The Perks of Having Two Kids

Having two kids has also been SO incredible. I was absolutely terrified to have more than one, but as soon as Max joined our family, it was like he’d been there all along. Here are some of the biggest perks I’ve found with having two kids:

Your heart doubles in size. You never have to worry about not loving a second baby as much as your first, because we as humans are capable of SO much love. I love my husband, and kids with everything I’ve got. The only way I can explain that is that my heart has grown with each new person in my life.

They always have someone to play with. My kids are still pretty small, but I love that they love to play together! This isn’t the case 100% of the time, but it’s pretty awesome that I can almost always count on my kids entertaining each other when I need to get stuff done. Its brought Ellie a greater sense of responsibility helping out and playing with her baby brother.

It chills you out as a parent. I’d like to think that I’ve always been a chill parent, BUT comparing my new parent self to my second child parent self, there’s a big difference. I’ve learned from my mistakes and become better in so many areas. I’ve also learned to let stuff go and enjoy parenthood a lot more.

To anyone thinking about having another baby or already having a second baby: It’s all going to be just fine. Having two kids can be crazy, but it is SO awesome.

Ellie and Max’s awesome Hug It Out shirts are from Mo Green Clothing Co. They have the best tees for siblings and parents! Matchy matchy all day long. On top of having super cute stuff, a portion of your purchase will go to a charity! These guys know how to run a good shop.

Have a great weekend friends!
