032: The First Six Months with Two Kids


Raising one child is beyond busy, but add another into the mix and things get a little more hectic. Balancing schedules, sleep, breastfeeding, emotions, and our role as parents is a lot to consider and to figure out in the moment.

Every day I am learning something new about myself and my kids and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Life with two little people has been the most incredibly rewarding (and often challenging) gift, and I am so grateful to be their mama.
