I've been thinking about how different things are this time than when Joshua was born. Oh, many things are the same, but in addition to being much more comfortable and confident with ourselves as parents, we're also much more connected here in Madison.
This weekend we were blessed with friends who kept our kiddos for a couple of hours so we could get dinner and a bit of uninterrupted "us" time. It was so refreshing to be able to have a conversation without sharing it with a 2 year old or trying to calm a fussy baby. :-) As much as we love our kids, it's nice to have a chance to remember how much we love hanging out with each other as people not just "mommy" and "daddy".
Tonight we had friends over for dinner. It was a bit chaotic at times with an infant, 1 year old, and 2 year old keeping us all hopping, but great to have friends in the same life-stage that understand what we're going through day in and day out.
We appreciate how so many people have stepped up to help with whatever we've needed over the past couple of months and feel so grateful to have such good friends!
Not much is new here, just still trying to figure out how to accomplish everything that needs to get done in a day while keeping happy kids and staying sane. :-)
