Simcha says you will one day be able to leave the big kids home with the littles while you run errands.
Kendra doesn’t know how to shower with just her littles underfoot.
The lady down the street from me says that little kids aren’t outside a lot because they are too little to do it on their own.

So, stop comparing yourself to moms who have big kids.
We have littles. Our babies can’t do the things big kids do, so we can’t do the things those moms do.
They say this is the hardest part for a reason. It’s full of diapers and trying and failing to get out of the house and not being able to shower and feeling trapped inside and wishing just one kid could buckle themselves and being responsible for every single need for every single person in the house.
This isn’t to discourage you. It’s to remind you (and ME!) that this is normal. This is hard. This is ok.
What makes it discouraging is when you compare yourself to moms with big kids.
We have littles and its hard. But were doing it. So we rock.
