Let's face it. Meltdowns are usually not much fun. Drool does make a mess. Most Dads I've met love to throw their sons up in the air because it's how they can get them to belly laugh and that usually doesn't sit well with moms. Toddlers need extra attention and actually...they typically demand it. And it's hard to be enough for everyone in the family at the same time when the baby is crying, the toddler is tantrum-ing and both parents are just ready for a break.

Life with babies and toddlers are stressful, tiring and full of moments when we think we may not make it to tomorrow. Being on the other side of that stage in life, I can tell you this...don't wish it away. Don't miss all the beauty in the chaos. It's a little difficult to manage some days, sure. But these days are rich. Enjoy the reality of where you are with your kids and family and smile. 

A wise friend once told me, "I just keep reminding myself, I'm gonna miss this". Having that perspective in the midst of the chaos creates joy and gratitude for the moment. We can all use a healthy dose of that!
