Another day, another repeat of diapers and wipes. Along with the millions of joys of parenthood come the gazillion challenges. I absolutely adore each of my boys but I wish someone would have warned me just how crazy this parenting ride would be. The roller coaster of challenges hit me quick. Just bringing a baby home from the hospital and hearing that first shiver of cries scared the bejeezus out of me. Needless to say, I haven’t had an ordinary day since before my boys where born. I quickly learned that accomplishing any task with a child is a feat in itself. But my biggest challenge has been going to the bathroom ALONE. A shower, a potty break, these kids don’t feel the need to make this easy. Try being home alone with a baby, sure you can leave them unattended in a crib. But your deed will be rushed and you might even leave the door cracked enough to listen for them. The toddler stage means a kiddo that will attempt to knock a door down to get to you. You can try to sneak to the bathroom and shut the door before they barge in. Or you can oblige to their intrusion and turn that potty break into a party. It’s a party in the bathroom most days but you weren’t invited my sweet boy.
Make the parenting challenges less challenging.
We are bombarded with products and gadgets that make parenting easier, but really what do we need? I fell head over heels in love with these must have items.
Comfy baby carrier: For those moments when baby needs some one on one time and you need to fold laundry. I never left home without my baby carrier. It was a must have when I had a toddler and a baby.
Excersaucer – activity center: Once they can sit up right these are magical. I would drag mine through the house when I needed to get things done. And the bathroom amazing when you need to take that much needed shower.
Video Monitor: Not only are monitors perfect for sleeping babies they also are perfect for little ones that like to play in their own room. Making dinner in the kitchen and having my little ones playing in the playroom didn’t scare me when I can constantly peak and listen in to them as I prepare meals without leaving the kitchen.
