Patience with 2 boys. They have such different personalities so trying to incorporate things to meet each one's needs daily.

Anything made by Babyganics I love that brand.

Don't sweat the little things and just listen to your heart. There are books, family, friends etc but trust yourself. You will always figure out your baby and what they need, it might take some time but is so worth it:)
10. What is a typical day like for you?
There is no "typical" day:) I can say that I normally feed them, play with them, run errands, clean house etc but every day something can come up so I just try to make it work for everyone while we have fun but get some stuff done.

Explore the world Capture lots of pictures of everything Mommy and daddy both home Find out my history for my boys ( I was adopted)

12. What are your favorite SUMMER time activities to do with your kids?
Anything outdoors I and my boys love it....gardening, beach, hikes etc

13. Tell us a time where you felt like you failed at parenting... but then realized you truly had not failed, things worked out fine. 

There are days where I feel like I don't give them both equal time or not enough attention, but then the hugs and kisses before bed makes me feel better.
