My infant son will be 3 months old in one week. It’s unreal how much faster time goes by with two kids than with one. I feel like he should still only be a month old! With the time seemingly moving faster, my post pregnancy workout has somehow(totally unrelated to my laziness, lack of motivation, and extreme fatigue) been delayed this far.

My lack of exercise(though, chasing a toddler around the house probably can be considered exercise…) coupled with my inhuman eating practices that consists of a bite of my toddler’s oatmeal in the morning, a bag of chips for lunch, an energy drink, and a small plate of cold dinner(because it’s always cold by the time I can sit down) in the evening has proven to be a pretty bad formula for losing weight.  SO, here’s to change!!

Whenever I feel extra debbie downer about having little kids, I remember these 6 things that make having young kids tolerable:

1. You get awesome tax breaks

This can’t be denied! After having my first son, I remember getting an AMAZING income tax return that following Spring. I just had baby number two this July so I’m definitely looking forward to tax season this year! So here is my advice on this one: if you are looking for a BIG tax break, have as many kids as you possibly can! I bet Kate is banking from her income tax with her eight kids!

2. You always have an excuse to get out of things

Don’t feel like driving two hours to your 2nd cousin’s wedding? “I’m sorry, but my son woke up with a stomach bug this morning…we could ALL be infected so we aren’t going to be able to make it.”
