This will be me after late October 2010…
Yes, folks, it’s true. The Lovell family is expanding by one more! John & I have always wanted at least two kids, & we are on our way! We are excited, thrilled, nervous & scared (or at least I am!) all at the same time! Becoming a parent has been such an awesome journey, & we are excited to add one more to our bunch. We are very grateful that God has chosen to allow us to continue growing our family!
So now I need your ideas. Especially you parents of more than one kid. I have all the gear. We haven’t even stored all the baby stuff in the attic yet. It’s just a short trip upstairs to get it all down. We have a bouncer, bassinet, mobiles, receiving blankets, all the stuff that most parents find a necessity for bringing home a new baby.
I just need the know-how.
I realize the fact that I probably won’t figure out the details now-how to take two kids out in public. How to occupy both kids’ attention at the same time. How to feed one & entertain the other. How to get dinner served. I suppose all that comes eventually maybe after the second one gets here.
Thinking back, I didn’t have a clue how to do any of these things before Faith arrived either. But I figured it out.
Now, John, Faith & I have it down to a science. Most days anyway. 😉
So there’s our news! We are becoming Lovell Party of Four. It is a season of excitement & change for our household. I can’t wait to see how God uses this to mold & change our family even more.
I’d like to hear from you.
What are some of your “words of wisdom” for raising two?
