morning.   A little girl, who is the same age.  They know each other well, and both were very well behaved and played nicely together.   I figured since she was here over lunch, I wouldn’t torture her by making her watch the Mini eat “noonoos.”   So I had to get lunch ready.  With two kids.   It was only slightly hectic, and went a little something like this:

“Mini, take the crayon out of your ear. We don’t put crayons in our ear.  Silly girl, don’t eat the crayon, that’s dirty.   *fishes crayon out of toddlers mouth*.   Don’t run with crackers in your mouth, both of you.”

The five minutes it took to make mac and cheese was the most stressful of my life and folks, I gave birth.

Now if I could only now get the Mini to actually take a nap.  After watching two kids all morning, I need the break more than I usually do.

Hats off. I may have twins (and watch a third sometimes), the only thing that gets me through lunch every day is the knowledge that a nice long naptime follows.

I am taking the head-in-the-sand approach re: having two kids. La la la la la…..
