chiro- I don't always handle it, I think that is the key we don't understand about other people, is that we are all just juggling. I can't imagine having to balance the kids and work, I struggle with just the kids and house and scouts and school (the kids, not mine yet). We`do the best we can and sometimes we are frazzled and sometimes we have to step back and say, NO I just can't do all this, that's why I gave up being the head of booster club at the girls school, it all got to be more than I could handle, something I had to give.
Marnica, I remember you. I'm so sorry things have been such a struggle.
HI Jenny!! I find that the 3-4 month mark is when it becomes really hard for the older sibling. I guess the cuteness of the baby wears off and they realize that life is really different forever. My 3.5 year old has become really clingy, asking to be a baby again and trying to nurse, I usually spend part of each day wearing her in my beco.
I'm in North Carolina, enjoying being with my twin sister. It's gorgeous up here. I love the hills and curvy roads, there is none of that in Florida. I REALLY miss my husband ( which is sort of silly because I have been away from him for longer, and I have been away from him all week long for weeks now, but I just like him so much), I also miss my house which is also silly b/c my sister's place is nicer. But I like my life, and while I am happy to be here and really looking forward to my nieces birth and helping my sister out in my heart of hearts I just want to live with Hubs again full time, all week long for months and months and years.
on the coraline front- I swear the child wants to crawl, she seems like she is trying to get herself into position.
