I’M FINDING IT HARD, yes I said it I’m finding life as a mum of two difficult at the minute. If you follow me on Snapchat @shapesndshadows you’ll know my little man who is now 7 months old was born with a condition called Acute Aplasia which I will have a blog post all about soon. This is where the baby is born with open wounds on the head. This condition is very rare here in Ireland. Cases can be mild to serious. He also suffered really bad with reflux up until he was 4 months old. It was a long road but finally we got him sorted. I am also going to have a post, talking all things reflux and how we survived.
With all of that going on I’m also trying to deal with a toddler who is most certainly going through the terrible twos and life in general and I have been finding it hard. But like my mother recently said to me. Amy you are not super women. Who cares if the house is dirty , the clothes aren’t washed and she is exactly right. I’m far too organised and I’m trying to do it all.
Between looking after the baby and the restless nights to a tantrum two year old. Keeping the house clean which is pointless with a two year old because it’s only clean and she has it upturned within minutes. It’s like a constant cycle and some days I feel like I will never leave the house. I myself am still trying to recover from delivery 6 months on and all the stress at the start of my sons life. My iron levels have been super low since giving birth and I also got a slight bit of vertigo.
The reason why I wrote this post is to tell people its okay to feel like you need help. It’s okay to say you’re struggling and not coping. I have my good days and I have my bad days like we all do. tiredness , tantrums & arguments all aside I wouldn’t have it any other way. I know its only temporary until little man starts to sleep more and it will all be a lot smoother in my household.
I hope you can relate in some way or found this blog post helpful.
Until next time.
