    Haha … love this! My daughter is recovering from being quite sick and had a rough day similar to this on sunday. She too had too much/ not enough milk, and her sister looked at her or touched her way too much! She’s 6 next week! ?

    I literally laughed out loud for most of these. my son is 6 months old now. I wonder what joys lay ahead for me in this regard. Knox is so adorable!

    Ahhh thank you for this 🙂 Made my day by giving me a good laugh as well as knowing I AM NOT ALONE!!! My little boy will be 3 in April (and his 1 year old sister is starting way quicker with the ‘vloer-moers’ than he ever did! They are conspiring against me I swear!)

    Also looking back thinking of the times I got mad about the similar situations feeling like a bad mom for not handling them better. Today I will be better and more patient and have a laugh when all the chaos subsides and the kiddos are asleep.
