the other day i was feeling really bad that i didn't get to spend much time with lyla during the day. savio was having a hard time and needed to nurse a lot, so that pretty much planted me on the couch trying to stay calm while trying to calm him. which means lyla spent most of her day in front of the tv. she was in such a good mood and wanting to laugh and play games and sing songs, so i did what i could, but still felt bad.
marco decided to take her as his date to his work christmas party. so when she woke up from her nap i got her all dressed up and she was so excited. she kept saying she wanted to go to the party until they left.
after they left i was so happy for her. she was so excited and felt so special.
i'm still trying to find that balance that gives both kids the individual attention that they need and want. i didn't realize it would be this hard.
i am so thankful for my husband. he is such a good partner. we are pretty good at teamwork.... 'tag, you get this one i'll get that one' ... he comes home from work and is usually pretty tired, but always ready to help me out. i don't know what i would do without him.
