I'm Not Ready for Another Toddler!

6 Days till Toddlerhood

If you haven’t heard yet my baby girl is going to be turning a year old, therefore come May she will be moving in to join all the other kids here on Toddler Times.

Making me a mother of not one, but two toddlers until my Ben rounds out his birthday next May, as in 2013.

You would think I would be totally fine with this considering I had two toddlers until December but, not at all. No dice! I am just not ready for it again. I wish I could rewind a year and be giant pregnant wondering when my daughter was going to appear. I am just not ready to have two active toddlers again.

Addison is on the verge of walking any day and Benjamin well, the other day he decided going head first down our swing set slide is a great idea. The way he landed the first time I am very lucky he didn’t break a tooth.

I am a constant nervous wreck and ball of nerves.

Now it is going to be doubled, just in time for my oldest son to head off on a school bus for public school in the fall. I think with all of this I may have some kind of nervous breakdown worrying about all of them.

Does it ever end? Or does it just keep getting worse with every child?

Everyone always said that there is a great deal of post partum anxiety, but it is mainly in the first couple months after your baby is born. I think this really doesn’t fall within that window anymore. Maybe I am just becoming that crazy neurotic mom?

I really don’t want to be that mom. Maybe I should see a doctor before I get too overwhelmed?

Have you been there?

I could really use some words of encouragement!
