The Eye of the Tiger

I’m so tired of everyone telling me how bad things are going to get.  

  • “Just wait…” 
  • “For now it’s easy, but not for long.”
  • “Enjoy it while you can, because it’s going to be a nightmare.”

Yea I get it. The second kid is harder. I mean listen I have a few college degrees… two is more than one. I understand the mathematics behind having a second child. But listen, I got this. I think we did a pretty damn good job with the first one. Can he be a pain in the butthole sometimes, of course… does he annoy me when he asks for the lights on, and then off, and then on, and then off… yeah… a little annoying I admit it. But listen he’s not even three yet. I’m ok with that. 

I’m sure things aren’t going to be easy forever. I’m sure I’ll look back at this blog and curse myself. But for now… things are running like a well oiled machine… I got this… every morning I wake up… stare these two kids right in there beady little eyes and quite the prophet Rocky Balboa: “You ain’t so bad, you ain’t so bad, you ain’t nothin’… I ain’t even breathin’ heavy.”

What my mornings look like these days..

One thought on “The Eye of the Tiger

  1. With ❤️ Love in your heart it isn’t hard, it’s love. Yes it’s hard at times but when the love u feel comes through it’s easier. With a great partner and family it makes for less work. It takes a village!

    Putting the small moments of time into their day is make positive long lasting deposits into their hearts.

    One thing I think every parent wants, is for their kids to always want to come home even when their 30 to visit because it’s HOME and SAFE and LOVING. Blessings each day, so happy you note them!!!

    Don’t listen to that talk. Smile and wave like a king and queen. You guys got this!!!

    Gracefully learning as you go.
