My facebook post many days may look something like this:
I love my kids! They are so cute and I love watching them laugh together!
What it doesn’t say behind it is:
Man today was hard. I swear they were battling to see who could have the most temper tantrums today or maybe throw the most at me (whether attitude or Hot Wheels)
But in that moment, we capture a memory and share it with the world! Look at my wonderful life!! And a wonderful life it is….but it’s not easy. (If you follow me on FaceBook, you actually will see some of the 2nd type of posts…I’ve contemplated one with a for sale sign in front of them…? Haha)
Having a teen and a tot is a unique experience. I often tell people “Yes, a decade apart is the way to go! You have a built in babysitter and it’s like having two singletons” But—it presents a unique set of challenges as well. I may list them all in another post, but I want to focus on one in particular today.
It can feel isolating!
