Sometimes there is some craziness with four kids. Sometimes? Who am I kidding? We are month in and it’s craziness most of the time.
But the Happy Mama Movement is here. And, while the craziness is there, life is way better when we embrace the happy; smile, take it in and love it.
My girls are adjusting to their new roles as big sisters, and I’m adjusting to them in their new roles as big sisters. I’m trying to embrace it. Trying to go beyond what I would normally allow and do and put some trust in them and their confidence.
The oldest has done an amazing job in her role. She wants to hold B all the time. Initially, this made me nervous. But, she had confidence, so I reluctantly handed her sister over. She asked for tips and what to do to help calm her down and make her happy. Even with E close by.
And just last night, she even got her to sleep! If you haven’t seen Atlanta, we are covered in snow and ice. And not prepared. Mr. Serious left work at 4pm. He took the bus, and eventually was stuck on a non-moving bus and walked to a coworkers house where he still is staying.
Last night at bedtime, B and E were both fussy. E needed bed. B wanted to be held. Big sister said “I got her mom.” And she did. She paced around the living room lighting bouncing her. I looked down the stairs, and she had her asleep in her arms.
My girls as sisters, helping me out, helping each other out, they make me happy. Embrace the help. Embrace the craziness that is sibling love and be happy!
