Having two kids has felt like such a weird transition, and let me explain why. We were so used to having just Kennedy for so long, and it was the absolute normal, that I never knew how we were going to be able to bring another little one into our tribe and things still feel right. Well, once little Madison made her way to this world, just like all moms of 2+ kids say, your heart grows enormously and the love just continually grows so much– I have completely felt this way, and for the most part, everything along the way with Maddie as a baby had been a treat rather than a challenge, like a first baby usually seems.
I say all of this, because the one thing that had heightened my anxiety about having two kids has 100% been traveling. We haven’t really done any since Madison has came, other than an hour away, but this trip to Florida to visit my family has had my anxiety level on a scale of 1-10, at about a 35. Trying to make sure you have everything you need, along with keeping both children happy and entertained, along with as comfortable as they are at home has made me so stressed!! It doesn’t help that the little one has had a cold/teething, but the trip has thrown her off of her routine that she thrives on, and Lordy bee, she’s let us know she’s not happy with us! We’re making the best of it though, and hoping this sun will show its shiny face for us a little while we’re here!
