31 Days of Parenting Littles: Adjust
I'm having to adjust to life with 3 now for real. Raoul went back to work this week, so it's time to figure out our new "normal". So far it's not as bad as I was afraid it might be. And by bad I actually more mean "difficult".
It's those moments when I'm sitting on the couch with an nursing pillow and newborn on my lap, while Josiah grabs DVD's off the shelf or throws a book across the room and I feel helpless. It's the times I'm holding Anneke, picking up Josiah, and have Zak tugging at my arm for something. It's those moments of being pulled in 2 or three (or goodness- even more if you count housework and personal needs) directions at once and trying to triage the situation and figure out what needs to be done in what order and who could possibly help with one thing while you tackle another. Zak has been a great sport helping clean up after Josiah or bringing nappies to the bin or guarding Anneke from Josiah's overzealous cuddles and literal take on "baby-sitting.
Yes, we're all adjusting, and the next few months will bring even more things to adjust to (possibly starting a photography business, starting homeschooling in a more formal way, etc).
