Now that Bear is in school I 've gotten to spend so much more time with this lovely little. And it has been an absolute blast.
I'm not going to lie, only having one child to care for, Monday through Thursday is nice. It's become our special girl's time. We go out to lunch, shopping, check out our parks and Library. Zo is my partner in crime and I really cherish these moments we get where I can be hers, completely, with undivided attention. The moments seem so fleeting, especially when compared to Bear having me all to himself the first 2 years of his life. There's definitely something to be said about going from your first child to multiple children.
You are always there, tending to everyone, but spending quality one on one time with all of your littles is difficult and can definitely leave a parent feeling a little exhausted come bed time.
Yet on the same wave length, I really miss having one on one moments with Bear that I haven't gotten since Zo-zo was born. I keep telling myself to get a sitter for Zo and pick Bear up from school for a date... It's a catch 22.
One of these days I might figure out the secret equation for spending alone time with both kids, but probably not today. There's not enough coffee flowing. So for now, I'm just going to enjoy my time with Thing 2 and not feel guilty about it.
