It's Playdate Time!

With the constant hustle and bustle of life going on, sometimes it's nice to just stop and relax for a little bit. Anyone excited for the long weekend? My hand sure is up!


When LeeAnn at The Life of Rylie... and Bryce, too! invited me to guest post for her Saturday Playdate feature, little did I know that I would end up writing about the topic that I did. Truth be told, I actually hesitated in agreeing to take part in the first place because the last thing I need is another deadline (although LeeAnn was beyond sweet in actually extending mine).

But I'm glad that I did. And it doesn't surprise me that after changing my mind a dozen or so times, I ended up writing about what is most near and dear to me. How could I not? Have I piqued your interest yet? Head over and see!

I hope you all have a great holiday weekend!

What a fantastic post! Reading it made me realize I am not alone. I have often wondered if Kaden is getting 'ripped off' when it comes to being the second child...but as you said, there are so many special things about each! :)

Thank you so much for coming to play today! I know all too well about "Second Child Syndrome". Your post really put things into perspective and now I don't feel so bad. You are totally right about the "lasts" and I know I really cherish these times with my last baby.

Have a great weekend!

Just stopped by to say great post. It is amazing how we change with each child. My daughter being the third deals with some of what you described. She is lucky in that she didn't get hand me downs.

Nick my middle I hardly remember raising him the poor kid. He does get to do things so much earlier then my oldest.
