Honestly – it wasn’t all that romantic. In fact, if you’ve ever wondered when the honeymoon phase is over, the answer is “After the birth of your second child”. It starts to taper off after the first baby, but by the second child, you’re just too tired for the honeymoon phase to go on any longer. That, and you don’t even have time to think, let alone get very romantic.
Not only did the two babies put a slight damper on our favorite holiday, but we are entertaining that winter demon, the flu. Even the tiniest baby has it, poor thing. Anyway, I got two hours of sleep last night because both daughters needed much help and cuddling. Poor little Sophie’s nose is so stopped up that she struggles with each and every breath.
Much resting is on order for us today!
