I am not sure how it happened but I am now the mom of an official 5 and 2.5 year old. Crazy how time goes so fast! If you blink for a second, you might miss it! I like updating my blog every few months with my life with two series. It is fun to see how things change with raising two kids in such a short period of time.
When I last updated, I told you all how life with 2 was very hard. I have to say although parenting two kids still has its challenges, it has gotten much easier in the last month or so. We have gotten to the point where Zane and Hayley actually play together. I never in a million years thought they would actually play, without tearing each other hair out, but we are definitely improving in that department. I actually can sit down and read a book, even if it is for 10 minutes at a time. Heck…This is 10 more minutes than I had 6 months ago.
While Hayley is really such a delightful 5 year old (I am so lucky), Zane is full force into his terrible 2’s! Thank g-d the boy is cute, because I am put through the wringer with him each and every day. He LOVES temper tantrums and ever more so, he loves time out. I kid you not when I tell you that when he does something wrong, he knows it, and will proceed to sit in our time out chair. Not so sure time out works with him,lol! The temper tantrums are very challenging but I know they are short lived. Hayley had severe temper tantrums at that age too, and now she barely has one. Maybe if she breaks something or something is taken away from her, but otherwise she is completely even keeled! I just keep telling myself…We will get past the terrible 2’s…We will get past the terrible 2’s.
However, I see a light at the end of the tunnel. Things are definitely getting easier each day and the bond forming between Hayley and Zane is so remarkable. Now I have to think to myself…Do I want a third kid? That is the question of the day:)
