Two of my favorite people to stalk on Twitter, Ilana (@mommyshorts) and Kate (@andthenkate), teamed up today on Ilana's blog. Kate guest-posted about why she's happy with one child. Her daughter is about my daughter's age, and the Princess was an only child for a good 4 1/2 years before we made her into a sister, so it kind of made me think.
Because for awhile I really did think the Princess might be my one and only. One and done. And in some ways I was ok with that because the love? The joy? The amazingness? The Squinkies? How could that not be enough? And how could I ever love another person as completely as I love her?
But then the Monster happened, and honestly?
How could I have ever thought I was complete without him?
So here's my wordless (ish) Wednesday:
|One is fabulous.|
|One is precious and heartbreaking.|
|One makes me wrinkle my nose with laughter.|
|One is challenging and strong-willed and beautiful.|
One is perfect.
|But two? Oh my goodness. Two is twice as perfect.|
|Two is glee.|
|Two is best friends.|
|Two is hilarious.|
|Two is adventure.|
|Two is peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake and endless giggles.|
|Two is everything.|
