My Toddlers Are Sucking The Life Out Of Me

I love my kids with all of my heart. I really do. So don’t get the wrong impression from this post. I have a 3 year old son and a 1 year old daughter and they are truly my world. HOWEVER…they are sucking the life out of me.

I remember when my son was born how exhausted and wiped out I was. The baby stage with him was rough. But once he turned 1, things got easier.

We established patterns and schedules and I felt like I had this mom thing down to an art.


Then I had my daughter. And I thought I hit the jackpot. She was sleeping through the night at 3 months, barely cried, was SO easy. I figured once she turned 1, it would be complete smooth sailing from there.


Boy was I wrong.

Having two toddlers under one roof, especially during this time in life, has been INSANE.

They won’t share. They throw their food. They both have tantrums (sometimes at the same time!).

I’m potty training one while chasing the other one down. It just never stops!


There are days when my husband gets home that I just have to leave the house for the sake of leaving the house. 

There are days when I let them destroy the house because I just can’t keep up with them.

There are days I never get out of my pajamas because I don’t get a second to breathe. 


I feel like I have aged 20 years since my daughter was born. But you know what? It melts away with a smile, a hug, her giggling at my dog, watching my 3 year old son read to my daughter and kiss her boo boos.


The world is a hectic place right now, and so is life under my roof. But I am doing my best to take the time and remember that small things matter and that life is beautiful. 


Parenting really is the most demanding and rewarding thing in life. It’s worth every grey hair growing in my head and pounds I’ve gained from stress eating around the corner where they can’t see me.


If you’re going crazy being stuck at home with your kiddos, know you’re not alone and be real with yourself. Be forgiving to yourself. Be patient with yourself. We’re all going to get through this!
