Out of the Fog

Since having Noah I have felt like I was living in this fog. Having Noah was so much easier than it was when I had Ashton, so I felt like I recovered faster than I did the first time. Adjusting to having two kids at home was a little harder.
I was feeling guilty because now I am staying at home Ashton wasn't able to go to daycare anymore, he loved being there. He had gotten to the point where when we would drive down the road to Becky's house he would recognize it and get really excited. He would run in and give Becky huge hugs. He loved playing with all the kids being at home with mom all day is not as much fun. I know that so many people look down on daycare, but I think that it has a lot of benefits. I am grateful that I am able to stay at home and raise my boys I am lucky to have this opportunity.
Getting no sleep was not helping the situation either, I was so tired all the time. Everyone says to sleep when the baby is sleeping, but it isn't that simple when you have a toddler running around also. I would put a movie on for Ashton, nurse Noah and lay down on the couch and fall asleep with Noah next to me and Ashton crawling all over me.
Now here I am three months later and I am now use to no sleep and I don't need to take a nap everyday, which is awesome. I feel like myself again which is nice
