What I Didn't Know Then, But Understand Now

You find a rhythm, your relationship with your partner mends after you realize just how big a new baby in your life can change every aspect, then you find out number two is on the way.

 

The transition from one child to two is hard.


I remember a combination of joy and sadness. Wondering if my first would be emotionally stable after the arrival of a new baby. I mourned the time I would miss due to morning sickness, exhaustion and the time required for newborn care. I hoped that there would be enough of me to make them strong individuals, that were kind and smart.

What I discovered, is that their personalities require different things, each child receives their own piece of you. That piece isn't divided and shared among them, one child missing out from another, you keep giving of yourself. And in the right mindset, it's beautiful.
