They didn’t talk back, give me attitude, or refuse to eat their veggies.
Those were the days, my friends.
With four competing voices looking for their place in the family, it can be ridiculous trying to accommodate them without going insane.
It makes me miss the days when I simply cuddled them and fed them Stage 1 Gerber® Good Start® Infant Formula.
There are few things more depressing than feeling like a failure as a mother, and with all the nonsense out there, it was easy to fall into the trap that if you don’t breastfeed, you aren’t a good mother.
After letting all those feelings go, life was so much better for both me and the girls. No more hungry babies. No more angry mommy.
There was also the bonus of more bonding time with daddy, who could get up in the night and have more one-on-one time with each girl. He loved that, regardless of the lateness of the hour.
Mostly because I want them to be little babies again.
Ugh, the time goes by too quickly! Not fair!
But, regardless of their occasional pickiness, they are growing strong and healthy and eating far more foods than I ever did growing up.
I thank their father for that, he’s like a vacuum, eats all the things.
I’m just over here like gimme all the sugar, yo.
