Communication Is Key
As the girls continue to grow, their schedules are constantly changing. We do what we can to keep Mercedes on a consistent routine but with Emerald you kind of just have to go with whatever happens. There was a few weeks were the girls were going to sleep at the same time and so while I was putting Mercedes to sleep, Rebekah and Emerald would be going to sleep too. That meant me and Rebekah weren't getting to talk much in the evenings before everyone was asleep. So Rebekah came up with the idea to keep a journal that we would both write to each other in every night. It worked really well. So now even when we do get to talk and spend time together before bed, we still write a little note in the journal sometime before we go to bed. It can be a long message or just a quick I love you. It is a great way for us to stay in touch and stay connected even when life gets crazy.
