Going from having a child to having children has already been a big adjustment, and I don't even actually have two yet.
Wouldn't it be great to just go from child to childs?
"I have childs." Sounds kind of easy.
But childREN? OY. Phew. Sigh. *Reaching for Tylenol*
Double stroller? Two car seats? YIKES.
I had this weird moment on the way home from my friend's house the other night. A moment in which I ending up just plain bawling for what I foresee as the loss of something very special for myself and my daughter.
My only child. My only daughter.
We've spent these 2 and 1/2 years together, almost inseparable. We went through so much together - elimination diet, sleep wars, two broken bones, and the ups and downs of toddlerdom (sheesh, I sound like I'm making a speech at her graduation party and she's ONLY TWO!).
But it seems so odd to think that she won't have my full attention. That I won't be able to just plop down on the floor, or sit quietly and read to her like we used to do. And while I know my heart will grow to love both my children, there's a part of me that's sad to lose those little moments that my daughter and I have.
How was your transition from child to children? Was there jealously? Regression? A feeling of loss?
And I'm still here, with child, so make sure you enter my baby pool and check out the HILARIOUS finalists to my "Quote your In-laws" contest. Seriously, I promise at least a mild chuckle if not a hearty laugh.
