Parenting kids I have realized is like doing a different puzzle everyday with a different level of difficulty and sometimes there are puzzle pieces missing. You just have to go with it and adapt. - Sarah Robbins

How would you describe the new + unexpected life with a newborn in a few words
It’s been a year now since I have had my second child and it has felt like forever but also like yesterday since I had her. When I had my first I felt like I had no idea what I was doing or what to expect, and there was no light at the end of the tunnel. When I had my second it felt much easier. Very tired the first few weeks but just knowing that I needed to meet her and figure out what she needed at what time and what all her little sounds and cries mean at what time, gave me peace.

Nothing will happen perfectly and you have to take the small wins and notice the special moments in the day. 

How did you survive
I survived on enjoying the small moments in our night feedings where it was quiet and just the two of us. To the help of my mom friends & family doing preschool drop off and pick up. I also survived when my husband would take over from the 7pm - 11pm-ish shift so I could sleep.

If only you knew then what you know now
Ask for and accept help no matter how small. Also, everything is a phase and always listen to your intuition.
