18. Your relationships with everyone in your life will change again.
I worried my relationship with my husband would never be the same after baby number one, but what I didn’t bargain for is that the love I’d feel for my daughter would make any other changes worth it. Add another human to care for and time for others shrinks even more. The good news? As your kids get a little older, they require fewer hours of direct attention each day. Even my three-year-old can entertain herself for awhile. Still, this means friends and family often have to get in line behind everyone else. And, your dog? He could probably use a walk.
