We went from 0 to 2 kids real fast. It’s almost like we had twins. Except our “twins” have a 5 year age gap, one has SPD, the other has Type 1, I got Type 1 in the mix of it all, and we were homeschooling all in the snap of a finger because suddenly we had a 6 year old overnight.
My start to motherhood has looked different than most. I don’t really know what it’s like to have just one child. We kind of dove head first into the deep end, part by choice and part just shoved in. Okay, so maybe we didn’t dive in, but more like fumbled and belly flopped in.
Now that Zola is in school, it’s the first time I’ve just had one child at home and suddenly it’s so much quieter (kind of). And it’s been so sweet for me and Ollie to have time together, just the two of us, while Zola is at school having the time of her life being with people all day long.
I’m still questioning how I’m old enough to have a third grader, but we’re rolling with it. 👊🏼
