Surviving


It feels like surviving is all we've managed to do this last week. I know I said we were doing great and the adjustment was easier than expected. And it's true--we are doing just fine. Most of the time.

Then the evening arrives with all of its crying and chaos, at which point I want to find an empty bed and pair of earplugs so I can curl up under a comforter and sleep all my troubles away. Sadly, that is not an option. So instead Neil and I attempt to soothe a crying infant and meet the needs of a tired toddler.

The other night we were sitting on the bed, staring at the wall in utter exhaustion after both of our children were asleep (victory!). Then we had the following conversation:
S: What are you thinking about?
N: How hard this is.
S: Yep.
Then we went to sleep.

And that, my friends, pretty much describes my life right now.
