Mommy of Two

Well, Pops is back at work, teaching 9th & 12th this year. Every morning this week Rowan has asked, "Where's Pops? Golfing?" All summer if he was out of the house before she woke that's where he was, but I answer no he's at work... She misses him. So do I. But it is also kind of nice to be back to our little routine, my kids and I.
I am back at the shop, only three days on the floor for now, the Pippsters want hours and I am loving my family time. I am so grateful to be able to work Pippi's part time while my kids are little, I miss them the little bit of time that we are apart.
Being a mom of two is a whole new adventure.

I find my largest struggle to be within myself. I want to give them both all the love and attention they deserve, and think I do, but I sure put my little Zo down more than I ever put baby Rowan down. And Rowan of course can talk and tell me what she needs. And I don't have the luxury of cooing over and gazing at my little Zo all day like I did with  Ro. I worry, will the lack of one on one time negatively affect my little babe? I still wear her quite a lot, like I did Rowan, I love her and sing to her (or both of them). But I worry. On the other hand she is going to grow up always knowing the joy of having a sister so I do feel very good about that, and Rowan is very sweet to her.

Well, I guess part of the job is to worry so that's okay.  I will post again soon with Pippi pics, we have tons of great new socks in!!!
