A little quality time.....

This past Sunday, a friend of mine asked me, "How are you handling two kids?" I told her fine, things were harder in the beginning, but things were more normal (?) now. The question she asked me has been marinating in my head all week and I realize now that life with two kids can be a little difficult now and then, but mostly I have a hard time balancing quality time with each of my kids. Right now, Cam demands more attention because of his age, but I'm starting to realize that the time I had with Drew alone was priceless. I feel sad that I don't have that kind of experience with my little Cam. I find myself trying to distract Drew so that I can spend some one-on-one time with Cameron. I feel guilty though! Do any of you moms with multiple children feel like this? I imagine that I'm not the only one....Anyway, I'm trying harder now to take advantage of anytime I have with either of my children, in hopes that we can foster deep, trusting and loving relationships. I love my kids more and more everyday...I know that everybody says that, but it's TRUE isn't it!? I feel so lucky to have my little people in my life, even when things are hard. Here are some pic's I took of my boys this week....Enjoy!

That was a good post. I must admit that sometimes I do get a little bummed that Hannah is siblingless (that word is wrong in every way..ha, ha)but I also know one day when my house is full of kids I'll miss those quiet days. Thanks for the reminder! Hey, do you wanna do lunch next week?
