@Boxergirl they are super cool names! My friend has a Hudson and I used to be a nanny for a Tully when I was younger although that one was a boy but works for either sex 😊
I'm not sure if I would join a mothers group. I had never actually considered it because so many of our close friends have bubs. I figured they would be our mothers group hahahaha. I like the idea of our kids socialising and bonding with the bubs of people we are already close to because it just makes it easier. If we didn't have people around with bubs that will be fairly close in age then different story I think.
@TandR, sounded very stressful for you at the start, I'm glad you are both in a better place now and have things sorted somewhat. I totally know what you mean about being around dp all the time! Most of the time it really is handy but sometimes you just need time by yourselves! And I notice that my dp gets quite stressed out by the kids but when I'm at work, she has everything under control.
From my experience, having the 2nd baby was an easier transition because we had already been through the main challenges of 'redefining ourselves' and it was just adding another body into the mix. (Obviously it hasn't been smooth sailing completely)
So I hope the same is for you when you have your second.
