Family is one of the best things in the world. There are so many things that you need in your life, but family is up there with one of the most essential. First comes the family you grew up with, the ones who should be there to support you through anything. Then comes the family of your own that you start, and the pure love that it brings. It’s a different type of love, one that you won’t have felt before, and one that will only grow over time. But do you know what else will grow as that love does, the desire to have more. Unless you’re dead set on having only one child, then you’ll no doubt have more in the years to come. But although that love is so strong, and you have that burning desire to have another little baby in your arms, as your other one gets older, there are some troubles that will come with it. You have to be prepared for how much your life is going to change, because two is not as easy as one, and if your next would one mean you have three, well you’re in for a challenge. But if it’s a challenge you’re willing to accept, we’re here to help you with these great tips.
You’ll Forget What Space Is
Space is something that you won’t realise how much you valued until it was gone, and we promise you it will disappear as your clan grows. But there are ways of working around this, and making sure that you don’t keep buying new things, even though you might have some great items from your first child. But if your first has outgrown it and your second isn’t here yet, you should think about looking at convenient self storage solutions, just to house the items so they’re not crowding up your home. It means you’ll save so much money in the long run, and you’ll have that space in your home before the new one arrives, to figure out where everything should go!
You’ll Forget What Time Is
Time is definitely one that will go out of the window, and by time, we mean personal time. It’s something that all moms have to give up when a baby comes along, because they just demand so much of your time. But we know how important it is, so we suggest that you do something once a month, on your own or just you and your partner, so you can have that quality time without children running around. We’re sure someone in your family could do the honours of looking after them whilst you have only a few hours to yourself!
You’ll Forget What Money Is
Definitely one to forget about, because you can’t escape from the fact that you’ll have more mouths to feed and please. So money management becomes ever so important. If you feel like your finances would take too much of a hit, it might just be that you have to cut some corners to save money. E.g. not buying big brand items, sticking to store brand items!
