Today is the last day of his paternity leave and he will be back to work as normal on Monday morning leaving me to work out a new routine with my two little boys.
These first two weeks have been magical and having the bloke around has meant I can enjoy those newborn baby snuggles, and let Archie sleep curled up on my chest. I can lay in bed and watch the little guy sleep and I can feed him as soon as he wants milk, however often that may be. It has also meant I can sit on the floor and do puzzles with Dylan, kick a football with him in the park and curl up on the sofa with him reading stories.

With the bloke returning to work though, it is all change and I am hoping that we cope with it well. I haven't quite worked out the logistics of getting the three of us up, dressed, fed and out the house at a reasonable time yet and I haven't worked out how my little milk monster and my energetic toddler will share my time but I know we will cope and that we will find our own ways and routine. It will never be as simple and easy as these last two weeks though and I can only imagine that cbeebies will play a much bigger role!

Today is the official end of our little honeymoon period although we have the weekend still to enjoy. I am both dreading the bloke going back to work and am also really excited to jump into my new role as mother to two! We have had a lovely day out today, fighting over who gets to push the double buggy and enjoying both boys napping at the same time with a lovely mocha and chocolate cake. We have kept both boys happy even when they were needing attention at the same time and been a family of four.
Wish me luck for Monday morning!
