One thing these two didn't have an issue with before starting school was being "on" all day.
There was ample space in our master-bedroom for what our baby needed plus our stuff. Although a crib was handed down to us, co-sleeping was what made the most sense for me again this time around especially with the issues I had post-childbirth.

Good days for me don’t just include my son not melting down over a pair of pants he wants to wear 3 days in a row or my daughter losing her shit because she can't find Rapunzel's dress that's lost in a pile of dirty clothes. Or my husband making it home in time for [...]
