No one warns you that with your second child you won't be able to do as much with the first kiddo. Most of my evenings are spent laying on the couch watching my hubby play with kiddo #1 or napping. I used to be able to wrestle and have a fun time with her...now I just can't. I hate having these limitations. I didn't really think about that when we talked about trying for kiddo #2. Luckily I am starting to have more energy but still cannot wrestle with kiddo #1. It makes me sad. I realized the other day that I am missing months and months of quality wrestle time with her. So I was determined to figure out alternatives of things to do. Luckily, Libby loves crafts - LOVES THEM. So I bought some more things to do with her that doesn't involve physical harm to me, kiddo #2 in my belly, and her. So now we have new play-doh, cookie cutters and other random items to use with the play-doh, and stamps. Oh the stamps. This kid has been begging for them for months. Seriously, months. I'm not kidding. So now she has some of her very own. We spent nearly an hour playing with them this morning. It was really great. She was happy and so was I. Finally, I found a way around my limitations (ahem, exhaustion). So thank goodness for her love of crafts!
