Let the games begin!

Popular sport in my house these days is competitive mommy-crying. Two little girls crying to see who can drive mommy up the wall first!

I hate to complain because I know this time when they are little slips away from us before we know it, but it can be so nerve-racking at times! Little one doesn't want to be put down so she's napping in the moby wrap on front and the bigger one is in the ergo on my back, trying to sleep but keeping herself awake with a hacking cough and molar-teething pain! The house, or rather our three rooms, look like a tornado passed through (kind of a perpetual state these days). Little projects (such as the birth announcement cards that will now be 2 months late) I've tried to work on are scattered here and there (and we thought we could keep the desk tidy this time!!). The laundry mound is growing into a mountain. Dinner has not been started. Basically it's about survival right now.
Well there are my complaints in a nutshell.

Getting Started

I've angst-ed about starting a blog. What will I say that is of interest to anyone else? How does one begin? What if it just ends up being a long rambling of thoughts? I'm not one to post personal updates on Facebook every few hours, or even every day. I don't feel like everyone needs, or wants, to know what I'm currently feeling or doing. But then when I do post something, and people respond, or 'like' it, it feels like a connection has been made. And that's a good thing. It's also something I often yearn for these days, while I'm so wrapped up in figuring out this mommy-of-two business that the outside world seems to almost be in another dimension. So I'll try out blogging and see how it feels. I won't get large chunks of time to write but I'll steal moments here and there. Right now, my 16-month old daughter is in the Ergo on my back, napping. She has yet another cold and just starts coughing when she lies down, so upright on my back is the place to be to get sleep. And now I hear my 7-week old calling from the other room, awaking from her nap...
