Take this quiz and then decide!
(this is all meant in fun!)
1) Has your current child begun sleeping through the night?
-If you answered YES, then my vote is to wait on number two! Get that sleep, mama! Enjoy it now!
-If you answered NO, eh, go ahead with number two. You're already living on two hours of sleep a night
and a steady diet of caffeine and caffeine.
2) How many arms do you have?
-If you answered TWO, then that's clearly not enough arms. Wait until you sprout a third and fourth...and
then MAYBE you'll be ready.
-If you answered TWO, then you've got this. You'd be surprised at the number of things you can do with
one arm taking care of each child. Hell, before you know it you'll be nursing, making dinner, cleaning up
a bucket of dog food that your toddler just spilled on the floor, and talking to your best friend (and
actually paying attention) all at the same time!
3) Essay Question: You're changing the baby's diaper. S/he projectile poops at the same time that the
toddler learns how to scale the baby gate and chase the cat upstairs while holding a handful of toothpicks.
WHAT DO YOU DO???? You have 1.5 seconds to answer this question.
4) You have company coming over in 30 minutes. You need a shower, the toddler is covered in peanut
butter, the baby is screaming, your Mother In Law is calling you, and the dog just pooped in your
shoe. List these in the order in which you would attend to them. You have 3 seconds.
5.) What's that? What's that? What's that? What's that? What's that? What's that?
Well...what are those things?
6.) Final question: Do you have the cleverness to improvise elaborate photos, baby books, Christmas gifts
for Grandma and Grandpa that DON'T look like they were thrown together in an effort to make sure
you appear to have had enough time and interest in making sure things are somewhat "even" between the
two kids? Because you KNOW you went to town on this stuff with your first.
So...what's your conclusion? Leave your answers in the comments if you wish!!!
