So she’s here! Baby number 2 born exactly 20 months after my Xavi. She’s now 6 months and I’m finally starting to get my shit together because life with 2 kids under 2 has been cray cray!
So my baby has been around this big bad earth for whole year and half… say what?!! Sometimes I can’t remember what life was like before he was around but then again sometimes I feel like holy shit stop growing up so fast!
This pregnancy is very different to the one with Xavi.. quite simply it SUCKS! Not sure if it’s from the fact now I’m running after an active toddler who also is at an equally frustrated stage while he is learning so many new things or I had it far too easy with Xavi and mother nature is now balancing things out by making my life a misery! Here’s a list of the key differences between the devil pregasaurus now vs. the angel pregasaurus then.
Yep Xavi has been busy working through his list and is going to be a big brother! The picture is quite old taken at Xavi’s first birthday cake smash shoot so I’m quickly approaching my third trimester and officially shitting it! Due in April, I’ll have 2 kids under 2 dealing with a toddler about to embark on his terrible twos and a crazy crying breast sucking newborn! Oh crap what were we thinking?!
So we’ve all probably made a promise that we shall not be one of those mums that gives our little angels (and not yet tantrum throwing toddlers) our phone or any tablet just for a moments peace or to stop an earth shattering meltdown of tears, especially in public! I was one of those pre mums who didn’t have a clue why so many mums did it!
Just when I thought I was done with teething the next tooth painstakingly comes through. And Xavi has always been a bad teether showing the typical symptoms and a whole lot more. But no one warned me how much worse it’s gonna get past 1… I mean how many molars does a kid even need exactly?! At 15 months old I’m definitely getting the hang of spotting a tooth coming so below is a list of Xavi’s top symptoms and my top remedies for each. They help Xavi at a minimum most of the time but hopefully one tip will help your kid better than my little teething monster.
So ladies I know you’ve all dealt with this at least 50 times with your other half. Apparently there is a disease so bad that the pain is worse than any other illness or pain a woman or even child has to deal with. The symptoms? Runny nose, chills, mild fever occasionally and general muscle aches and pains. All sounds very similar to a normal cold or flu right? Yep damn right! Except for men the symptoms are somehow far worse, to the point that they say “babes I’m dying.”
