Moments of Chaos

We are a week into this family of six thing. And while I did everything I possibly could to prepare our boys and selves for our newest addition, it’s still been a huge shock.

Somebody messaged me yesterday that one kid feels like two. Two feels like three. Three feels like five. And four feels like eight.

She was right.

The house suddenly feels smaller. And so much messier. The clutter is insane. Everyone is always hungry.

The dogs nails feel louder on the hardwood floor. Naps feel shorter. And everyone always needs me. I feel a little stretched thin.

It’s been a lot.

I call it moments of chaos. At one point yesterday everyone was screaming and I didn’t know who to help.

And then it calmed down. And my toddler found a way to sit in my lap while I nursed and Sawyer played baseball with his Dad and Cooper sat near us watching trains.

It was calm. And for 5 minutes I thought I can do this.

Beginnings are hard. But we are figuring it out. Slowly.
