Whoever said pregnancy would be easy the second time around probably didn’t have to care for a toddler during all three trimesters. But I can’t complain, my little guy has been pretty helpful around the house and Jeff and I have a tag team match going on. I deal with the tantrums during the day and Jeff handles them at night.
To keep sane, I try to think of all the things that put a smile on my face:
An extra 5 minutes in the shower.
Kisses from daddy.
Hugs from baby.
A clean baby.
A clean home.
Slipping into clean bed sheets.
Walking down the store aisles.
Any excuse to out of the house.
Cuddling up with a good book while the baby rests.
Sleeping in for another 5 minutes.
I’m sure there are more but I can’t seem to think of any at the moment.
What keeps you going on off days?

Each of those can resonate with me (except my babies are way bigger)! A glass of wine and quality "alone" time with my hubs definitely put a smile on my face!
Some wine and the hubs is always a good mix. 😉
I love clean sheets!! I can relate to many of the things on this list actually! 🙂
Clean sheets are my weakness. I get so excited every week after changing them that I practically count down the hours to bedtime.
