Life with two kids

Well things are finally calming down around here. We're finally not living out of boxes and I even managed to paint Charlie's room. My current project is the kid's playroom. I really wanted to do something fun without making it look cheesy. Finding time to paint is more of a challenge than I thought it would be. As many of you know I'm not a patient person so coming to the realization that it's going to take time to get this house like I have pictured in my head is driving me crazy. I know it will all come together some day but I'm ready for it all to be done. Anyway, speaking of crazy, my two year old is really testing my patience lately. She wines about everything. I know she's a girl but seriously I don't know how we are going to live together when she's a teenager. Today I had to put her down for a nap hours earlier than normal because I couldn't take the winning anymore. Any suggestions on what to do. I've tired everything. On a good note, she has been good about everything else. She is such a great big sister. Her new favorite thing to do is play tea party with Charlie and I think Charlie really likes it too. He will even hold the cup. I can't wait to see them really playing together. It's going to bring back memories of my brother and me playing. We used to have so much fun together. Charlie is doing good too. He's growing so fast and I can't believe he will be 5 months old next week. We all just got well from a bad cold which threw him completely off his schedule of sleeping through the night. Now we are up all night long. I'm hoping that ends soon. I'm also thinking about going back to work soon. I really don't want to but my job is so easy to schedule and is a dream job to have when you have kids that it would be dumb not to go back. I'm so blessed that I would only have to work either one day a week or one weekend a month. It can't get better than that. I also have to say something about my sweet husband. He has been great lately at helping me with the house and the kids. I'm so very blessed to have him. He puts up with a lot from me and takes it so well. We've had some crazy moments the last 7-8 months and he has been so wonderful. Thank you God for placing him in my life!
